    Question MediaCar vs MediaEngine

    Hi at all...

    i'm planning to start building my carputer platform and i'm quite dubious about which software load for media managment.

    My best choices are MediaCar and MediaEngine (that i've seen to have a big diffusion here in the forum), but i haven't focalized which are the really differences between two them.

    I would to know from some people that have experience on both two which are the principal differences and the focal features of these two softwares.

    My carputer will be based on a EPIA MII 10000 mobo, a NaviPc gps sw, an Holus gps hw module, a Pinnacle or an Hauppage Tv+Fm tuner board, and obviously WinAmp and PowerDvd.



    So, which are the major differences between Media Car and Media Engine softwares??



    Thank a lot and my best compliments for this great site.It's very amazing.

    Bye.

    Both are excellent,lots of hard word and many kudos to the authors.They both are members of this forum,so do not expect us to take too much side.
    Download both,try them,give lots of praise to both and then maybe use only one of then,but keep that to yourself.
    They are free,you cannot look a given horse in the mouth.

    yeah, what he said.
    also, you dont have to wait till you get a carputer to check the software out, itll work on your regular pc so take both for a spin and see for yourself which one you like.

    try all the software from all the authers not just ME and MC. There is a lot of good stuff out there thats being done as I type this.

    I agree with everyone elese. Install both apps and download a few skins from both and see which one fits your needs.

    Well....

    i didn't start a fight between two software, of course.Only know some substancial differences, if they exist.

    Now that i know that both are able to be runned on a normal pc surely i will try them, and also the others discovered thanks to last reply.

    Thanks at all.
