Looking for an htpc front end

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an Optiplex I put together as a budget gamer that I want to put into htpc service. E3-1270, 8gb RAM, RX 570. What would be a good front end for Netflix, Steam, Epic Games, and Crunchyroll? 


Ryzen 3600X, MSI B450-A Pro, 32Gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhz, Watercooled MSI GTX 1080 Armor,

Seasonic SSR-550rm, Samsung EVO 860 EVO SSD M.2, Rosewill Stryker M

 

Xeon X5680, X58 Sabertooth, 24GB KLEVV 1600Mhz , Windforce GTX 960 4GB OC, Corsair CX550M

For videos specifically (locally store content) I vote plex all day long.

 

You might be able to use Steam Big picture and set up external apps to launch. Maybe?

Plex is more for your own content. Not really for Netflix and such. For example I mainly use Plex for its DVR capabilities.

I’ve been hearing a lot about “tvOS”. 
 

Cant say anything about video game support though, since that’s generally not a focus of HTPC systems. 
 

There aren’t really a lot of good ones - especially Windows based. Kodi might be something to look at.
