Need some kind souls to try my channel. Go to www.chaneru.com for setup procedures. The private access code is ZU8JB I still need to come up with a setup assistant for the mac. Please let me know of any problems.
I think $10 is bearable, but just know that you are competing with some free options right now -- so you have to make sure that you show potential payers what they are getting from your channel that they can't get from Roksbox, Sunimi, My Media, Home Media Server (bcl), etc.
If I were you, I would produce a bunch of screenshots and perhaps a video to show how your channel works.
I haven't looked at the channel yet, but I have been waiting for a local media solution that works with iTunes and iPhoto. I have been using My Media, which I like, but I would be willing to switch to a channel that lets me see my iPhoto albums and/or events instead of me having to navigate through the library myself. The way the photos are separated into original and edited photos is the worst part - especially since every rotated photo is considered edited.
The channel will handle that, it looks in the modified folder and either display the original or the modified. The initial title bar allows you to pick the year and then when you drill down, it presents the events. There is a search option so you can go right to the event.
Your video shows the scanning of the local network. So if there is a Network attached Storage (NAS drive) will this still require the PC server? I would pay for this solution but if i need to still run my PC then the other options out there are just as good and free.
