Hi all,

I have setup my brother with my old machine, which is a capable 1.5GHZ athlon with 512MB and 200GB of storage spread over three harddrives and running winxp. My dad also has a computer which is a 166MHZ / 200MHZ pentium with 64meg of ram and running windows 2000...

My brothers machine is filled with movies in divx / xvid and I will shortly be setting it up with a MPEG2 encoding card to record from our sky box... I would really like a solution where I could transcode the divx files into mpeg 1 and play them on my dads computer over the network on our TV downstairs.

The 1.5gig should easily be able to realtime transcode to mpeg 1? I think so... I'm looking for a software solution to let me do this. I will be looking into VLC as I know it supports streaming with transcoding. Ideally I would like to be remotely able to select the film I wanted to view and have the powerful computer automatically transcode it...

Any ideas or suggestions?

As you said yourself, VLC should do the job. I've used to it to transcode DVDs to watch on the Zaurus in bed.

Have the streaming / transcoding part working now with VLC... Is there an easy way to have the client VNC control the streaming VLC?
