Home entertainment is switching to digital. Even movie rental places like Netflix are delivering their goods via bits that’ll be stored on a hard drive. So, how do you manage all your music and entertainment stuff? Media Master has a really great answer. Here Neil Day, CEO, and Eric Hixon, CTO, show me their system and talk about the home entertainment industry.

    […] Future of home entertainment? Media Master’s CEO and CTO showed me their system and while I was filming I was thinking “someday everyone will have a system like this to manage their home entertainment media.” […]

    Scoble videos sync to iPod and play fine. When downloaded to iPhone, videos play fine for a minute or two, then audio drops out and a few seconds later the video stops. Any ideas??

    What stops multiple users using one account?
    Bingo - you’ve got one big collection, that multiple people access… Then presumably can redownload?
    I like the concept, but the thought of uploading a few Gb let alone Terabytes. bbrrrrrr.

    The thing is, Time Machine gives you the back up - then all you need is the secure side of your OS (.Mac doing your music and videos etc).
    The finding of album art is cool - why don’t they resell their concept as doing that? It’d be a small upload (not all the files) and they could reqrite the metadata of your files — it’s a big market, as it’s such a hassle to organise a music collection and make it neat to decent OCD standard (picture, tags, lyrics etc)

    People won’t want to upload what they might not use - why not stream?

    Apologies for double post

    Back to my mac is a concept that would be useful for grannies fearful of setting up firewalls, servers, and streaming…
