Turn Your PC Into Television Using Google Media Server

Televisions were most popular in old days. You can get news, watch movies and do much more. However these days computers are becoming dominant in the area of news, music, games and other entertainments as whatever you want to listen or watch, you can store as well as access everything through PC.

To make your PC a perfect entertainment device, Google recently released a gadget called Google Media Server.


Google Media Server is a Windows application that aims to bridge the gap between Google and your TV. It uses Google Desktop technology such as Desktop gadgets for the administration tool and Google Desktop Search to locate media files. All you need is a PC running Google Desktop and a UPnP-enabled device (e.g. a PlayStation 3). At the touch of a button, you can then:

  • Access videos, music, and photos stored on your PC
  • View Picasa Web Albums
  • Play your favorite YouTube videos

Below is a screenshot of Google Media server.
