Systm #87: Stream Your Video and Music Anywhere!
Set up a personal media server, it's easy, and you'll have access to your favorite tunes and movies no matter where you go!
If you want to serve up video, music, and photos our favorite tool is Orb. You'll need a PC to run it, but you can stream to just about anything, even cell phones! If you just interested in streaming out music, check out Simplify Media. It works on Mac and Linux boxes along with Windows PCs.
With both applications you'll want some sort of broadband connection. Video will be better served with a larger upload capacity than either photos or music but even with 700k DSL upload video watching is perfectly acceptable.
