Not even sure how to do that. I've tried the Libraries thing through Windows Media player but not certain it's even working correctly. also, I had my only domain controller server go out and I'm limping along with cached credentials etc. I have to rebuild everything one of these days.
And, I am old school and still don't understand all the Home network crap with Win7. I've always had a home network connected to a domain for testing, etc. (which is like the Win7 workplace network). Wish they would have left all the networking components alone.
I think I was able to turn on Windows media sharing on this win7 box, but all the documenation I've seen for doing so really seems convoluted to me.
I'll have to wade through it some more I guess.
I must have done something right because I can now see the server showing up and I can play music from it.
So it seems windows media sharing is working afterall.
Now I need to figure out the PCSM, or are many people just using the Windows Media sharing and leaving it at that?
What are the benefits of each, is that posted anywhere?
