Do I configure these laptops as being their own room?
yes, you'll need to assigne any new media director to a new room
One of the laptops is running Windows XP, I noticed a zip file download that contained the majority of the pieces necessary to have it be a media director, will I need to do that
in order to get content? It's already running the orbiter successfully.
i have no idea of what you refer to, but if you have the orbiter running i guess the installation went ok.
Can I configure the core to stream content using VLC? Controlled by the orbiter
on the laptop which uses VLC to receive and process the stream?
you can configure vlc to do that, but you'll meet problems since vlc integration isn't very succesful[/quote]
