Jaxie have a Samsung UE46ES7000 DLNA
By right-clicking on (for instance) an avi video file in an explorer window on the lappie and clicking 'Play to', we can stream video to the telly using Windows Media Player as a server (apparently). This is a good thing. But, we want more!
We'd like to be able to stream the PC's live desktop and in particular video streams embedded in browsers (as opposed to already downloaded files). It seems that such a thing may
be possible. There are a couple of programs called VLC
(a media player/server) and TVersity
which, when used in tandem appear to be able to achieve what we're after. However, reading various forums etc. it all seems a bit 'flaky' and there's no clear, step-by-step method that I can find.
I wondered if anyone was doing this successfully already using the above or some other method and might be able to offer advice and insights to help us avoid some of the pitfalls. Otherwise it seems I'll be hitting the forums and doing a lot of hair-pulling-out.
We're using Windows 7 Home Premium.
