What is the GeeXboX

“GeeXboX is no more than an awesome standalone media player. […] So, GeeXboX is a full operating system, running under Linux and based on the excellent MPlayer. No need for a hard drive, you just have to put the GeeXboX bootable CD into the CD-Drive of any Pentium-class computer to boot it. […]

[Nearly] every kind of media file can be played with GeeXboX, with the OS supporting :

  • MPEG 1/2 movies (MPG files, VCDs, DVDs …)
  • MPEG 4 movies (DivX, XviD, H.264 …)
  • RealMedia and Windows Media movies.
  • OggMedia streams
  • Matroska streams
  • Audio streams like : MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, WAV (AudioCD), AC3, MusePack (MPC), FLAC …
  • Network streams : WebRadio and WebTV
  • Watching analog TV and digital DVB”
