Windows 7: 'Play to...' menu similar mac alternatives

'Play to...' menu similar mac alternatives

Hi there guys,

I have a quick and potentially unanswerable question...

I recently acquired a mac (i know... blasphemy!!) and i wondered if someone here might be able to help me out.

On windows 7 there is a 'play to...' menu in windows media player and also in the right click menu. I have a DLNA tv and I can click on a song, hit play to, and it comes out of my TV set up.

Does anyone know of an alternative for mac?

I am NOT looking for advice on how to set up DLNA servers. I am looking for a way to be sitting in the next room, and then send a song to be played on my tv.

Can you help?

Well after too many hours searching and not doing enough work, I think I've found the only software which does this on the mac:


I don't know if this will help anyone, and it's certainly not a perfect solution, but it will have to do for now! I don't know why there isn't more choice. In the days when nearly everything in the home can be connected, why isn't there software to control these items!

I hope this helps somebody!
