I have a huge collection of videos on my home network and I'd like to be able to access them from anywhere with a web connection. Ideally I'm looking for something that would let me browse my videos through a web browser and stream them in the browser (flv?). Alternately something with a client would be OK, but it's paramount that the server would be able to transcode the videos since the vast majority are way too high a bitrate for me to stream on my connection.
Google searches keep turning up VLC but I'm not sure it will do what I want... at least not without some kind of helper script or something. Any ideas? Does this even exist? TVersity seems kinda close except it seems like it only streams to set-top UPNP devices.
You can also browse your files with it too. Saved me a couple of times when I needed a file for class.
