TOSHIBA Media Controller allows you to control your music, pictures and videos by streaming content to any compatible device in your home. Playing media on a compatible device is easy. Just drag and drop a media file or playlist onto the icon for the rendering device. For example, if you want to play a slideshow of your favorite pictures on a TV that supports the Digital Media Renderer (DMR) functions, simply drag the pictures onto the TV icon found in the DMR list.
