about JRiver Media Center May 2014

Don't even waste your time trying this program. I tested it to see if it was any good and found it slow, antiquated and buggy. What's worse, the only support you can get, even for paying customers, is through a forum managed by the lunatic owner(JimH)of the company that develops this program. Avoid at all costs!

Head and shoulders above the rest with a feature set and user community that meets the needs of the power hungry user.
