Emby (former Media Browser), beginning with version 3, is no longer a single program. It encompasses a large suite of applications all communicating with a central server that manages your library. No longer locked inside Windows Media Center, Emby can now bring your entire media library to not only all of the computers on your network, but also many of your portable devices. Whether it's the Roku in the living room, or your tablet on the back porch, Emby will bring your media right to you. Requires .NET Framwork 4+.
