Personal Placeshifting Not Yet Dead


Placeshifting never really has taken off. If not for SlingBox, most average consumers probably would have no idea about the technology…but it looks like Avermedia is trying to change that. However, being limited to Avermedia tuners will severely limit the reach of an app like this.



Similarly, AVerMedia best known for PC tuner cards, has been beta testing SnugTV – which looks to be a pretty comprehensive web streaming service of multiple tiers, consisting of live playback, cloud-based recording, content stream sharing, and, unfortunately, ad serving. I went ahead and installed their current Windows client (some of the screengrabs below) yesterday.
