    Default PlayOn, Plex, and MyMedia

    It looks like there's a new channel called MyMedia which allows you to share your media from a computer to a Roku. It sounds like it does exactly what the Plex channel does. What's the difference and how do they compare to PlayOn?

    From what I understand, MyMedia only works on Windows operating system. Plex works on Windows, OSX, and Lion.

    Plus Plex will stream 720p and 1080i resolution and MyMedia only streams 480p.

    Plus, Plex uses a lot of horsepower to transcode HD media and push it to your Roku.
    Don't try it with a weak computer. I manage to push 720p with my 2.3 Ghz dual core, but it's running nothing but Plex and PlayOn. I would not attempt it with anything less.
