Mezzmo - Deal at Bits du Jour
« on: May 27, 2011, 11:10:50 AM »
Bits du Jour has a 50% off deal today (05/27) for Mezzmo.

Mezzmo can be used to stream media (movies, music, photos, etc. ) to DLNA compliant devices.

It's Later Than You Think.

I;ve been testing it throughout the day, and it seems like a solid program.  I only stream to my PS3, and in the past I have been using PS3 Media Server (PMS).

PMS is free, but it chokes on a number of videos that I have.  Some of them seem to be the exact same format as other videos that it plays without a hitch.  Also, it really has issues streaming HD video smoothly.

Mezzmo has handled everything I've thrown at it, including HD content.

I am just about to the point of purchasing, and it helps that they have a 30 day money back guarantee available.

I have tested/used pretty much all the DLNA servers on the market, and by comparison Mezzmo stands out as the most easy-to-configure and broadly compatible DLNA streaming server. The support has been very responsive and updates are released regularly.

It's quite capable at on-the-fly multi-threaded transcoding for those who distribute media simultaneously throughout the residence. Once it handled 4 concurrent transcoding of 3D HD 1080p (30-50GB per video file) over the network without any stutter.

For people with many HD media devices (TVs, gaming consoles, Blu-rays, Ipads) located everywhere, having a centralized DLNA server/transcoder on a fast network backbone (e.g. Wifi-N, Gigabit Ethernet-Over-Power) is hugely important, means massive savings and peace of mind for you, or else you'll have to buy and maintain devices in each room for each TV/Monitor, and have media files scattered in places that you can't remember.

Are we able to get a 50% deal on this gem? I'm happy to write a review on this for those who are not familiar with this software or the DLNA streaming concept in general.
