Chapter 9. Applications for the Mac mini > Your Mac mini as a Media Center

Your Mac mini as a Media Center

Do an Internet search on “Mac mini” and “media center,” and you will find a fair number of references, including some to a couple of groups planning to write open-source software to smooth the way. However, in playing with the Mac mini and experimenting, I've decided that, except for a few purposes, creating a true media center using a Mac mini is still too much of a science fair project for my liking: too much trouble, too little reward. The Mac mini does have a role, though, if you limit yourself to things that are easy to do and actually useful. I will focus on two of these: using the Mac mini as a music hub and viewing and recording programs on your television.
