What's the easiest / cheapest / best way to watch home DVDs that were copied to a windows share?
Posted on 2013-11-16
I have a bunch of home movies that were on DVD and now copied to a hard drive on a windows PC. Each folder for each dvd has the video_ts and audio_ts folders. What's the easiest / simplest way to get to watch these on a TV?
right now, I have a spare windows PC connected via VGA to one of the large screen TV inputs, I see the windows desktop and can browse the network to the share of all the DVDs. Then play it with a DVD playing app.
Is there another / simpler way?
Isn;t there some standard for streaming media on a home network? 4 letters, starts with an H? HDLA? HNMA? What am I thinking about? Would that work? what hardware do I need?
