It's hard to say it's an "alternate" as it's just one interface. It's the main interface for the server; but they are issuing out clients for:DaveF said:Is web browser the interface, or the alternate interface for mobile devices?Is the 1-5 Kbps upstream of a typical home broadband sufficient to stream video?
Android App is coming soon. Yes, you need to install both the server and the client.. even if you have one PC. The server portion (small) manages the database, you'll have to do a one time setup to tell it where you store your media/etc.Parker Clack said:Where can you get the Android App? I don't see it listed anywhere.
Do I need to put the Server and the Classic programs both on the PC with MCE?
Looks interesting for sure.
Ok thanks. That gets me oriented.mattCR said:I'll have reviews and videos up soon, but because there are a lot of different components it will be different. If you want, it can be used exactly as Media Browser 2 was used; a media organizer for Windows Media Center. It just adds on other functions as well, streaming, transcoding, etc. But no, it's not a DVR,
Right now, it's still a mid-level beta, so it would be unfair to really go through all the goodies just yet as they are still being worked out; but the opening salvo is damn impressive.
A beta Podcasts plugin was released for MB3 server yesterday. I'd never tried the previous one for MB2, but I'm having entirely too much fun with this one. I now have immediate access to all of NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts.mattCR said:Their plugin base is becoming fantastic. Integration of video trailer backgrounds and theme music upon selection, better handling of trailers and extras. Nothing like it on the market. Just fantastic stuff.
