How to stream movies over a network via Apple’s Front Row

“In ‘My multimedia Mac mini,’ I detailed the trial I had attempting to stream full-length movies from my Power Mac G5 to an Intel Mac mini via Front Row. Despite creating the fastest network possible as well as providing Front Row with the slimmest movies possible, it and iTunes refused to play them unless I created an alias of the original movie, mounted the network volume where that movie resided, and copied the alias to the miniís Movies folder,” Christopher Breen reports for Macworld.

“Reader Scott Nichol got in touch and revealed the secret to successfully playing these movies via Front Row. That secret is that movies must have their streaming option enabled.
