streaming your music at home for free

Music Note Bokeh

So you have a PC containing lots and lots of awesome free tunes and mixes you download right off my blog (right?). Now you have this great internet TV, XBOX, PS3 or any other DLNA enabled techno gadget you want to use to stream that music to for cheaps?

Well Foobar2000 has a sweet plugin just to do that. Just install the plugin and you’re sharing all your music & playlists to the local network. Sweet!

Installation instructions? It’s as easy as downloading the plugin, unzipping it and copying the DLL into your plugins folder. Use the UPnp section under Preferences > Tools to customize and you’re ready to go (there’s a read me with the plugin as well in case you want more info).
