I'm using Elisa since two months now on Vista, and it works very well. the interface is smooth, very easy to use. The Project is also moving very fast, new features are added every week.
The video playback support is excellent. SD and HD playback are smooth, lot of different codecs are supported like DivX, H264, AAC, MP3 .... Some WMV and WMA video are not working, but after investigation, it's only with DRM files.
In order to have a complete playback support, you need to install two codecs pack. I tried some, and the most complete is Klite.
You can download it here : http://www.free-codecs.com/K_lite_codec_pack_download.htm
To have the DVD support, see this post : http://forum.videohelp.com/topic355873.html . It's still experimental, but it works quite well.
With this two packs, Elisa has a better multimedia support than windows media center and windows media player:)
Have fun :)
This looks the business. The interface is smooth, polished and easy to use. It will look great on your TV screen or monitor.
It is a pity the functionality simply isn't there yet. Photo playback is fast and smooth (although the thumbnails take a while to generate), however video playback simply does not work. No DVD playback at all (although a module is in the works), and no Xvid or Divx playback, even though all the required codecs are in place and work everywhere else. Some WMV playback works, but who uses WMV as their main format ? Searching through their (meager) forums produced several references to the problem, but no solutions and nothing at all from the development team to indicate recognition.
This has great potential, but is functionally crippled at this point in time. I will certainly be monitoring it's progress and hope the current issues are soon rectified. Until then, however, the final score will have to reflect it's actual performance.
I have tried this with Ubuntu 8.04 and I'm very impressed so far, although I dont think I'm going to replace XP MCE with this just yet.
It recognises just about any audio/video format you can throw at it, and has network connectivity too. If only someone will release a Linux H264 decoder which is as fast as CoreAVC...
The problem is, it has an "unfinished" feel about it, and does crash somethimes, which is understandable I suppose since Elisa is still under heavy development.
A few more versions and maybe we'll see.
