Configuring Existing HTPC for Streaming to Mobile Devices

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I know very little when it comes to streaming. For the last three years, I've been building a digital media library on an HTPC running XBMC. I rip the dvds and blu-rays directly to iso (1:1). I have about 3 TB of movies on there now. Since I've been travelling for work a lot lately, I thought it would be cool if I could stream these movies by internet, so that I could watch it on my laptop or smartphone while away. I don't have the best internet connection. According to speedtest, I have 6 Mbps DL and .67 Mbps UL.

So is this possible to do, without too much manual work? I'm guessing I'd first have to batch rip all the isos to mp4 using something like Handbrake. What else would I need to do? Thanks.

I think Plex can do this online but I'm looking for someway where I don't need to depend a specific software for the streaming on the client side. I'd prefer to just type an IP address and then click on the movie I want to watch. What I'm really looking for is how should I configure the server? Like do I use IIS? If so, is there some guide online to follow? And what settings should I use to rip the isos based on my internet connection? Thanks.

Plex us the easiest way to go, it can encode on the fly, but your upload speed if very limited. Plex requires you to sign up for a free myplex account and then you just buy the $5 android app. Sign in and your good to go. If you go for the plex pass you can send movies to your phone when your home and will be with you when your out. Right now its $75 for a lifetime pass and I find Plex to be very good.
