Turn Your Mac into an “Extreme” UPnP Media Server with Playback by Yazsoft

Yazsoft Playback Screenshots

Sure we’ve seen Mac OS X applications that add UPnP media server functionality to your computer so you can stream content to game consoles (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360) and other DLNA / UPnP-compatible devices. But, now, Yazsoft is introducing a new server called Playback that does the aforementioned duties, and also integrates with iTunes (share playlists, albums, movies), iPhoto, and Aperture. Playback even provides device level access control and bandwidth throttling, so as not to interfere with other applications when you’re working on the PC. Other nice backend features include: lighttpd powered server, growl notification support, spotlight based searching, and thumbnail generation by QuickLook. Price: $15 – 7 day trial demo available.
