tubeCore 1.3.0 with AutoChoose Media Server and More

I get emails almost every day asking for one feature or another, or to let me know what we need to work on.  I keep track of those requests and am happy to release a couple of those features you’ve been asking for.

Features of This Release

  • Ability to choose a default Media Server. This will cause tubeCore to automatically go to a Media Server, such as PlayOn, when tubeCore is first run.
  • Ability to choose to play only WMV video in PlayOn. This option will cause tubeCore to always play WMV video on PlayOn.
  • Removed the annoying preview video window from Gallery pages.


  • Windows 7 with Media Center, Windows Vista Home Premium, or Vista Ultimate
  • The latest operating system updates from Microsoft
  • A DLNA Server such as PlayOn, Tversity, or Twonky Media

Known Issues

  • Sometimes when viewing a video that is streaming from the Internet the video playback engine can get ahead of the streaming engine. This can cause the “Video Bluescreen” with a message indicating that the video is in the wrong format. Use the “Skip Back” feature of your remote (or game controller) to skip backwards a few seconds, or rewind. It should play fine after that.

Here’s a direct link to the latest version.
