Yazsoft today announced the release of Playback 1.0, a new zero configuration media server for Mac OS X Leopard. Playback allows users to share their media with any Playstation 3, Xbox 360, or other UPnP compatible device. By default, Playback will share almost any content on the users system. It also automatically integrates with iTunes, iPhoto, and Aperture, making it a perfect complement to Apple's iLife Suite. Users can share all content from these applications transparently or choose specific playlists and albums.
Playback was also engineered for extreme speed. Media is served via lighttpd, the same technology that powers YouTube, Wikipedia, and many other popular sites. And it features a built-in Access Control List (ACL) and bandwidth throttling. The ACL allows users to control which devices have access to their media. Bandwidth throttling limits the transfer rate from the computer to their UPnP device. This allows others on the network to do other internet related activities, such as surf the web and check their email
Playback also includes support for Growl notifications, Spotlight based searching, on-screen thumbnails powered by QuickLook and more. Playback 1.0 is priced at $15.00 for three licenses. A free 7-day demo is also available for download (17.7MB).
