Turn your game console into a media hub
Globe and Mail, Canada - April 11, 2008
TVersity is essentially a media server where you manage your media files (video, music and photos), so that they can be available to other IP devices on the home network. The gamut of content is fairly wide, since it includes Internet TV and radio stations, as well as any podcast subscriptions you might have. What this means is that you basically watch (or listen) to what you want, when you want” on a screen that’s many more inches larger than your desktop or laptop screen… Between TVersity and a PVR, you’ll probably have too much to watch at any given time. But to have all that content in a one-stop shop is a compelling reason to expand your horizons and discover some real Web content gems.

For example, it can transcode video on the fly, so even if your video streamer does not support a particular video format chances are TVersity can transcode it to a format it does support. This is done on-demand so there is no need to convert the file before playing it…. TVersity is not just limited to video and music, either. It can also play Internet radio, Internet TV, podcasts, and RSS/RDF/ATOM feeds on your TV using your media streamer. It’s fast at searching through large libraries and supports keywords, too.
