    Don't post here please. Have you ever done wireless video? I work in a lab where we play with this kind of stuff all day.



    Something simple you can do at home, that works fine on MY powerbook. Rip DVD to computer #1. Use your powerbook to connect to it's drive share. Use VLC to play the video_ts folder on your ONLY wifi connected laptop. (Yes it's streaming from the computer upstairs, through apple's poorly done file sharing protocal. And that plays just fine. Hmm maybe I'll play back some compressed HD?....



    ;-)

    well your deal sounds fantastic but it completely ignores copyright protection. if apple released such a device, it would have to encrypt and decrypt on the fly to make the industry happy, as well as just sending the video.

    I have access to latest builds of QT7 through my work and along with my engineers am under NDA. But let me tell you this: H.264 is AMAZING. a 30kb/s encoded file from raw source (320x240 origin) played REALLY well at full screen on 1600x1028. Its amazing what this codec can do at such small data rates.

    Purdue, I went to school there, get out fast! ;-P



    Encryption / Decryption? Yeah probably but this isn't the issue with streaming. That's an issue with selling the movies. The poster is talking about streaming in his own home.



    However that said I remember the start of the itunes store. It was unthinkable that somebody scored a deal with the studios to legally download music. Someday soon I'm sure a company will have movies-on-demand for your computer. Although comcast has a decent selection of on-demand television now... Maybe the cable providers will beat out the computer companies for pay-per-video?

    actually i've got a good network right now at purdue with film/video people, so i'll be here for a while



    but anyways:

    encryption is an issue here if he has a protected network.
