I have a Windows 8 PC and an Android mobile phone. In my PC, say,
C:\Videos, I have a file
test.mp4. I want to watch this video "over internet" (not local network) in my android mobile phone. I can achieve this using desktop screen sharing apps like Team Viewer. But is there any solution to just stream the file (in a particular directory), other than sharing entire screen?
In my understanding, there will be a
- desktop client application (which will list the files in directory, and which can stream the file on request)
- an android client, which can connect to my desktop client (in a different network) and provides UI to the user, to list down files in my media directory, and while selecting the file, user will be able to see the video (like youtube)
I cant do this with a local streaming solution like VLC because I don't have static IP. I want to stream over the Internet instead of LAN
