I love watching movies in my spare time. I decided to make my movie watching easier and more enjoyable by building a cheap home theater personal computer (HTPC) to connect to my projector.
This HTPC would give me easy access to my collection of movies and music as well as allow me to play DVD's and Blu-Ray's, stream content from Netflix and Hulu, and play old school emulators.
The media software I used was XBMC. This is a free and open source cross-platform media player application that is extremely customizable.
