Content that is sourced from a shared Windows 7 media library is delivered to a DMR in a format that the device can play because of a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine. The Windows 7 transcoding ability includes audio and video for many new formats.



Windows 7 PCs interact with the connection manager service, AV transport service, and rendering control service to provide an end-to-end experience for media enthusiasts. A user selects content in a media library, selects a target DMR, and then plays the content. Windows 7 also performs the DMR role.

Figure 13 shows how users can enable this functionality in Windows Media Player from the prominently displayed Share menu. After enabling Windows Media Player to receive media on your network, other Windows 7 PCs and media controllers can discover the DMR and send content to the Player.
