What is the quality of the videos you want to stream? If it's 1080p content, you will be very lucky to do that wirelessly, powerline or wired is that best option there.

What are to using to stream to? Something built in to your display? Add on box? Roku? WD? You are pretty vague.

Oh no the quality is not that high at all they not hd videos just normal quality videos downloaded from the internet i dont think we need to go into more on that but u also ask what I would be using to stream it to the television I've been looking at a WD Media Player with built in WiFi

a couple years back I had Best Buy come into my house and set up a really good wireless network and a separate network just for my work but the first network I could stream videos from a hard drive to the 4 different TVs in my house I have since moved into a small apartment and would like to do that again but I'm not entirely sure what are was used to accomplish this I don't even have the equipment anymore it was all sold reason not important anyways I kinda have an idea of what I need I'm just not sure if there's anything extra because had a lot stuff in the for networking and I'm not sure what went to what and what did what now
