Hi,

I hope someone can help me with something.

I have a Desktop PC with 2x D-Link NAS connected where I keep my work, backups and some media like photos, videos, series.

I have other two laptops, ipad, and iphone.

I would love to be able to make the media folder available for all those devices with VLC or something like that so I could access that media in the bedroom for example.

Any idea of how could I get that working?

Thanks in advance.

Plex is and playon isn't. Another option is XBMC. XBMC tho is a lot harder but more flexible. If you like the playon they tend to have an xmas lifetime deal for around $40. I tho suggest plex for beginners and XBMC for pro's.

Plex or playon can make all that plus streams from off the web. They transcode the media so it works with just about any of your devices.
