Use VLC to watch movies before they're fully copied
Authored by: louish on Jan 24, '09 11:39:49PM

At home I have a 2TB NAS box (buffalo tera station pro, old verson), there I have folders named - Movies (700+) Audiobooks and Music. From my MacBook Pro, my linux work station and My daughters windows xp box, I have drives mapped or mounted to these shares. From the Mac I usually use iTunes to navigate to the content, the Linux and windows boxes just open up in a file folder. From there any movie I want to watch I just "stream" it from the NAS box, I never have to copy any files, I not sure why you do that, but VLC will stream the file fine, without any loss. Sometimes my daughters and I will be watching the same movie,without any issues at all.

regards,
Louis
