I wrote a couple of times about Doug Berrett's great WebGuide application for Windows XP and Vista Media Centers. While it was a great tool so far, to remotely record TV shows (for instance straight from your Windows Mobile device) and later to view photos and listen your MP3s, now it got another update which allows you to even stream recorded and live TV - basically making WebGuide4 another software based place shift TV solution (similar to Orb's MyCast) while WebGuide4 is more focused on place shifting Windows Media Center functionalities.

New Features Include:

  • Web-based DVR functionality - pause, play and skip through the program - including live TV
  • Join a recording in progress or start your own
  • Familiar interface - see where you are and how much of the recording is available
  • Configurable streaming profiles to fit your setup
  • Shares a tuner with MediaCenter - you can even watch what Media Center is watching
  • Stream to PocketPC or Windows Smartphone

WebGuide4 requires a Windows XP or Vista Media Center Edition and can not be used with PCs without the Microsoft Media Center Edition functionalities.

WebGuide4 is available as a free trial version. The full version with all features is available for US$ 15 only. If you have a Windows XP or Vista Media Center, I definitely recommend to check it out.

Cheers ~ Arne
