    why does Netflix only stream certain movies and tv shows?
    I was really excited at the idea of streaming movies and TV shows until i saw how limited the selection is. Almost everything i wanted to watch was DVD only. Why does Netflix do this? Wouldn't it be a lot more effective to charge a little extra for the plan and upload all of them? Will there ever be a time when everything on Netflix will be streamable?

    • ANSWER:
      Netflix does this, probably because, they dont want to overload their servers. For example, a recent movie may be way too much in demand, and their current servers and technology may be inefficient to handle heavy number of requests. I guess, they are still young as a company, in terms of revenue. If they earn a lot, they can have many more servers, and related technology. There by, allowing streaming to even movies on high demand.
      There could be other reasons. But this one strikes to me.
      Regarding future,
      I hope so. If people who think like you and me exist more, obviously there will be more demand and where there is demand, there is a better product with better technology! But, it might take a least a couple of years, according to me.

    How can I stream movies from my laptop to my TV?
    I have a Dell Inspirion and I want to stream movies to my Samsung TV. Is this possible?

    • ANSWER:
      There are two ways to do this.

      The first is to connect the laptop directly to the TV. Most laptops have some sort of TV-out port on them. You'll have to look in your manual to determine what your laptop supports. Connect the laptop to your TV with the appropriate cable. You'll also need to get an audio cable that has a headphone jack on one end, and the larger red/white RCA jacks on the other. You can get this at most places that sell TV or audio accessories, or at Radio Shack. Check your manual to see how to enable the TV output. Some laptops require you to open the video properties page and make the TV your primary monitor. You'll then have your laptop displaying on your TV, and the sound should be coming out of your TV as well. (You can also connect the audio cable to your stereo if you want as well.)

      The other way is streaming, which is entirely different. In this case, your laptop will be sending the movie's picture and audio over your home network to a device connected to your TV called a set-top box. The set-top box allows you to use a remote to browse your files on your laptop and choose what to play. Your laptop doesn't even need to be in the same room.

      For streaming, you'll need a network, a set-top box connected to your TV, and your laptop will need to be running a Media Server program. If you already have a router at home that your laptop is connected to for internet access, you're most of the way there. Most set-top boxes can use the server included with Windows Media Player.

      For a set-top box, some newer blu-ray players can access a media server. The Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 also have this feature. So if you have one of these already, you're almost set. Otherwise you'll need to buy one. There are a lot of different ones out there but the one I've heard good things about is from Popcorn Hour ( It can support a lot of different formats, and has a lot of flexibility in how you set it up.

      Personally, I don't like Windows Media Player's media server very much. Instead I use the one from TVersity ( which stream video, music, photos like any other media server, but can also stream video from YouTube, and Hulu.

    can plus do you need high speed internet to wach tv or movies from netflix on your computer ? please answer thanks 😀

    • ANSWER:
      You can also buy a roku box for around 0

      Or a blu ray player that connects to the internet. Make sure the blu ray has the netflix feature. It should have that plus youtube, pandora radio, amazon and blockbuster movies.

      Netflix is the cheapest way to go. Regular service is .53 and blu ray service is .65 a month plus you get one dvd in the mail at a time and you can stream as many movies as you want.

      Not all movies will stream, but you can get the ones that don't in the mail.

    What's the best processor for streaming to a TV?
    I want to stream movies and TV shows to my TV via HDMI. What is the best processor fr the job? And what graphics card and RAM space should it have?

    • ANSWER:
      Are you familiar with a WDTV Live? They work well, and play (virtually) all common file formats directly.

      It's easy. You connect the WDTV Live to your computer using Ethernet,* then, after you configure file sharing, the WDTV Live reads media files stored on your computer hard drive. (*WDTV Live has built-in wireless, but works best when hard-wired to an Ethernet connection, or attached USB drive.)

      For it's a no-brainer. You don't need to custom build a PC just to play media files on your TV.

      If your specific goal is to use a PC as a media player, then you might want to look up what the requirements are to make XBMC run well,

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on your tv and computer. Assuming it is a HD tv (one with a HDMI input). ATI has video cards that output HDMI, as well as many laptops. There are other connection options but that should be the one with the fewest problems.

      Storing DVD's on your HD is not a straight forward process as they are normally copy protected.

