Plasma Media Center (PMC) is an open source software project that has been designed from the ground up to act as a media center solution for mobile and portable devices, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. It is based on the excellent KDE and Plasma technologies.

Features at a glance

Being designed to offer a rich and intuitive experience to media addicts, the Plasma Media Center software provides a unified media experience on a wide range of portable devices, as well as on other hardware capable of running the KDE Plasma environment.

The project will allow the user to browse his or her local file system for media files with ease, use the KDE Desktop Search functionality to get a unified view of all available media files, view photos from Picasa or Flickr, create playlists from available media files, and play files randomly and sequentially.

Under the hood, supported devices and availability

As mentioned, the software uses the latest KDE Plasma technologies to provide users with a state-of-the-art media center program suitable for a plethora of portable and mobile devices, such as notebooks, netbooks, tablets, smartphones, as well as personal computers and TV sets.

It is available for download as a source archive, which means that you must manually configure, compile and install the media center on a specific device. This means that it should work well on 64-bit (x86_64), 32-bit (i386) and ARM hardware platforms.

Bottom line

Summing up, KDE’s Plasma Media Center proves to be a great product specifically designed to run only on portable devices, transforming them into state-of-the-art media centers that allows anyone to view their favorite media on the go.
