ghost-like said: that’s actually amazing?? i have vlc and i never knew it could do that! jeez, and it can play .mkv files, too!
Yeah, I tried that Synaptop thing and it was just a piece of junk, honestly. And I was like, “There’s got to be a way to to do this.” I Googled some infantile thing like “how do i watch movies with friends on internet” and a bunch of results were basically screaming VLC at me. I didn’t know it could do that either, or I would have kept it around. (I just use CCCP codecs and WMP for whatever I want to watch, with MPC as backup.)
I had to play around with the transcoding settings to get it to work on Em’s end. Pretty sure that was just a codec issue. Also you have to make sure the port is forwarded properly. But beyond that it’s pretty user-friendly.
