What I use is XBMC with simple SMB file sharing over network shares as needed.
I keep some stuff on the HTPC itself, and other stuff is streamed over the network. Works great for my rather simple needs.
Hi,I have a PC that I want to use as a htpc/media streamer.I have looked at the parts to make sure they can handle the job and there are no issues.So I pose afew questions to everybody.
1:What are some plausible htpc software solutions that use an OS or their own os for my purpose and what are your opinions on them.
2:Is it worth me building just a straight nas box to do my streaming using applicable software.
Media would be music,tv,movies-bluray playback included.I am not worries about coversion or ripping/encoding as I have learned what I need already.Thanks for any help/links with this.
