10.6: Stream high-resolution chapter-marked movies
Authored by: macnixer on Mar 28, '10 12:02:24PM

I have been experimenting with UPnP lately and I would like to share something that would really help here. You can download MediaTomb ( for server and Plex ( or any UPnP renderer for clients. Please can broadcast too but renderers on the iPhone are not very well supported. You need transcoding (converting files on the fly) from one format like avi to something that is playable on the iPhone or any of your various UPnP device like PS3 etc. The benefit of the MediaServer process is - it is 100% cross-platform and the users do not have to download Quicktime. They can continue using whatever system they are using - all you have to do is setup the appropriate transcoder if their system does not play your video. BTW, Media server support tons of features - mime types, chapters, external subtitle files etc. check them out.
