Streams with Screams!!!

Happy Halloween fellow streamers!  I've been working over the last week on assembling a list of some of my favorite scary movies and TV shows...With a little help from Mrs. Channel Master and our little PlayOn minions, we think we've come up with a pretty cool list to suit a variety of tastes (and stomachs).   Watch with PlayOn or record with PlayLater to save for a weekend screamfest!
 
And, as a special treat we have added a new plugin to the PlayOn Plugin Channel Store just in time to enjoy for Halloween - Just like being at a 70's drive-in theater, without the speakers attached to your car door...Campy goodness from CreepyFlicks.com

TargetTicket.com and PlayMark...an excellent combination!

Has anyone checked out the new TargetTicket service?  It looks pretty cool so far.
 
I've been testing over the last couple of days and it turns out you can use PlayMark to watch videos from TargetTicket.com at your TV or mobile device...Or record those videos with PlayLater!
 
With a bit of patience, touch of magic...and some secret sauce - you can be watching or recording your favorite videos from TargetTicket.com in no time :)

Here goes:

  •    Stop the PlayOn server
  •    Hold SHIFT+ALT while starting the server again
  •    In the Internet Explorer window that opens, browse to TargetTicket.com
  •    Log in and play a video
  •    Close this IE window
  •    Now, launch IE (normally) and browse to TargetTicket.com
  •    Click on My Library
  •    Play a video. 
  •    Click on the PlayMark button

 
Now you'll see the PlayMark window open with a message indicating "analyzing" followed by a message indicating there were no videos detected.
 
 
DON'T PANIC! 
 
 
Click on next and you should now be able to select the video again in the PlayMark window.  This time the video should be detected and play in the PlayMark window.  Crop the video, click next and then choose to "save", "save & send to", or "save and record"...
 
That's all there is to it...As always, if you have any trouble just let us know.  We are happy to help...Providing solutions and spreading the media streaming love - that's what we're all about!

What is PlayOn?
PlayOn is software that you install on your Windows PC. It allows you to use your Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Roku, iPhone, Android phone or another supported device to access movies and shows from content providers like Hulu, Netflix, Comedy Central, CBS, YouTube, MLB.tv, your personal media, and many more. PlayOn is both browser and media server software, built into one. It browses content from various online providers, and displays that content directly on your TV, iPhone or Android phone.
How does it work?
PlayOn runs in the background on your PC over your home network. It uses standards called UPnP and DLNA to communicate with networked gaming consoles,TVs, and mobile phones working both as an internet browser to access online media and as a UPnP media server to serve videos to UPnP compliant devices.
