    Cool

    As the weekend is just around the corner...

    I have no hands-on experience with seedboxes and i was wondering whether i might find someone that has experience with streaming data from a seedbox.
    Having a 100mbits dl/up (250-500GB) seedbox for seeding is quite cool! However, since it is a bit costly, i thought that a good reason to get one will be if i can first d/l the stuff onto the seedbox then instead of ftp'ing it off i will stream it the hell out of there...
    I do not d/l stuff that i don't use and the idea is to "d/l the data as it is used (watched/heard)".
    Now, coding is the easy part... and i was wondering about any limitations which i am not aware off (ports, protocols or seedbox installations limitations). In general, writing a vista (or any other MCE) plug-in and implementing the necessary protocol should not be a big fuss.
    Any help will be kindly appreciated!!! Enjoy your weekend!

    install apache web server and then download kmplayer.

    it'll play video files as its downloading. Thats how I stream, probably the easiest way too.
    Guess this country:
    -Child porn is legal to possess.
    -Home of lolicon & enjo kosai
    -Subways are littered with "Warning: Perverts lurking" signs
    -Has women only subway cars because of the high sexual assault rates
    -Cartoon child porn is a $6 billion industry
    -90% of child porn on the internet is from this country
    -Ranked equally with Cambodia and Ethiopia for prostitution

    i use vlc to stream .avi files. I just load them up and it complains about a broken header and asks if I want to fix it. I click no and then it starts streaming the video directly from the rar files without even extracting them.

    Thanks a lot guys!!!
    Did any of you try to plug it into any MCE?
    The idea is to share the box with moderate users who are not into dl/ul but quite into using the stuff...
