Winamp to enable remote access to music collection on PC from PS3, Wii

Winamp Remote, currently in beta, will enable remote access to your music collection on a PC from a PS3, Wii, or mobile phone. The best part is Winamp Remote will be free. Here is how it works in a nutshell:

The product is relatively simple; users store their music files on a PC with Winamp running. Then they enable the application for remote access. After setting that up, users fire up the Wii or PlayStation 3 web browser and head to to sign in. As long as the host PC is on, has Winamp running and connected to the Internet, the user can allow a friend to stream music and video from that machine too. If the user was on the road, at a party, over a friend's or trapped in a coffee house with bad music, they can access their tunes remotely from anywhere with an Internet connection.

(Note: Winamp Remote currently does not work with Xbox 360 because it requires a browser.)

I did not fully understand the article. my apology. That is a pretty cool deal I must say. Kind of like a sling box idea eh. Sony is still gay.

You only make $500 a week?

You need to get a better job so you can afford all the systems and play the best games for each. That's what a true hardcore gamer would do!

People only complain about things they can't afford.

"Note: Winamp Remote currently does not work with Xbox 360 because it requires a browser."

NOTE: Your Xbox 360 can mount your media volumes over the network and play them locally.

NOTE: Your Xbox 360 can use Windows Media Center to play media available on your PC, stream music/tv, PVR, TunerCards, CableCARD...

NOTE: Your Xbox 360 doesnt need this winamp-plugin / webpage stuff.

The keyword you said was "locally" if you were at a friend's house or took your XBox360 elsewhere, you would not have access to your music or files that are on your home PC.
