    Hey all,

    Is there a way while downloading video off of video camera onto a MBP to connect it another MBP so that both screens can be watched at the same time?

    I'm a football coach and on the way home from away games we'll download the video of the game onto one of our MBP, well half the team is looking over our shoulder on a school bus (a little cramped!) and it would be nice if we could use another MBP to mirror what is being downloaded and watched on one MBP so more players could see it.

    Thanks in advance!

    If theyre both running leopard, maybe remote screen share the computers?

    just turn on remote screen sharing in:
    System Prefs > Sharing > Screen Sharing / Remote Screen Sharing (IIRC)

    just have one or the other be the "host" that plays the video and the second be the remote viewer that has access to it.
