Streaming movies from an NAS drive


Noober
 Share

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone.

 

My computer hard drive is getting full, so I'm looking into storage alternatives.

 

One alternative is to buy a Network-attached storage (NAS) device -- essentially a large disk drive that gets plugged to your router. The contents are then available to any computer on the network.

 

BUT -- I have a number of porn movies that I have purchased from online sites. Many of these are protected with some sort of digital rights media (DRM) protection. After downloading the movie, I needed to enter my login ID and password before they would play.

 

Am I going to be able to move these to the NAS drive and watch them from any computer on the network? Or is that move going to honk up the drm protection and leave me with a file I can't watch?

 

I'm an experienced computer user but I don't know much about streaming media and all the associated protections.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

What happens when you move one of the files to an external hdd or USB stick? Will they still play?

 

Furthermore what happens if you disconnect from the Internet then try and play them?

 

I imagine they won't play and you will need to some how strip the DRM.

 

A side note about NAS

 

Buy the best you can, you get what you pay for. Qnap are good.

Sheesh -- never even thought about that... worth looking into.

 

Thanks for the suggestion!

Im about 99% sure you should have no problem, you should be able to play them by entering your login information just as usual.

Another possibility is just investing in another big external hard drive. I have several 2TB externals myself, I find them useful because I have WDTV so I can just plug the hard drives in there and the WDTV box hooks up directly to my TV so it lets me play whatever movies/tv shows I have on those hard drives.

But yea as stated above a good idea is to convert the drm files from whatever format back to the same format which removes the DRM protection for you......or find a new porn site that doesnt apply DRM

I do basically the same as poster above but use an ASUS O'Play to hook up to TV on homenetwork. Can stream directly from any shared disk to TV either through standard cables for SDTV or HDMI for HD. I also use a NAS attached to the network to stream to this unit as well. Can also physically attach external drive or flash through USB or connect to external disk via eSATA. Mine attaches to network with CAT cable, other models will go wireless, but I have heard complaints that they stutter from time to time when streaming movies. Unit also goes to web TV (5,000 channels supposedly) and internet radio (25,000 stations supposedly). Does not connect directly to Youtube, maybe in the future with firmware upgrade. Plays literally all formats including DVD & ISO.

Not exactly the answer you were expecting but I have put ALL my old movies in the cupboard and used a bit torrent to download again.

 

Down load as avi file . Use VLC to watch them and never have a problem.

 

I tried several different programs to convert files and just wasted my time.

There are some that only employ words for the purpose of disguising their thoughts.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
