Hey,
I travel often for work and I would like to be able to stream my collection from home like netflix.
I know how to setup the computers for my home network so I can access my collection from media browser/WMC but I don't know how to set it up from out side my own network.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
and this one is probably stretching it but is it possible to do the same thing with my android tablet?

currently running vista on my HTPC and my laptop.

You might be better off asking this at a dedicated HTPC website, such as avsforum.com.

I've had some success with Plex, which has the added benefit of performing dynamic video transcoding (so you can stream your HD content across an internet connection). There's lots of options coming out of the woodwork though and I'm just not familiar with many, myself.

Your biggest drawback to streaming from your HTPC is that your upload speed is slow. Unless you pay for a business class cable internet or something like that.

What I do is this. I gather what I want to watch on my HTPC then run it through MCM and move it to where I want it. Then I just put the shows I want in my dropbox or I upload them to https://mega.co.nz/ (New site from Kim Dotcom owner of megaupload) Then when I want to watch them outside my home network I just pull them down watch them and delete them from my dropbox. Still have them on the HTPC. Plus pulling that much data off yoru HTPC unless you are running a smokin fast internet and lots of RAM and one of them intel Core i7 Extreme CPUs it is going to really bog down your HTPC so it will make it shudder and freeze if someone is at home using it.

Are you talking about the alternate looking method? If so, that is the episode ID, which is frequent among animé series where you have episodes that start at 001 and go up to 150+ instead of being organized by season/episode pairs. I would not recommend trying to auto-rename most episodes without the standard SXXEYY or XxYY naming conventions.

I think you posted to the wrong thread. This thread is a general discussion on options for streaming a home library across the internet to a mobile device.

Try remote potato. As stated before you will hit limits on your upload speed but you can change the video quality to compensate. I use it at home to stream to android and iphone devices and outside home for showing off photos, my upload is too slow for video.

Server software is free, android software is free unless you also want live tv on your device and the apple software is around $6 or so.

It also allos you to use your device to control your media centre which is pretty cool when your kids run off with the remote....

I use Tversity to stream my content. I have also used Remote Potato which is also good but due to upload speeds I find Tvesity working better because it transcodes on the fly to a lower bitrate if you want.

No bandwidth limitation or premium version for Plex... it just does its thing. I use it myself and it's pretty solid.
