Have you heard about media streaming? It seems like a technology exclusive to techies, isn’t it? That may be in the past. With the various user-friendly applications on the Windows platform, you can set up a local media streaming server in your home with minimal technical expertise. This program is a user-friendly application, a media server, that allows users to communicate, remote control or transfer media between the PC and other DLNA-compliant devices that are connected to the same network. You can leverage this technology to enjoy your personal media library (home videos, photos) on your PC or other choice devices.
Once you have installed the application on your PC and all your devices are connected to the same network, launch the app to stream to devices running various media player software and dedicated clients. The developers of the application also provide extensions that allow the server to access media library on Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, LG Smart TV, and more. With the Mobile App version of the software, you can stream on your mobile devices irrespective of your location.
It has an inbuilt media library that allows the user to organize and manage the content of the library and monitors the connection to the client. The app automatically converts the media to ensure compatibility with the target device. The application also offers a web-based interface for configuration, management of users and devices. The tool allows parental control to define some restrictions for children.
