synology415play

Synology has announced the DS415play. This is a 4-bay version of the DS214play giving anyone who has a big media-collection even more space to store it on. The idea with the “play”-versions of their NAS:es is that they are geared towards working as best as possible as a media hub offering to stream multiple HD-streams to various devices without breaking a sweat. The trick is that they come with hardware transcoding of various media formats making sure the CPU is not the limiting factor.

Valve releases game streaming over local network!

steam_streaming

One of the cool things with the Nvidia Shield console is the ability to stream games from a computer to it. I’ve always wanted something similar between computers as it would have been nice to have a less powerful laptop and still be able to play more complex games running on a “gaming server”. Well, it looks like I will get my wish as Valve has released the game streaming feature on Steam. Basically what it does is that if you have 2 computers on your local network running steam it will allow you to run games on either computer from the other computer.  This means that even if you have a small laptop with just on-chip graphics it still will be able to run more demanding games by streaming it from the more beefy PC. Since I am currently in Chicago for phpTek conference I cannot try this myself ... Read More »

Plex going freemium – is it the end of the world?

I know I am not alone using Plex for media consumption. I would say it is by far my favorite Media Center Software, much because it handles all my media in the background (getting information about movies and TV-series episodes) and then allows me to access it on my iPad, Nexus 7, phone, desktop and so on. Add the support for “channels” where you find stuff like Hulu, Netflix (don’t ask me how well that works as I cannot use those here in Sweden) and it really is one piece of software I cannot be without.  No related posts.
