With the introduction of the PLi® Jade software in the summer of 2008, you are now able to make your DM box into a true DM //media center client// or what is also known as an //extender//.
The PLi® Movieplayer will allow you to playback many different video file formats from any computer that will run the VLC application //[Mac, Linux, Windows, Vista]//, direct to your TV or to multiple TV's //[not covered in this howto]// with different content if you have more than one DM box using the new PLi® Movieplayer.
So you can now do this from the comfort of your lounge chair with your DM remote control, without the need to convert, transcode or otherwise play with the computer before you sit down to watch a movie. All thanks to the PLi® Movieplayer in your DM box and VLC running on your computer.
**[[http://www.pli-images.org/goodies.php Support the PLi® team]] and get a cup of coffee.**
**TIP:** The //PLi® Movieplayer// is only as good as your //LAN// is! If you **LAN** is __mis-configured__ or not setup correctly, then expect issues!
**Question:** Can the PLi® team help me setup my LAN as I do not have one? In short no, we can not, but you can ask in the [[http://www.pli-images.org/forum/index.php PLi® Forums]]
