HomeNet 3.2 WiFi Media Center - plex-xbmc-lite Win-Linux-Mac | 122 MB
HomeNet Local Media Server was developed as a simplified media center alternative to replace or supplement complex and resource-hungry UPnP / DLNA media servers like Plex or XBMC. It is especially useful on Chromebooks because ChromeOS does not enable direct UPnP access. Homenet LMS does not use UPnP or DLNA. Instead it uses a locally installed Windows, Linux or Mac Web Server.
As a minimalist lightweight media center focused on speed and simplicity, some features are absent in HomeNet LMS. There are no thumbnails, categories, indexing or other distractions. Try the online demo to view efficient nested text-based directories and files. Unlike often-bloated UPnP/DLNA servers, there is no database to be maintained or updated so disk thrashing and performance concerns are gone.
Also included is a printable PDF documentation file.
By default, HomeNet can play your MP4, MKV, WebM, MOV, M4V, and OGV video files and MP3, M4A, M4B, OGG, and WAV audio files in Google Chrome and Firefox browser tabs on any computer or device using your wi-fi network. Google Chrome is recommended for enhanced media and Chromecast compatibility.
HomeNet has also developed a VLC plugin player that enables those with Google Chrome and VLC media player installed to play most other media formats via VLC's on-the-fly transcoding. This includes AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, VOB, and 3GP video files, WMA, FLAC, ALAC, and AU audio files, plus streaming radio and video playlist files ASX, ASF, PLS, and XSPF.
Chromecast owners can play any of the 6 video and 5 audio default media formats via the HomeNet Chromecast URL player.
Chromecast does not yet support the additional transcoded VLC-plugin media formats. ( However, VideoLan is working on a Chromecast solution. )
However, this can easily be changed to "barebones" (no background images) or use your own images.
All of these files and radio/video streams were playable by HomeNet in a Google Chrome web browser with (optional) VLC web plugin.
