I've got a big media collection on my main PC, and would like to be able to watch it on different devices (TV, laptop), without having to manually copy files around. A good way to do this seems to be via DLNA. I managed to get a DLNA server running (TVMOBiLi and XBMC both work), and can view my files from other DLNA players (is that the right term?), specifically XBMC. However, it's still quite complicated to add the server, browse to the subdirectory (usually something complicated like
My Content/Videos/TV Shows/S - U/blah/Season 03). If it's like that, I could just 'share' the folder with the OS's file sharing function instead.
What I'd like to have is to have the videos (and music) integrated into the client's library, so that they show up with all the metadata they have on the server (season, episode, artwork, etc.), and not just as filenames. Is there a way to make this possible with XBMC or another program? Do you have software recommendations?
