      Good product - Excellent Customer Service

      I have tried several different media players over the last few years but none of them really did what I wanted. My primary purpose for purchasing this product was to be able to use my TV to display a slideshow. I have an extensive (19,000) photo library that is managed on my Windows using Photos. This product has allowed me to simply make my photo library work on my TV. The reason I mention great customer service is that when I first installed it there was no content available for photos, the entire reason I purchased it. I sent an email asking about the issue and had a response within an hour. There was a resolution and an update to the App within hours. That is Amazing Customer Service

      Works Well When Configured Correctly

      I'm giving this app 5 stars because the email support has been so good. When configured correctly it works really well. The app still needs a little more work though. I was only able to get Photos working when I selected 'Use as System Photo Library' in Photos preferences. This was not obvious until Maksim in customer support told me to select it in preferences. Also, three other device were listed as authorized which I never authorized. I had to de-authorize them to get things working. They still show up in the app however. Finally, I have a new LG smart TV but could only get it to work with the VLC device. Works great but needs just a little more work...

      Works Great

      All the media I have can be shown and streamed easily. I 'rip' my DVDs so I can easily choose what I want to watch without having to wade through cases, open them, and insert in my player. With FireStream, my BluRay/DVD player lists all the photos, songs, and movies I have. You just identify in FireStream where they are stored and it makes them available to chose what you want to see or play. All you need is Smart TV or disk player on the same network or wifi that recognizes a media server like FireStream. It is one of my favorite apps.

      Excellent little media server!

      Like a previous reviewer I migrated to FireStream from the late, great Playback. FireStream does everything Playback did, only better. When I was looking for a Playback replacement I couldn't believe how complicated, and sometimes expensive, other media servers were. Why? All I wanted was to stream photos, music, and movies from my Windows. Fortunately I found exactly what I was looking for in FireStream. FireStream is a great, efficient little media server for your Windows. FireStream is super easy to set up, reliable, secure, and easy on your Windows's resources. FireStream also consistently displays album artwork and metadata. As great as Playback was, it wasn't as reliable with the artwork and metadata. I'm really grateful for this app!

      Great for making my music available

      Great simple one-click install and trivial to configure for my purposes. I wanted to allow my iTunes collection (many hundreds of albums) to play over several internet/DLNA radios scattered around the house. Developer was also very responsive (within an hour!) when I had a question.
