    How does one share the screen with a PC user so as to watch a movie together.

    1. Run your player of choice
    2. Open the video you would like to watch
    3. Tell the PC user to pull up a chair
    You may optionally try and wrap your arm around the PC user, but this doesn't always work and may require additional troubleshooting :p.

    On a more serious note - if you're trying to share a screen over the internet, this will not work satisfactorily for movie playback, it would require too much bandwidth. It is usually used for technical assistance or similar purposes.

    Yea you can't really watch a movie through screen sharing...use Teamviewer for support.
