I am absolutely in love with FetchTV. It is quite a decent and affordable cable TV competitor, not only that, but it allows you to stream Youtube videos, movies and TV shows as well as the ability to use it as a local media streaming hub.
Whilst trying to get it to work with Windows Media Player after working out why the streaming service wouldn’t start, I realised FetchTV has problems with Windows Media Player shared content (sometimes it doesn’t see it). I searched for an alternative and found Plex.
Plex is an amazing media server that works with FetchTV out of the box. Install it, create an account and FetchTV won’t have a problem seeing it. Not only that, it has a beautiful management interface that allows you to group what is shared and how it is displayed including meta data.
Not only that, Plex works well with all operating systems including Mac OS and Linux. It seems to be the perfect solution for the ideal media server setup for not only FetchTV users, but anyone really.
