You keep all of your movies, videos, and music on a single hard drive, which used to be fine back when you just had a desktop computer. But today, you have laptops, game consoles, tablets, smartphones, and other media players in virtually every room of the house - and yet, your media still sits, inaccessible, on that one lone hard drive. Time to change the game with today's discount software promotion, KooRaRoo Media!

KooRaRoo Media lets you stream your media files to a huge spectrum of devices over your home network! With KooRaRoo Media, you'll be able to enjoy all of your videos and music on your portable devices, game consoles, televisions, and Blu-ray players, no matter where they are in your house. Even better, you don't even have to worry about converting your existing collection into a compatible format - KooRaRoo Media is smart enough to convert each file into a playable format on the fly. Worried about confidential stuff? KooRaRoo Media gives you the power to limit streaming to only certain folders on your network, so you'll always be able to segregate your collection. There's even a Parental Control option.

If you're concerned about file integrity, KooRaRoo Media has you covered. Once installed, you just point KooRaRoo Media to the folders where you store your media, and the program automatically catalogs your collection without touching your files. When that's done, KooRaRoo Media shows up as a media server that your devices connect to as a source of streaming media!

You can stream your favorite online radio stations via DLNA using KooRaRoo, so that they are available on devices that do not support direct Internet streaming.

KooRaRoo Media also allows you to burn-in external subtitles on top of video files for devices that do not support external or embedded subtitles. It will also extract and convert embedded subtitles from videos, and so much more!

Marcelo Spera Hi! It reproduces MKV container coded with x.264 and integrated subtitles?

Dennis Volodomanov @Marcelo Spera - yes, KooRaRoo can stream MKV files to your device natively, if your device supports MKVs. If not, then KRR will transcode it to a format that the device supports. In this case, you can tell KooRaRoo to burn-in those embedded subtitles.

T L I have a WHS (2011), a Desktop PC (win7x64), and a server running Debian with drives mapped on the PC containing a total of over 14 TB of multimedia files. Will I have any issues streaming to our TiVos and Android devices (Galaxy S4, Nexus 7, Asus Transformer Pad)? Can it run on more than one host at once?

Can it stream over the internet like Windows Media Center does via Remote Potato Server?

Thanks!

Dennis Volodomanov @T L - I don't think there should be any issues streaming to TiVos, but we may need a new device profile for them (easily done, provided the TiVos support DLNA). Android devices need a UPnP client (e.g. Bubble UPnP) and it's best to use a third-party player such as MX Video player coupled with a dedicated device profile in KRR. KRR is fully multi-threaded and can stream to as many devices at once as your network and CPU will support.

Streaming over Internet is also supported via the Web interface (see this post for more details on how it works: http://forum.kooraroo.com...-interface).

The best way to test this out is to install a trial version and give it a go. You can also purchase a license here and if something doesn't work and I can't help you, I'll refund the money as per the 30 day back guarantee.

Cary Adams @T L... AFAIK, TiVo is not DLNA capable. Dennis would need to incorporate a TiVo server into KooRaRoo to give you streaming capability. I have both products.

There's a lot of confusing posts on TiVo's capabilities. There are some home-baked streaming solutions for TiVo (for example pyTivo, but DLNA isn't among them.

I'd like to see a RoKu app for KRR... but I realize that probably outside the scope of develeopment here. Fortunately PS3 is my flat screen's DLNA client.

KRR is a good, stable application, with excellent support.

Shelley King Happy customer since June. I second Jac regarding Dennis' support and forum participation - second to none.

TL - Regarding multiple hosts:
- Same host, different streams to different devices - no problem.
- Same host, same content (multiple streams) to different devices - no problem.
- Multiple hosts (I've only tried 2) to different devices - no problem.
(Re different devices - of course, you only want to receive one stream at at time)
I think you get the idea - no problem :)

I'll happily renew for my yearly updates at $9.95 to support continued development and device tweaks. $5.99 is a bargain!

Dennis Volodomanov @Justin West - possibly, once online video streaming is implemented, we'll try to cover as many formats as possible.

@Huasna - Thank you!

@Cary Adams - oh, ok, I didn't know TiVo didn't support DLNA. In that case yes, it's a bit trickier (same as Roku of course). Thank you!

@Shelley King - Thank you! :)

@Dina E - I'll head over to support right now and see what's happening (it's early morning here in Australia).
