WmoteServer

Introduction

Wstreamer application lets You stream Your music files directly from Your PC computer. All You need is to download free "WmoteServer" application from http://wmote.ekode.com, and You are ready to go. It is completely configuration free utility. All You have to do is install the WmoteServer application and unblock main listening port if You have firewall enabled.

Wstreamer will automatically search for all PCs at Your network and detects which of them have WmoteServer application running. Music is streamed in original format so WIFI network must be used. It will not work using 3G network because of significant data traffic. There You can choose between home WIFI network or any other WIFI hotspot.

Using remote WIFI hotspot You need to specify domain name (in case of dynamic IP You can use some free dns services) and do some basic port forwarding (default port nr. 28700) from your router to Your desired computer inside LAN.

For the advanced users it also has some useful options which can be configured on the server or client side.

Supported file types: mp3, m4a, wav*, flac*

wav and flac files are not streamed directly in their native format. Conversion to mp3 is used prior to streaming.
