ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA -- December 27, 2005 -- Lava Software is now shipping PC-Mac-Net FileShare v5.4, a fast and efficient file sharing and remote movie and music playback controller which operates over LANs and the Internet. It can turn almost any old PC into a media center and file server. Versions are available for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
This new version includes remote file and folder searching (by any part or parts of a name, as well as by media type) and remote media player functions. Playlists containing a variety of media types can be created, and subsequent media playback can be controlled remotely over a wired or wireless LAN or over the Internet. A very wide range of media formats are supported by the bundled VLC player, such as MP3, Ogg, AAC, Avi, DivX 5, MPEG4, Quicktime, WMV2, Sorenson and H264. It is a free upgrade for all users.
The new remote media player functions allow users to convert any of their existing computer hardware (eg. an old Windows or Linux PC) into a media center and file server. Computers with TV out capabilities can be used as TV set-top boxes. Since PC-Mac-Net FileShare can also be used to upload and download media files over LANs and the Internet (even during media playback), hard disk storage requirements are minimal.
The Standard Edition is available as a 4 pack (USD39.95), 2 pack (USD24.95) and 1 pack (USD14.95). The Professional Edition is available as a 50 pack (USD399.00), 20 pack (USD199.00), 10 pack (USD119.00), 4 pack (USD59.95), 2 pack (USD39.95) and 1 pack (USD24.95). Free upgrades for one year are included in the price, so the extensive new media control features which are planned will be free.
The free Lite Edition has 10mb download and 2mb upload file size limits, time-limited media playback, supports workgroups with up to 3 users, and can be downloaded now from http://www.lavasoftware.com. The Standard and Professional Editions have no file size limits, support large workgroups, and offer additional features. The Standard Edition is limited to music playback and short movies.
