WebGuide4 now free

September 7, 2007

I personally haven’t use WebGuide4 but have heard good things about it. It’s similar to Orb, SlingBox, or Sony’s LocationFree in that you can placeshift live TV. WebGuide connects with your Media Center PC so you can schedule, view live or recorded TV straight from your browser.
The developer is moving on to the Media Center team so future development of WebGuide will be discontinued.

I’ll check it out and possibly replace Orb as a way to stream media from home.

Even if you don’t have an iPhone, it could be an easy way to create mpeg4 video.
