    Hi All

    I wanted to ask if there was some software (for OSX & IOS) that would allow me to leave my external HDD (Which has movie files) on at home which would be connected to my iMac and be able to stream/link it to my iPhone to watch anywhere in the world.

    Be like a private connection to my device, if there anything like this?

    If there is anything like that, you better have decent wideband UPLOAD speed at home, Several mbits/sec. Is that the case?

    I use Air Video HD but it can be hit or miss.

    Why not use Dropbox (or some other cloud storage)?

    Look into Plex. I believe that should be able to do basically what you are looking for.
