Media Center can automatically convert audio and video streams for client playback when your connection is not fast enough to play unconverted media. The setup is simple. Just use Media Center on your server to generate a six character passkey. Then enter that key on whatever client you want to use. A test mode can use JRiver’s servers to test whether access from outside of your network will work.
HTPC (PC de Home Theater)
A home theater PC is a computer that is connected to a television, projector, or AV receiver for the purpose of viewing video or television from across the room. Think Couch Potato. This requires what is called a “ten foot” interface or GUI so that the person on the other side of the room can read it well enough to control it. The ten foot view of Media Center is called Theater View. A remote control is often used so that the viewer can stay on the couch. JRiver supports several types. Media Center has a ten foot interface called Theater View. It is drawn with 3D graphics so it has a nice springy feel. It’s configurable too, so you can remove unused portions or move things around to suit your taste. The background graphics give it additional appeal. Theater View is touch screen friendly.
J. River Media Center for Windows PC is a powerful way to store and view your photos. Connect a camera, wait a few seconds for Windows to find it, and click Acquire in the Action window. The files are copied to a temporary folder, where you can delete, rotate, and tag them. Then use MC’s Rename, Move, and Copy tool to move files to directories based on date or other tag information. Edit files with a right click. Crop, adjust, resize and other common tools are available. The edit automatically stacks the originals and each saved version, so you can easily undo or start over. The original remains unchanged.
Note: 30-day trial version.
