New Zune Software features
With the upcoming release of the new Zunes, the Zune software will be getting updated as well.
On the software side, the entire Zune family will be getting some nice new capabilities. Chief among them will be WiFi syncing that will transfer music, movies, photos, podcasts, and other content from host computer to Zune without any physical connection. Also exciting is the announcement that Zunes will be able to sync with content recorded on a Windows Media Center PC, which means users who've got a capture card or tuner and are using their WMC-PC as a DVR will be able to transfer recordings of TV content to their Zune for perusal while on the move.
A variety of smaller upgrades will also be added when the new Zune software arrives. Support for h.264 and MPEG-4 video will be added, which frees the Zune from its reliance upon WMV. Podcast-subscription support has also been added to the Zune software. Microsoft softened the 3-plays / 3-days Zune sharing DRM by dropping the 3-day expiration period. Even better is the fact that the Zune-store will be adding DRM-free tracks to its library in an initial burst of 1-million songs and promises of more to come.
Wifi syncing is gonna be so sweet and now I will be able to transfer my tv recording straight to my zune :) Still wish they would use the video marketplace on the 360 to act as a video marketplace for the zune.
