Welcome to our sister show of the Mac & Forth Show. The Mac & Forth Show Mini. Here we will be focusing on either some big news of the week or a Apple related subject. We also hope to interview some developers along the way so if you are a developer or know of one please get in touch if they would like to be part of a future show.

Anyway, this week Karl deals with one of his favourite subjects, streaming media. He explains why the Chromecast has become his device of choice and covers how to set up and use Plex.

Please let us know what you think of the Mini show as you’re feedback is important to us.
