Plays most kind of media, streams from any Mac or PC on your network to any Mac, iPad or iPhone (or outside your network if desired). Plugin architecture, and integration with iTunes and iPhoto.
No sort by composer for iTunes, requires some skills to set up, some customization requires knowledge of system software and a little Python
Plex is remarkable software that turns a Mac Mini connected to a TV into an Internet-based Media Center that makes the most of the Mac's software and integrates metadata (information about movies and TV shows from Internet databases) into a beautiful user interface that you can operate with your Mac remote. This software gets us much closer to the future of television, and does so in a very 'Mac-like' way. Imagine FrontRow on steroids, plus an added plugin-in architecture for Internet video and audio (like Hulu and Pandora in the US, other streaming content like YouTube and TED Talks) and an attractive and highly customizable on-screen guide.
