Access Personal Media from Home Network:
Another useful JadooTV feature
is the ability to access all your videos, music and photos on your PCs over your home network
. It could also be from Networked Attached Storage device, or even on a connected USB storage device. I did not realize that Microsoft Media Player can also act as a video server. It was quite easy to configure Media Player 11 on my XP based PC, to share its content on the local network
. You do need to make sure that the firewall is not blocking external access. The Media Player senses your JadooTV and asks you if you want to share content
with it. The nice thing is that you can not only watch videos but also collectively watch your photo albums with music streaming in the background. JadooTV automatically senses the resolution
of your TV and scales the photos appropriately.
