I am looking for a streaming server for use at home, basically i have two systems at home one connected to TV and the other for a regular use. both are connected wireless to internet.

with this setup i would like to stream video,audio from one box to another and i certainly don't want to copy the entire file.

Does any one know of any streaming servers that supports most of the video formats ?


Thanks

Don't know about the streaming part-as in while its playing on the computer it plays on the computer connected to the tv.

I would like to see if there are answers to your question also.
Because I have a computer that has a tv card and does well with tv, but there isn't anyway to stream it to my other computers that I know of.

For your videos on the computer not connected to the tv, you could set them to share and they would be in your 'network places' on the computer connected to the tv.

Anyways I'll be watching to see if there is a streaming as in live stream for tv.

network sharing is too slow and the player stops(hangs) several time during the playback.

With streaming may be i can reduce the quality (low resolution) and play the video at a decent speed.

hmmm-

Are the videos set to run on one program for each computer?
Perhaps installing the same software for viewing the videos on the download computer can be installed on the tv computer.

In another words, if one is set to quick time and the other wmp then that might slow down the connection.

Plus wireless is not as good as wired in my opinion.

windows media encoder, run that on your regular usage computer with the video running, then open windows media player on the computer conected to the tv, connect to the ip of your regular usage computer and the port you set up. example 192.168.1.101:8080 I think 8080 is the default port. I hope that isn't confusing.

Just google windows media encoder, I am sure you could find it there with good instructions on using it.

All you need is VLC.

As if no one mentioned it. (I have a friend that uses it for this purpose)
