Video Walkthrough of Placeshifting Beyond TV

Would you like to watch shows you recorded at home from work or from anywhere you have an internet connection? I mentioned earlier that this is now possible and is being developed by Ccarlin on the Snapstream Forums for BeyondTV.
All you need is
1. HTPC with a copy of BeyondTV 4.x installed
2. VLC installed on your BeyondTV PC
3. A copy of the test version of webadmin istalled - see instructions in this thread
4. On your router forward port 8120 to your BTV Server PC.
5. An internet connection.

This has been developed as a part of the free (included with BeyondTV) webadmin which also allows you to schedule recordings, change settings and download shows over the internet. For more on this new feature being developed, read this.

If you would like to see how it works in action, select the video below. I forgot to mention it in the video, but you can also switch to full-screen video from the webadmin also.
