Put a Video Jukebox in Your Car Theater

Use home theater software to provide a great multimedia experience in your car.

Home theater personal computers (HTPCs) are pretty leading-edge stuff, but if you want to go to the real bleeding edge, you’ll need a car theater PC (CTPC). Imagine all the rear-seat entertainment you could provide with a few hundred gigabytes of movies, music, photos, and games [Hack #72] , all of which you can take with you anywhere you drive!

The good news is that there is a lot of choice in HTPC software; the bad news is that it varies from very beta to fairly mature, and most of it was not designed for in-car use. I’ve isolated a handful of good candidates, though, and to help you narrow down the choices I’ll go over the caveats of using these programs on a car PC.
