help need for creating a media server

Hi
I am using win7 home premium. I have all my media on this hp laptop. I have an ipad, iphone, blue ray player ant smart tv. And I want my laptop to feed media to all these devices. all these devices connected to the same network wirelessly. Can I get some help for doing this ?
kind regards

I just posted this right below there is an App for the I stuff. Not so sure about the BR player but streaming to a smart TV shouldn't be a problem. I'm beginning to wonder if anyone knows how to use the search feature anymore, this was the very first one.

Sharing with iPAD?

thank you mate but thats not the right way to do it i am sure. If you just want to stream to i devices then it might be ok but there is a way that you can make a master computer or media server from where any device on the same network can access the data and with some advance options you can even access this data from any where in the world. I was told to use plex but it is giving me a runtime error on my system.
cheers

From my point of view that is the "right" way because it works exactly how you just described. In fact I've already had two people commend me on that link because it works perfectly.

As soon as you find a better way feel free to post it here.

I want to stream media to all devices connected on the same network, and you are not sure about blu ray player thats why I said there should be another way to do it. I am not denying your expertise.

thnx

It's not my expertise that created the App for this although it does appear to be one of the better App's I've come across.

What part of the App are you not seeing because it's made to do exactly what you want and the instructions are quite clear, 2.99 gets you the upgraded version and it all looks very straight forward to me.

Streaming Blue Ray, maybe do a search because I'm not sure if that's even possible because of bandwidth limitations. HD streaming is what the App is for.

I think Plex is geared towards streaming across the internet where the App is more for network steaming from Windows 7 machines to ipad's etc.
