hi Demi welcome to the forum

Media player itself actually doesn't need any special setup to stream the films, it's already preconfigured. To set up the homegroup, check out these great tutorials by our very own Brink

Homegroup - Create
Homegroup - Add Computer or Join
Homegroup - Change File and Folder Sharing Settings

Just one thing to mention that Brink doesn't cover in his tutorials. In order to stream, you need to make sure that under the file and sharing options (the last tutorial I posted) make sure that the box for Media Sharing is ticked
