7. Distribute > Stream a DVD

Stream a DVD

You can stream a DVD to one or more people, across the Internet.

Practically anyone who’s worked with digital video is familiar with streaming video, even if that familiarity is just from watching a streaming video via the Internet. For the most part, streaming video involves either a live feed [Hack #87] or a preprocessed streaming video file [Hack #83] . Using Video Lan Client (http://www.videolan.org; free, open source), also known as VLC, you can stream something somewhat unexpected: a DVD.

To stream a DVD, you will need the VLC application and a network connection. To view the stream, you will need a video player, such as QuickTime Player (http://www.apple.com/quicktime/; free), Windows Media Player (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/mp10/default.aspx; free), or VLC. Of the three players mentioned, VLC will be able to view the widest range of streaming video.