    How do i restrick the amount of internet used on a computer?
    My step sisters are at our house for the next month and they go an lock themselves in their room and stream movies and TV shows on their laptops. This makes the rest of the houses internet incredibly slow. Am i able to restrict the amount of internet they can use at a given time? i dont want to block them off, but make it so that if they try and watch a movie, it will take at least a whole day to download it?

    • ANSWER:
      It's pretty easy, depending on the router you have.

      Look up "QoS" or Quality of Service settings for your particular router.
      You can regulate speed of connections based on
      -- which machine ( which mac address or IP address)
      -- what protocol ( streaming protocols look a whole lot different than torrents, and they both look different than email)

      again - it depends on your home router. Get the admin controls, and the instructions.. then have at it.
      Excellent use of technology!

    Why are netflix streaming movies so bad?
    Please excuse my language when I say this, but why are netflix streaming movies such crap? They have some decent tv show options and SOME good movies for their streaming option, but the VAST majority of them are pretty bad or unheard of and still bad.

    What is with this? Why even bother offering all these useless selections?


    • ANSWER:
      Because they have to pay for streaming rights, and the studios and distributors charge a premium for streaming new movies, if they even offer the rights at all. They prefer selling discs, not letting people stream. Netflix would have to quadruple their prices or even more to get new movies available for streaming. The fact that other vendors like Amazon, iTunes and Hulu have jumped in and started a bidding war has made the prices for streaming rights even higher. Eventually the prices will drop and the selection will improve, but that's probably still several years away.

    How can I watch films from my laptop on my TV?
    Is there a cable to plug into my laptop and TV so I can watch my streamed movies on the TV screen instead of my laptop screen?

    I used to be able to do it with my old mobile phone, it plugged into the audio jack and then red, yellow, and white plugs into the TV.

    I have a Sony Vaio notebook, and a Goodmans TV, if that's any help.
    I want to know what TYPE OF CABLE, not where to get it.

    • ANSWER:
      Well I'm happy to inform you technology has improved from using the old red, white, and yellow jacks.
      Nowadays most computers and TV's come with an HDMI port. If you get an HDMI cable you will be able to share High Definition video and audio from the computer.
      But what if you dont have fancy technology?
      Well most semi-old computers and TV's have an S-video port.
      You can simply use an S-Video cable to share Standard Definition video with the TV... But you need a special cable with a 3.5mm "headphone" jack on one end and the red and white audio jacks on the other end to supply the TV with audio.

      But what if I don't have either of those?!?
      Don't worry there is one last option. I have NEVER seen a laptop without an analog monitor output jack. This is the big blue port on the back (usually near where the power cord plugs into the PC). Most half-decent TV's have an analog monitor input jack (looks just like the one on your laptop). This will (just like S-Video) only share video. You still need the audio cable described above to supply sound to the TV.

      Depending on the TV and laptop you may or may not have some of these ports.
      Your best bet is using the Analog Monitor Output. That is the most common but if you have HDMI, use it. It's HD and much easier to set up and use (you only need one cable).
      Hope this helps!

    • ANSWER:
      Not every movie and TV show is available for Instant Streaming. Netflix has to buy the rights to stream the movies and TV shows they have and can't just play everything. They could be sued for copyright infringement and other things if they did.

    This computer is *only* being used for tv streaming (web based) and movies/tv shows on HD it will not be used for any gaming, or disc based movies.

    Intel E3200 Cache 1mb processor 2.4ghz dual core
    Intel E1200 Cache 512 processor 1.4ghz dual core

    What do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      How much of a price difference is there?

      The performance difference for streaming TV shows wouldn't even be noticeable... Are both systems equipped with the same video adapter? That would have a greater impact than the CPU choice. I'd go with the E1200 unless they're close in price, in which case it makes sense to get the E3200 for just a few bucks more.

    How much can online gaming slow down my internet connection?
    When im just browsing the web i speed test between 20-25 mb's (this on my desktop and the connection is wireless). When my wife is on the laptop (also wireless), playing games like jewel quest I am speed testing at around 14-16 mb's. Still doesnt seem too bad, but when I am streaming movies off my apple tv the stream slows down when she gets starts playing her games. Is there anything I can do to fix that without upgrading my internet?

    • ANSWER:
      Nope, while streaming videos any other usage will cause delays or lag on most networks, especially if both are running wireless. Wireless has it's own issues with sharing, and has more lag in general compared to wired, even at high speeds.
      Try your end wired instead, and then compare performance, you will see what the difference is (assuming streaming source is feeding you at high speeds, and is not the source of lag).
