Stream Your Media Around With Skifta

"Skifta allows you to play media pretty much anywhere, on any device. You can stream media-whether it's music, photos, or video-from your phone to a TV, from your home PC to your phone, or even from your home PC to your friend's TV using your phone as an intermediary. All you need is a DLNA-compatible device, which includes lots of different things, from a PlayStation 3 to an XBMC box to a simple Windows 7 computer."

It seems like there's a new media streaming app coming out every week, and Skifta seems about the same as every other one I've looked at. They're all based around DLNA compliance - unfortunately, neither one of my big-screen TVs has DLNA functionality...so I'm kind of hooped in that regard. I've opted instead to connect devices to my TVs that allow me to get the media I want. In the case of my 50" plasma on my digital wall, it has an HP Slimline computer connected to it; my 72" DLP has an Xbox 360 and a Boxee Box. My next TV will certainly have DLNA compliance, but I'm not about to go out and buy a new TV for that sole purpose.
