Active development and support of iTheater is no longer underway in lieu of other media application availability.
Before the release of Apple's own Front Row and the mass adoption of online video streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix, iTheater was one of the first pieces of third-party software to act as a conduit between users and the media on Mac OS X.
With the release of the Mac mini at MacWorld SF 2005, it became possible to keep a small computer, with a lot of power, in the living room to share the multimedia content created by Apple's "Digital Hub". iTheater is but one of a few non-Apple Macintosh media center applications over the years, and like most others has an interface that is very similar to Apple's own Front Row. The application was designed to discover and present an array of multimedia content in a user-friendly way.
iTheater was developed and released under the GNU General Public License. As of May 2009, the iTheater website redirects to their SourceForge repository. Active development and support is no longer underway in lieu of other media application availability.
