How to share files with media player between computers?

as above, how do you get media player to allow the access/share files on a wireless network home. Also how can you say what version of media player you have? any help appreciated cheers



Personally, I don't use file sharing in wireless connection. But take a look at this site:

Note in firewall settings, you must allow sharing between computers.

  • How to share files with the airport?


    I have the new airport Time Capsule (2 TB).  I would like my wife to be able to access all my pictures, that are in files on my computer that I save on airport using Time Machine.  She uses several products Apple (iPhone, Macbook Air).

    What is the best way to do it?

    Is there anyway to access pictures in my backup Time Machine?

    If this isn't the case, I think I can just create a folder on the Time Capsule and copy files, which would be accessible on the Time Capsule via shared in the Finder.  But I see 2 disadvantages of the present.  I must first of all, don't forget to update this file manually.  Secondly, my photo files are about 70 GB and it seems like a waste of space, to have it on the Time Capsule twice.  So that means less space for my backups, the backup history go back less far, right?

    Thanks for explaining!


    On your computer, turn on sharing files via sharing preferences. In the first list box, add the folders on your computer that you want to share. In the second list box your will see the users default access. Simply add your wife's name to the list. You can create a new account on it to connect to your computer or you can just give your credentials so it can connect directly to your user account. Or you can change the privileges of everyone from r/o r/w.

  • just today, when I try to play AVI files from my digital camera... no sound plays on my pc with media player v11... I suspect it's a codec problem, but how do I know for sure?

    just today, when I try to play AVI files from my digital camera... no sound plays on my pc with media player v11... I suspect it's a codec problem, but how do I know for sure?

    Hello Jorstar1,

    Thank you for your message.  Windows Media Player 11 supports .avi, but compression can dictate whether he will play or not.  This is very probably a Codec issue, you can perform a websearch for a Codec that will play any avi compression.
    Please let us know if it did or did not help to resolve this problem.
    See you soon

  • How can JAWS says that media player inspects my files, I stop this?

    JAWS screen reader

    When playing audio files in Media Player, then closing, JAWS mentions "inspection of files" then left at talk. Like a screen reader user blind, I'm worried, I relayed on this program.  Is it a requirement to have my files inspected?  And if you could work with Freedom Scientific to stop this problem?

    I use exp with a scientific Jaws screen reader from freedom. Problem is every time I play a song especially not throughout, using media player 11, my computer hangs temporarily it is impossible to change the volume, stop the song etc.  In addition, when trying to close out Player multimedia 'alt f. 4' my jaws informs me that my audio files are to be inspected by saying something like, "cancellation" inspection files. then it counts down while I sit for 3 minutes.  JAWS stops talking, and as a blind person, I have no idea of what is happening, not able to operate the computer.  How can I stop these inspections?  I like to go through my music, having to play the file a few times for 10 seconds, becomes frustrating to go through all this, makes me want to unplug the internet connection.  Fortunately, it only happens the first 3 times I try to play, it's the case whenever I turn the computer the rest of the time I stayed alone to cross, to sort and or play my songs.

    How to share files uploaded in the creative cloud with other members of creative cloud?

    Should be easy.  Try this...

    1. In thumbnail view, click the small triangle (pointing down) in the lower right corner of the asset you want to share.
    2. On the blue icon toolbar that appears, click on the share icon (the third icon from the left, just to the right of the trash icon). The sharing dialog box should appear.
    3. In the sharing dialog box, enter the e-mail address of the person with whom you want to share assets, then click on the button send an email - it will receive an email with a link to your assets. OR
    4. You can also copy a link to the asset and paste that in your own e-mail client if you wish.  To do this, click on the link icon (looks like a 'chain' and to the right of the icon to email "envelope")-then click on the button, copy the link.

    Note that stock options are not available if your asset is set to 'Private' - you can control if an asset can be seen (or downloaded) by others by clicking the control Public/private (green or red icon "lock").

    You can also access the same controls hand, if you click on the file to see him score a point (you can do display thumbnails or list view); Click on the share icon near the top right of the window of the browser (to the right of the name of the asset).

    Hope that helps.
