  1. macrumors regular

    i have a mini running leopard with external hd's holding my itunes library (songs & movies) and ibook on tiger with a wireless g airport express serving both.

    when i try to stream full length movies from my mini's library onto my ibook i get a buffering window which never seems to end. ie i'm not able to stream movies and watch them on my ibook.

    is there a solution to remedy this or suggestions even?

    i should note that streaming audio and short video clips works fine.

    Movies don't stream well over G networks especially if you are stream from 1 wireless device to another wireless device.

    You can copy it over first before you watch, or use ethernet cable to stream.
