Introducing FireStream: the most advanced UPnP/DLNA media server for the Mac platform. FireStream is written for the Mac from scratch with an "it just works" philosophy, so that you can be sure it provides a true, seamless Mac experience. Enjoy all of your media, including videos, photos and music on all of your DLNA devices. FireStream natively supports media from Music, TV, Podcasts, Books and Photos as well as any user specified folders. The media is organized just like it is on your Mac and includes thumbnails and rich metadata. Its a snap to locate and stream your favorite content from the comfort of your couch.
Transcoding allows you to play media files that would normally not be supported by a device by converting them on the fly. You can specify connection speed and quality settings to fit your network and device capabilities with ease or enable subtitles with a single click.
With automatic device detection and automatic transcoding configuration, FireStream makes streaming your media as easy as can be. Just power on your UPnP/DLNA media device and FireStream will instantly locate it. Using the Devices tab you can adjust advanced per-device transcoding, network and quality settings giving you fine-grained control of each device. FireStream also has a built in authorization system that allows you to limit access to specific devices.
Unique just-in-time indexing technology allows FireStream to instantly share your media without having to index your entire Mac first! Changes to your media libraries or folders are instantly reflected in the FIreStream content index.
