Media Organizer and Server, Continued

You can play your media within the Media Organizer (Figure 5). One very strange thing we noticed is the Play, Stop and Pause buttons are not labeled as Play, Stop and Pause. Instead they are labeled A, B and C!

Video Buffer settings

Figure 6: Video Buffer settings

The Media Server will start every time the computer starts and it will show up in the Windows taskbar. You can configure some options by right-clicking on the icon and selecting Configuration. The most important settings to configure are the Video Buffer settings (Figure 6).

These settings tell the player to buffer a certain number of MegaBytes before playing the media file. The configuration is not user friendly because the screen doesn't initially tell you what the minimum and maximum limits are. You type in the number and then you click OK, hoping that the program takes the input (Figure 7). A slider would have worked much better.
