Media streaming is the process of delivering media (pictures, music, video, and recorded TV) over a network in a continuous flow of data. With streaming, you can play to network devices such as digital media receivers and digital picture frames, as well as to computers. HomeGroup enables and simplifies the streaming process. To enable streaming of media on your computer to other devices, in HomeGroup (shown earlier in Figure 18-2), select Stream My Pictures, Music, And Videos To All Devices On My Home Network.
For more information about configuring streaming options and playing to other devices, see "Sharing Digital Media over a Network" on page 442.
