I've been looking for how to do this for about a week now over 4 forums. I have a mac laptop and a FreeBSD server at home. I've been putting up some of my movies on my server. When I want to watch a video, on my other computers (running linux) I just use:
ssh user@server "cat /dir_to_video/video.avi" | vlc -
This opens up vlc with a ssh stream of the video of my choosing. However, if I run this on my mac, it gives me an error. Streams the video's coding but doesn't open the video. Any idea of how I can stream this video to my mac?
