OK, this has probably been asked about, but I can't find anything about it. So here goes: I am looking for a web server program I can download to my computer at home, and stream media from it to select computers/phones/tablets, etc. This is NOT going to be used to distribute anything to anyone else. Just to me, my wife and my son (eventually when he gets old enough). I'm kind of computer savvy, but for something like this, I am totally clueless. Thanks!

i had previously used netjuke (now combined w/ Jinzora)

http://en.jinzora.com/

not exactly the easiest thing to set up however ...but kinda kewl once it is running



or what about orb?

http://new.orb.com/en.html

haven't used it quite honestly but it sounds like less of a pain in the butt to set up :D


i also messed about with slimserver (squeezebox) but I hated it and personally could never really get into it.


lately i just can't be bothered so i don't have a streaming server at all right now..

If you have Windows 7 then you could give Remote Media Streaming a try.

I used it when I was house sitting for my brother. It allow me to watch the TV shows that my home computer recorded with Media Center.

But it can do more than just that. It can stream audio and video files of varying formats. It sees the other computers as a Library in Media Player so it looks and feels like it's a local drive.
