    Hello, my goal is to set up my Home Theater PC to play a movie that I've clicked via browsing the cover arts (similar to Netflix & RED-BOX DVD rental units). Is it possible to get DVD Profiler to do this or is there other software out there that is better browsing your collection and picking what you want to watch via the cover arts.

    If there is anything that I am missing here, please feel free to offer some of your comments and suggestions.

    Thanks.

    xbmc.org will do what your after it comes with a number of versions for different devices & as a standalone OS.The windows install version including linux allows full screen or windowed.Using add-ons & scripts will provide even more functionality including viewing youtube etc

    can be placed on thumb drive for portability or even on an external hdd
