Google introduces media server add-on for Google Desktop


Google has announced free goodie to download, this time a streaming media server called Google Media Server.

The Windows-only Google Media Server is an add-on to Google Desktop that indexes the various DRM-free media files on your computer and shares them across your network using UPnP and can even stream to DLNA compliant devices like the Sony PlayStation 3, meaning you’ll be able to stream media to your TV.

Interested in getting media from YouTube or PicasaWeb, too? No problem–Google Media Server is able to stream content from these two Google-owned as well.

To check it out for yourself, make sure you have Google Desktop v1 or newer installed and grab the Google Media Server gadget here.
