How do I access my movies from anywhere like the commersial?

Hello everybody, I keep seeing this Windows 7 commercial where the guy is in school in a different country and the main reason for this commercial, is that he was able to access his movies from home and watch them. Here's a link for the commercial:

YouTube - Culture Shocked - My Idea - Windows 7 .

Anyways how can I watch my movies when I'm away from home using a different computer like the commercial?

Thanks for your help.

hi idmew, and welcome to sevenforums,

you really shouldn't believe adverts, but maybe windows live mesh is the way to do it? i don't know why they can't tell us in the advert.

Also, he's probably set up some sort of VPN/Remote desktop or 3rd party software like TeamViewer...

Hi guys, thanks for the replies.
The commercial make it sound soooo easy, but I guess it's BS.
I don't know if I can trust other software to access my computer.
I guess I can always use a portable hard drive lol.
Take care guys.

It's easy, but expensive.

That or the commercial is referring to cloud computing, via windows 7.

windows live mesh is free, and claims:

Quote:
With the remote connections feature in Windows Live Mesh, you can work on your computer from a computer in another location. For example, you can connect from your work computer to your home computer and access all of your programs and files as if you were in front of your computer at home. Before you can connect to a computer remotely, you need to allow remote connections to it in Windows Live Mesh.

i haven't had the chance to play with it yet, so i don't know how easy it is.

Yeah, I just saw the commercial saying it was possible with Windows Live.

So it is indeed either expensive or cloud computing. The commercial also showed them extremely placated, and in a monotonic voice saying "thanks cloud"

There is only one logical explanation: Cloud computing is where the zombie apocalypse begins.
