By the way, I already asked someone for ideas and this is what he told me:
"im guessing here, but it would look something like this ...
first, you'll need an X server running on your PC. this isnt a problem is youre running *nix (since they use X for their graphic display), but you'll need a special app for windows (like hummindbird). then you need ssh (again, not a problem on *nix, but you'll need another app for windows).
then you'd need to ssh -X to the account.
the -X switch tells your local shell to divert all display data back to your local X server.
i think you could achieve the same thing by using telnet and setting the DISPLAY enviroment variable.
then you'd need some sort of media player on your network account thats capable of watching wmv9 streams ..... maybe mplayer ?
and _then_ you'll need to activate mplayer, at which point it'll open on your computer (or inside the Xserver window on a windows machine).
from now on it acts like a normal program you've opened, just point it at the file.
this is NOT simple (unless youre on linux)
and im partly guessing here, since i've never done that"
Someone also mentioned the term "SSH tunnelling".
I did a bit of searching and it seems this is exactly what I want to do:
So I guess it IS possible. Yay.
And please don't just say "he's right", I need more detailed instructions to get this done...
