Home Media Server question
Posted on 2010-11-11
I am hoping you can help me here. I don't know if this is possible but let's see.
At home I have around 5 PCs/Laptops and a lot of audio/media that we all share in the household.
The media is currently stored on a USB and pretty much we have to attach to it whichever PC/laptop wants to use it.
What I am hoping to achieve is to turn one of the PCs into a centralised media server that will hold the media (instead of the USB) and stream this media over the home network/homegroup.
The PCs and laptop are connected wirelessly.
Now my questions are:
1. Is the setup I want possible, with a program to stream the media over the network/homegroup? If so does anyone have any suggestions on software for this for both OS and streaming software.
2. If this is not possible does anyone have any alternative solutions.
