Streaming videos from WHS to laptop outside of home network

I have a Windows Home Server with a lot of movies on it and until now I have only watched them locally at home. I wanted to find out though how you can stream them whenever you are outside of your home network, just on public Wifi or something like that.

Have you checked out wegotserved.com? That's probably a better place to ask about streaming from your WHS.

From a network point of view, you'll need a good upstream bandwidth to support playing back any movies.

Are you saying that I can't get assistance on this from here and that I need to go elsewhere? I just wanted to see if there was a particular piece of software I could use or something like that.

I'm saying you might want to go to a forum that's dedicated to WHS to get the latest and greatest applications and specific help. Geez.

Sorry, I didn't mean to come off rude or anything. I did end up finding a lot of useful information on that site, so thank you.
