Elisa is a complete multimedia center which can play all sorts of multimedia contents from our computer, a local network, or the Internet. It is an open source application, distributed under GPL License, through which we can, for example, handle our music collection, watch DVD’s, or share our photographs with family and friends.
The program's interface is really attractive; it introduces a modern, functional design, with options arranged in a very convenient way, providing an easy navigation. Elisa consists of four main modules: music, videos, pictures, and peripheral devices. To start with, it can play all types of music files and playlists, plus such features as completing a music collection with artwork and music videos. We can also access thousands of online radio stations. Besides, it supports all video formats, from DVD's to videos from streaming sites like YouTube, DailyMotion, and WebTV. Handling our pictures collection with Elisa includes photo sharing, access to websites like Flickr or deviantART, and more. On the other hand, it can detect multimedia content from USB devices, digital cameras, iPod, etc.
On the downside, it is necessary to point out that Elisa is not recommended for slow computers, as it is rather demanding, consuming excessive system resources. Another disadvantage is that the program is ready to use after a rather long install process and a complete scan for media files. The best part is that it’s free, and we can conveniently handle all multimedia files within this single application.
