Use Shairport4w to stream your iTunes library to your PC

Apple's AirPlay can be used to stream your iTunes media library from your PC or Mac to your iPhone, iPod or iPad as well as a wide range of supported hardware such as speakers and AV receivers. Shairport is a related, free tool that can be used to stream media files from your iOS device to your Windows computer.

While a Windows based computer can be used as a media broadcaster, but it cannot be used as a receiver. This is something that Shairport rectifies - all that is required is that Apple's Bonjour service is installed and that you have some media files that you would like to stream.

Getting Shairport up and running is an incredibly simple process. Launch the program and enter a name for the access point you are creating and enter a password if you would like to add a layer of security. All that is then needed is for a device with an iTunes library to log onto the same network as your computer.

This can be another PC, a Mac or a device running iOS - you just need to ensure that you are using a version of iTunes or iOS that supports AirPlay. You can then fire up your iTunes library and opt to broadcast it to your access point, making it possible to enjoy your music collection anywhere in the home.

Shairport4w 1.0.7.3 adds these changes:

- fixed Issue #21 (reloaded) - wasn't hundred percent developed with the previous version

Verdict:

Shairport provides a great way for Windows users to stream a single music library around the home

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
