nessViewer is the all-round media application to edit, browse, collect and arrange, present, transfer and stream media. It combines media player, media center, media server, media editor and preview tool.
The main idea is to use only one media application instead of switching between several applications like DVD Player, Front Row, iPhoto, iTunes, Photos App, Safari, QuickTime Player and Preview. And to combine the most important features of these applications with further functionality.
nessViewer supports the following media: DVDs, pictures, movies / videos, media shows (storable playlists) and portable documents (PDFs). Movies and videos are playable in all common formats (like AVI, DivX, MKV, MPEG4) thru the QuickTime extensions Flip4Mac and Perian. Beside these supported media, the media center also allows it to access EyeTV movies, Aperture / iPhoto / Photos App media like images and videos, iTunes media including bought or rented movies (DRM) and Miro video podcasts (RSS). Furthermore media server, DLNA client browser, and media center allows it to access media via network:
- Thru the media server and the free nessViewer app for iOS devices, media can be transferred and streamed between Mac and iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. FTP and HTTP are used as protocol, and even DVDs and EyeTV movies can be streamed from Mac to iOS.
- Thru the DLNA client browser and the media center, many media servers like DS214play, Plex, PS3, Serviio, Twonky or XBMC UPnP and NAS volumes can be accessed and their media (videos and pictures) presented.
