View Full Version : WMP on LAN?

12-11-2007, 03:57 AM
Can I use the files that are stored on THIS computer as a source for files on another WMP player on a second machine on the same LAN?

I want to be able to share the files bi-directionally with either computer using either WMP files of either computer.

I feel I need to work in the WMP>>Options>>Network tab..right?

I'll need printed instructions here please.

These units are both XP/SP-2, WMP10....maybe I'll try the PCLOS networking later thru WINE....we'll see!

<why do I complicate things that are running just fine?>

OK..I started clicking on things in that Network area, and still I cannot get the files to cross-mingle and WMP tells me it cannot find the file.

I think I've done it right...but it isn't liking my tinkering yet.

I tried the AUTO Config..but somehow it is being dumb.

Is this a PORT assignment problem?

If your computers are networked and if the folder with the files are set to share then they should work fine.

I can play MP3's from any of the other 3 computers here on the PC in my Office. Likewise my daughter can play mp3's on her pc that are on my HDD here.
