Windows 7 Homegroup

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to play a DVD over a Windows homegroup, or do I have to rip it first?

I think you can, try sharing the DVD drive off the other computer and then play it through the network, see if it picks it up

Only seems to want to share libraries through homegroup. I'll have to find another option.

Yea thats just the advanced sharing options i think advanced sharing is default in windows 7 professional and above, anything below will just have simple sharing turned on by default which will show share with homegroup

Added permissions to the drive and I had to add the drive as a shortcut to my documents library to even get it to show up on the other computers. Needless to say this didn't work. It won't open up the drive link on the other computers.
