Windows Media Center is a discontinued digital video recorder and media player developed by Microsoft. It is an application that allows users to view and record live television, as well as organize and play music and videos.

The application is included in various versions of Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium and Ultimate, and all editions of Windows 7 except for Starter and Home Basic. It is also available for Windows 8 Pro as an add-on.

Media Center can play slideshows, videos, and music from local hard drives, optical drives, and network locations. Users can stream television programs and films through selected services such as Netflix. Content can be played back on computer monitors or on television sets through the use of devices called Windows Media Center Extenders.
