The beauty of having a DVD server at home is that you are able to stream media from your laptop or networked PC. You can easily stream them from one central storage location. Each DVD server has its own storage function depending on the kind of model you purchase. You can store DVD’s, CD’s and even Blu-ray. How to store it is pretty simple. You can use any software downloads, put your favourite CD or DVD into the tray and then download it directly to the server. The information from the metadata is transferred so all your collections are automatically sorted by genre and even by actors.
Getting a media server is fairly easy. You just need a method for storing media and of course a network connection that has enough bandwidth so that access can be allowed. It requires a big amount of RAM or a multicore CPU. If the media server is used at home then RAID is used because of the slow transfer speed in the current network. It can also be used to prevent loss on certain media files. With the use of special hardware, most dvd servers can capture the media. For example an analog tv broadcast can be captured by the use of the analog TV tuner cards. The video gets encoded with the help of the media server software or the tv tuner card hardware in the digital format. The media is then stored in the media server.
