Windows CE 5.0 Networked Media Device Feature Pack – New Art.


The Windows CE 5.0 Networked Media Device Feature Pack gives you the ability to create a device that can stream content from PC’s around your home network and ‘play’ that content on your TV set (photos, music, video) – the Network Media Device Feature Pack ships with a Sample User Interface which can easily be updated.


Here’s how the standard user interface looks (pretty cool, eh!)


And here’s how the user interface looks after dropping some new images into the Networked Media Device UI folder (even cooler, right?).



The Networked Media Device user interface can be updated in a number of ways, the simplest is to replace the existing bitmaps (after backing them up!) with new bitmaps –  simply replace the bitaps in this folder C:\WINCE500\PUBLIC\FP_NMD\OAK\NMD_UI with new bitmaps, rebuild and you’re done – the alternative is to modify and rebuild some of the source code that ships with the Networked Media Device Feature Pack.


Here’s a link to sample bitmaps displayed above.

    I do NMD in the emulator,

    May I ask a question,

    except Windows Media Connect,

    How to build another media server,

    which the nmd can connect to.

    thank you

    Actually, you don’t need a server to connect to – all you need is a PC running Windows XP with Windows Media Connect (WMC) installed.  You can download WMC here:

  3. Looks great but will not install because it terminates with an error that a module could not be installed and then back everything off to its original state.

    There appears to be no place to see what is missing or what the actual error is.

    Following the installation guidelines to the letter putting everything into a specific directory and then trying to install fails.

    Any thoughts.

    I have built NMD_UI at my X86 platform successfully. But I don’t know how the DVR Engine can work in this version. Is there any sample GUI like NMD_UI that we can see its capability ?
