the free media center solution.

Formerly known as Elisa, The Free Media Center, Moovida is a project to create a media center solution for GNU/Linux operating systems. Elisa runs on top of the GStreamer multimedia framework. In addition to personal video recorder functionality (PVR) and Music Jukebox support, Moovida also interoperates with devices following the DLNA standard, like Intel's ViiV systems.


Before downloading Moovida for Linux, make sure your distribution does not already include it. Among other distributions, Debian and Ubuntu already offer Elisa. For help see
