The MPF Media Controller

This page is about the MPF Media Controller (MPF-MC)

You don't have to use the MPF-MC. Details here.

Like MPF, the MPF-MC is also written in Python, using a Python-based multimedia framework called Kivy. Kivy is a wrapper for the native graphics & sound libraries on your computer, and it leverages the latest technologies including SDL2, Gstreamer, and OpenGL.

All of the tutorials and installation guides included in this documentation explain how to install and use the MPF-MC, so there's really nothing to know about it other than it's probably the one you're using.
