What is Media?

The software program Media or is a media-sharing technology developed by Taiwanese electronics company, Acer. The primary function of the program is to allow users connected to a home network, to share media files across different devices/platform. The “network administrator” has the option to leave out a specific device, so that media files stored on the device connected to the home network, will not be visible to other users.

During setup, the user is provided with two sharing options: share media to other home devices, and allow other home devices to share media with the user. Basically, the program utilizes Wi-Fi connectivity in the home. When any user logs-in to connect to the home Wi-Fi network, they will be asked if they wish to share any media to other users, or if they wish to disable media sharing.

The program provides the user with the Shared Libraries feature, which allows users within the network to add, delete and access files stored within the shared folders. This gives all users within the home network to have full control over the types of files they want to be made visible, for public access.

Windows 7 needs to be running the computer in order to install the software. The computer also needs to be compatible with DLNA-compliant devices.
