My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011 v2.0 Pre-Release 1 Now Available
I've always been more of a MediaBrowser fan, but there was one specific aspect of My Movies that always kept my eye wandering: My Movies for Windows Home Server. Among other things, I have recently been upgrading my home server to WHS 2011 and I figured that meant that particular temptation would ease, but no. Instead, I notice over on We Got Served that Brian Binnerup has posted a beta of the forthcoming My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011.
My Movies for Windows Home Server serves as a backend for My Movies as well as a metadata provider for a host of other streaming devices and players. It also provides an automated disc copier and audio disc ripper for every major disc format. My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011 is specifically intended as a backend for My Movies 4.0, which is itself still in beta, so be sure to read the Pre Release documentation carefully, but it also means support for the new TV Series funtionality of My Movies 4.0 (review).
My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011 operates as database back-end for My Movies clients in multi-zone environments. My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011 - 2.00 Pre Release 1 operates as back-end server for My Movies 4.00 Pre Release 5.
