    Is it possible to stream video through a router on SmartTV

    I want some information on a home media server. I have a pc that has 1TB of hard drive and it has all the movies in it. I want to know that does it is possible to stream video content form the pc directly on the TV through a wifi router. My TV is not having any application that can allow me to stream the content from lan network. I want to view all my movies on the TV and I am trying to do that. But it is a bit complicated for me to understand this full networking stuff. I hope this works.

    First of all in your TV you have to locate the app or the process through which you can stream the content from the lan network. If your TV has a wireless connection then there will be something through which you can do that.

    You just have to create a media server using Windows Media Player. And that will be visible in the wifi section of your TV. You have to select that and you can access all the internal file stored. You can select the video or movie file to play the same. The video streaming will be a lot more simpler.

    If you have a router that has as usb port on the same then I think this will work faster. You can find the router online. If you are having a old one then upgrade to a new one which can provide you a lot more faster streaming solution. Many routers comes with usb ports. Just copy your files in that and connect the usb to the router. Then you have to share the pen drive. You can do that through the router configuration page. You can then start streaming the content and it will work a lot more faster.
