comment How to configure QoS for CrashPlan, which connects on HTTPS port, without affecting all other HTTPS traffic?
+1, though I'm surprised the setting isn't having any effect and requires workarounds. I never got this working because it required far too much effort, by the way, so I can't say whether the set-up others mentioned here works.

Curious... I do have those installed, and I know someone who couldn't use them due to SMB issues...

comment internet-based sync software that will keep running after Windows Live Sync stops doing PC-to-PC-syncs?
You want it free. Reliable NAT traversal requires someone to host servers, which costs money. This is therefore an impossibility. What you could get, however, is a product with a low fee that gives you optional paid storage, used as a buffer while a PC is offline. I'd personally pay for that.

comment How can I keep folders synchronized between several machines over my home network?
Windows Live Mesh used to be good at this, but they've killed that direct PC-to-PC feature. So we're back to square one... sigh...

comment Program like airvideo
Do you want the live transcode, or do you just want a really nice UI to play any of your movies over the network? PCs don't tend to need the transcode step because they can just decode the original format anyway.

comment How do I watch or stream movies over WiFi without constant stuttering?
For the record, while I initially thought VLC helped, in actual fact movies watched off mapped drives still stutter. As for streaming... firstly, it has never worked, and secondly, am I supposed to control it via the remote PC?... No deal; I want to choose what I watch after I’m lying on the sofa, not before :)
