So now that I've got my HTPC built and Windows 7 installed, can anyone recommend a good streaming app to use?
So far, I've had suggestions of VLC (for playing media more than anything), Plex (which I like the looks of it but haven't tried it), Windows Media Center/Player (heard it's not all that great compared to the other freebies out there).
Suggestions? I mainly want something that can allow me to sort, manage, and access my ripped DVD and Blu-ray collection, as well as my audio collection which will all reside on the HTPC and on my home file server. I would prefer free unless there is a REALLY GOOD paid app that makes its price justifiable (I know, "justifiable" is a subjective term).
