What is Moovida?
Moovida is a free media software that combines a flexible desktop app, Moovida Core, with a spectacular media center interface, Moovida Immersed, which allows you to play all your video and music files. It automatically assigns cover art from online databases to complement your media library, while allowing you to connect with plugins such as internet radio, podcasts, and much more.
How does Moovida work?
When first running the software, users get Moovida Core, the flexible application ideal for desktop or laptop use. When ready to access their media via TV, the Moovida Immersed extension can be opened from the Moovida Core application, introducing users to an innovative, more visually engaging experience, optimized for remote control navigation on HDTV.
Why does Moovida provide 2 interfaces (both media player and media center)?
Moovida offers a complete media solution optimized for the screen of your choice, whether desktop/laptop or TV, whereas standalone media centers and desktop apps tend to lack in functionality, providing a limited user experience. It is clear that media center usability had certain drawbacks, especially when it comes to manipulating file information such as creating playlists, managing and editing files; actions that can be performed more quickly on a flexible desktop app. Our focus is still the media center environment, however, when complimented by a flexible desktop app, we believe the media center user experience is far superior.
What file formats does Moovida support?
Moovida supports most commonly used file formats. A partial list of codecs and file containers includes: mpeg/mpg, mpeg1, mpeg2, vp6, svq3, mpeg4, h264, h263, theora, wmv, avi, asf, mov, ogg, matroska(mkv), flv, mp3, ac3, aac, dts, vorbis, flac, wma.
How to check which version of Moovida you have?
From the main menu, go to “Help”, then select “About”. A dialog box will open with Moovida N.N.N. The Ns correspond to the number of the version.

Is Moovida compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7?
Yes, Moovida is compatible with all Windows versions since Windows XP.
Does Moovida work on Windows N?
Those using Moovida on Windows version 7 N should download the Media Feature Pack for optimal video quality.
What happens if I am I asked to download .NET during the installation?
If your Windows operating system version is XP or older, it is possible that you do not have the .NET framework on your computer. Moovida will ask you to download it in order to continue with the software installation. This is a framework required to run many common Windows applications such as Word and Excel and does not constitute a risk to your computer.
How do I uninstall Moovida?
You have 2 options to uninstall Moovida:
- Go to the Start menu > “All Programs” > “Moovida” > “Uninstall” OR
- Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" option from the Windows Control Panel
If experiencing difficulty uninstalling the program, make sure to accept the latest update of Moovida when prompted (version 184.108.40.206 and onwards). Once the latest version installed, you will be able to perform steps 1 or 2.
How do I import media to Moovida?

How can I see synopsis info for my movies from Moovida Core?
In the main window, inside the list pane, right click on the movie file for which you want to see more info. Select “Video Information” from the menu that appears. You will find release date, genres, director and actor info. If “Video Information” is disabled, this means your movie is not categorized. Find out how to categorize your video here.
What happens with the videos that appear as “Uncategorized” in Moovida? Can I rename these files?
Although Moovida should recognize most of the films you import, in certain cases it will not recognize a title and will appear in the uncategorized section as “Unknown Title” (you will still be able to play video). Just right click on the file you want to categorize, select “Manual Identification”, select from “Movie” or “TV Episode” in the drop down menu, type the title and press “Search”. Select from one of the generated suggestions. If no accurate suggestion is offered, this means that the film is not available from the online database.
