iSedora Overview

simple to use • install it and forget it

iSedora is designed to easily play your digital media — movies, broadcast recordings, music albums, photos, podcasts, audiobooks and the others — on TV or any DLNA compatible device. Using iSedora is simple: just install it, point out where you store the media and forget about it. No more effort is required to access the media from anywhere in your house: simply turn a TV on and select what you want to play by a remote control.

powerful • transcodes any media on the fly

Keeping iSedora easy to use means getting it more powerful inside. Whenever you are playing any piece of media, iSedora does the best to bring you extra quality of content rendering. Playing Full HD movies with 5.1 digital sound or viewing hundreds of photos seems a trivial task for your TV or other DLNA compatible device when communicating with iSedora. Moreover, iSedora is able to render media to multiple devices simultaneously, revealing all its inner power to keep your home smarter.

universal • streams to any DLNA device

iSedora comprehends your media files, no matter which of dozens of existing formats you choose to store your collection. iSedora follows up your DLNA devices and performs intelligent transcoding of media files if these are not playable by a device natively. While fine-tuned to work best with Sony Bravia TV, PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360, iSedora makes all its efforts to harmonize with any DLNA-compliant gadget.

friendly • updates to fit your needs

With iSedora being constantly tested upon clouds of media types, formats and codecs there is just a small chance of some file being not playable. In case it actually happens — or any other trouble occurs — feel free to report a problem to iSedora Development Team. We'll trace your issue asap and release a new iSedora version fixing the point or introducing a new feature. Greater part of latest public updates was inspired by iSedora users' requirements.
