    Sharing media (video) from mac to tablet


    I apologize if there are already 30 posts on this, but I am new to the tablet, and have a mac based setup at home. I am using a mac mini server with the latest os and I want to be able to share my videos (tv shows, movies etc) with the tablet, basically being able to stream them from the tablet.

    Are there any guides, or posts that may help me? or can someone simply post the easiest way to do this?

    Thanks so much in advance!

    The easiest way to do this is to set up an FTP server on your Mac Mini, or set up network shares on your Mac Mini and then you can connect with ES File Explorer to the FTP or Network shares and stream the media to your TF without having to transfer the actual files to your TF.

    These are in the System Preferences - Sharing. Network Shares are listed as SMB I believe.

    I will see if I can find a guide on setting this up on your Mac.

    EDIT: See this article for setting up SMB or FTP:

    Also, welcome to the forum!
