Media Browser(formally known as Video Browser) is a personal media aggregator that runs on Microsoft Media Center platform. In layman’s term, it is a media aggregator plug-in for Windows 7/Vista Media Center that takes all you recorded, digital, or ripped media and presents you in a simple and easy-to-use interface.

You have to add the folder(s) that contains all your media. You can also add podcasts and install plug-ins, such as, film trailers, high quality thumbnails, mediainfo provider, and so on. All this can be done from the Configuration window which is automatically started after you have installed Media Browser.

    Please stop using the phrase “In layman’s terms,” and at least spell it correctly if you're going to use it – it's terms with an “s” at the end. Also, the rest of that sentence has another issue “takes all you recorded” should be “takes all your recorded” – thanks.
