    You can do that with Universal media server or PS3 Media server and type the same IP. If you have DirectTV those cable boxes stream. I feel like people already knew this but don't watch movies on there 3DS at home (where this would work). Converting them to CIA is a little more convenient if you want them mobilized.

    Yeah, you *could* watch movies but who would want to? Why not just on your computer or television? I thought this was a new homebrew or something that played .mp4 lol.

    I use a dvd ripper then convert it to .moflex and then create a .cia and install it to 3ds. easy and simple for me. (of course, only if the dvd is not copy protected, which is acutally quite limiting).

    I found that the DirectV boxes do not stream, I could not make mine do that.

    Google how to stream with a DirecTV box. I use it every day. I have a DVR and two small boxes and they all do it.

    I have to agree, when you use plex on both devices you dont need to convert a lot if files you would need to convert if you used another media stream.

    Been using Plex for years and it's great.

    That's because in TBT is not allowed to put content like this around forums.

    Seriously : How hard was putting the guide here? lmao

    Apparently it was too hard to copy and past it to here? IDK.

    Plex is meh, I stream a lot of content to my systems/phones/computers/etc and plex was bad at it. I ended up using Universal Media Server to get the job done, and tbh it did a hell of a lot better than plex ever did. Not knocking the people who use plex, just wasn't a good option for me so it skewed my opinion of it.

    In what way did it not work well? Was it slow or what?
