VLC as a great multimedia video player/ network streamer



I sometimes forget that VLC is cross-platform. Given that linux is my primary platform I’ve used it quite a bit in playing around with streaming a video from one machine to another. Engadget has a great tutorial up on using VLC (Video Lan Client) to stream multimedia content from one pc to another. It’s really a great utility. It’s also available for a variety of platforms including Windows (even CE (PocketPC)), and Linux, OSX…


One of the mistakes I made with it early on was the assumption that if I wanted to stream over the network I needed to look for VLS (Video Lan Server). Which you don’t. The client can stream content out to another machine. There’s even a good web-administration utility to manage the function of the VLC instance “serving” the stream.
