Google Media Server Brings Desktop Content to Your TV

Google Media Server is an application that brings your digital media to your TV. It uses Google Desktop Search to locate files on your computer and UPnP devices to see the content. So things like Set Top Boxes, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 can see the content on your computer.

I did install the program but haven’t fully tested it yet. It did show up on my DirecTV HR21 but the content was still indexing so it didn’t have anything to display (I have a lot of digital content). This is an interesting step for Google, but they make it really easy for anyone using a Windows computer to effortlessly get content to your TV.
