Does WHS now support remote media streaming? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does WHS now support remote media streaming? I was on hold with the Microsoft Store and heard something about media streaming when you're away from home.

     

     

    Thanks

  • No, it doesn't. Vail (Windows Home Server V2) will.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Is this going to require an upgrade purchase?

    MS has not announced any pricing at this point (Vail is still in beta; you can download the beta now from Connect).  However, I'm sure it won't be free.  :)

    MS has not announced any release date.  The beta has been available since April 26th.

    If you have spare hardware (or a beefy enough system to run it as a VM), I would suggest you try it out (personally, I love the remote media streaming  :)  ).  Just remember it's beta so don't keep your only copy of data on it (since there are bugs).
