video streaming on the LAN
I would like to steam video, perhaps using something like VLC, to a TV remotely located. Let's assume the video is avi formatted.
The data path would be from the harddrive to the ethernet, then to a device at the TV side, and onto the TV.
Can someone give me a pointer or two on this?
I don't want to connect the TV to a HDMI card on my computer, rather I would like to connect it to a box that receives data via my LAN, and then puts it into some format the TV can readily display.
What devices should I be looking at? Thanks.
