pytivo and streaming? Also streambaby metadata?

Can pytivo stream videos to my premiere or only copy? I am using win 7 ultimate. If so, instructions on how?

Also, i was using streambaby, but whenever i add metadata using metagenerator, it hangs up on "Please wait" when i try to load a video, then crashes and says app is unavailable. If i remove the metadata it works perfect. I can have the cover art, just not the info. Any suggestions?

pytivo copies. But, it does so fast enough that you can start watching as soon as the transfer starts. End result is the only real difference is you must delete the recording when you are finished with it.

For videos that are in already compatible format that don't need transcoding kmttg has a "pyTivo stream" button under FILES tab that can be used that launches TiVoCast HME app and uses pyTivo as a video server. This gives you unlimited size streaming unlike streambaby that has the 1.1GB file size limit after which it must re-buffer. It doesn't have the convenience to remember where you left off though if you stop watching, and doesn't handle any files that require transcoding of any kind, so very limited usefulness.
