HomeCast Media Center - Free media streaming application
Review by on
The HomeCast Media Center gives you the possibility of playing music and videos on various devices, while the media files themselves are stored safely on your computer. As long as you have a working Internet connection, you can enjoy your favorite tunes and movies on your phone, tablet or your friend's computer, at the other end of the country. Furthermore, you can benefit from the same advantages of most media players, like the possibility of creating playlists, sorting music by genre or other criteria and much more.

The software is maintained with donations, so you don't have to pay for it unless you want to help future developments. Downloading and installing HomeCast doesn't take more than a minute, and it doesn't involve any complicated settings. Also, you don't have to install any third-party codecs or drivers before running the software.

HomeCast has a web-based user interface, which you can bring up at any time, either through its executable or through a system tray icon. The best part is that you can access this interface from anywhere in the world through an online account, on any web browser. If you want to connect your smartphone or tablet, you can just scan a QR code after you log in on your computer.

Besides the aforementioned QR code, you will also find two apps, on the main page, for streaming music and videos. These apps allow you to build up libraries with your media files, create playlists, organize everything, and play your media just like with a traditional player. If you add new files into the source folder, you can update your HomeCast library at a moment's notice, with a single click.

HomeCast provides you with many other features, besides its media management and playback capabilities. For example, it lets you create additional user accounts so that you won't be the only one enjoying all that good music you have on your computer. You can also generate share links for one or more media files, to allow other people to play a song or watch a video, without having to log into an online account.

With HomeCast Media Center, you and your entire family can enjoy all your favorite songs and movies anywhere in the world, without actually taking them with you.

Pros:
You can stream media files from your computer to other devices using any browser. You don't have to go through a complicated process to prepare everything. The software provides you with a wide range of features, besides its basic playback and sorting capabilities.

Cons:
The web interface can be a bit confusing when you start using the software.
