Can i access linux mce media on a non-linux mce machine?
« on: March 30, 2008, 07:10:34 pm »
Hi guys,
Im very new to all this.....thinking of putting Linux MCE onto a server i have at home so i can distribute my media around the house, but i have a quick question: Can i access the media on my Linux MCE machine from a standard wireless laptop running XP, or a MacBook running OS X 10.4. I want to be able to store all my media on the Linux machine and then stream (is this the right term to use?) the media from this onto my MacBook or XP machine when i want to watch the media on them. How easy/possible is this? How would i go about doing it?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.
Thanks in advance,

Luke

You can access LMCE media via smb ("windows" share/samba).  Stream isn't really the correct term, you're just accessing the media as a file at the OS level.  I think it may also have som upnp abilities as well.
