I have a pretty robust movie and video collection, and it's all on an external HD, currently plugged into my MacPro. I also have an Xbox one, and I've been using SofaPlay to play movies on it. And it works great. You just drag/drop movies onto the app, and it plays. But my MacPro is not in the same room as my Xbox. But I also have a MacBook, and I'd love to be able to do the same thing from the couch: drag movies onto the app, and have them play on the TV. Because I'm lazy But obviously I don't want to have to plug the HD into my MacBook. Kind of defeats the purpose. I know I can do "screen sharing" etc, to control my MacPro from my Macbook, but that seems like a hack to me. is there a way to, maybe, plug my External HD into my TimeCapsule, or FIOS router to allow the movies to be accessible from my Macbook AND my MacPro? If so, would the USB connection be too slow? In other words: is there another way to make these movies accessible to more than one computer, through my home network? There seems there should be a way to make this HD w/ movies on it "universally accessible." Is it possible?
