    Hey guys,

    I want to setup streaming at my house, so that I am able to play videos from my home, and view them at another location. How would one go about doing this? I have Windows Media Encoder, however it gives me no options for Video Streaming. Any ideas?

    Well, Windows Server 2003 has a windows media server built in... and I think 2k server did too... but that's a rather expensive option for something so minor... why not just setup a website on your computer to host the files and just connect to the server and view the media files in WMP9... they download as they play normally.

    You know that's a wonderful idea, I'll try that tonight. Didn't think about it that way... except the thing is... I'm not all that great with IIS. :(
