MyMedia from PlayOn lets you stream all of your favorite photos, videos, movies, and music that are stored locally on your computer, straight from your PC to your TV. The best part is that it's yours to keep for free. MyMedia works with a variety of devices including set-top boxes like Roku, Google TV, and popular game consoles like Xbox 360, Wii, and WiiU to send your local media files directly to your TV.

Now you can watch your home videos, movies, or host a slide show night to share all of your favorite captured moments with your family and friends on your giant flatscreen TV, without hunching over your computer.
