An ex Microsoft employee recently open-sourced the SDK for the popular Windows Media Center. This SDK file can help developers to further improve their applications.
As you already know, the Windows Media Center comes pre-installed on devices running Windows 7. Although most users are not fond of the Windows Media Center, still they didn’t like the idea of removing it from Windows 10.
As a matter of fact, many users used a popular trick to run WMC on Windows 10.
If you still miss the Windows Media Center, here is a piece of good news for you. Charlie Owen, an ex-employee of Microsoft recently uploaded the SDK on GitHub.
Expect some bugs
It’s not an official release but still, you can use the SDK to bring back some nice memories. The Windows Media Center was initially released with Windows XP back in 2002. It allowed users to use a remote device for playing their media files.
You should keep in mind that Microsoft stopped supporting this service a few years ago and the Media Center may not work as intended on your PC.
However, the SKD version will help developers to improve their applications. Charlie Owen stated the SDK comes with some useful tools that will help them to develop similar applications.
Feel free to dive deep into the new GitHub SDK project to explore the technicalities of the Windows Media Center.
