The following are the minimum requirements for the PlayOn PC software.

Microsoft Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or later), Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003/Windows Home Server (Service Pack 1 or later). 64-bit versions of Windows are also supported. Windows 7 is not fully tested, but should work well

Windows Internet Explorer 7 or later

Windows Media Player 9 or later

"Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration" is recommended to be disabled on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Home Server Installations; click here for assistance

Pentium 4 3.2+ GHz, Pentium M 2.0+ GHz, or any multi-core x86 processor

512 MB RAM

100 MB of available disk space for installation, plus recommended 4-5 GB extra space on the same drive where Windows is installed; click here for assistance on using a different drive

Internet broadband connection of at least 1.5 Mbps, and home network with wired, powerline, or 802.11n connections (for wireless home networks with 802.11g, it is highly recommended that either the PC or device be on a wired connection)
Both the PlayOn PC and device should be connected directly to the same router (on the same IP "subnet"). Advanced networking setups using additional network interfaces such as virtual adapters (VPNs) or Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) may work, but are not officially supported

Third-party security software must be configured to allow full local and online network access to: C:\Program Files\MediaMall\MediaMallServer.exe3

1 It is recommended that your CPU scores around 500 or higher from PassMark. If your PC is at or just above the minimum specifications for CPU and RAM, you may have trouble streaming videos, unless your PC is used as a dedicated PlayOn server. Make sure you first try out PlayOn to verify that your PC is capable of realtime transcoding without maxing out your processor or causing playback buffering.

2 Wireless home networks are often unreliable. Make sure that you adequately test PlayOn through your wireless setup before committing to purchase a license. We highly recommend wired connections to avoid potential video streaming interruptions.

3 The path to C:\Program Files\MediaMall may vary, depending on international versions of Windows, or which drive partition PlayOn is installed on.
