    Can Chromebooks stream video over WiFi?

    I would love a Chromebook but all the time I'm not using Chrome I am streaming video over my WiFi. Is this possible using a Chromebook?

    Thanks.

    I stream my videos all the time to my chromebook, but unfortunately it won't work at this point via standard network shares. (I am assuming you are referring to streaming video files that are located on a computer and not youtube/hulu/netflix/etc.) There are 2 software options (both work)
    1. Orb.com sign up for an account (it's free) you will need to install the software on a PC (easiest if it's the pc that stores the files). It also makes it easy to watch live TV if you have a tv tuner or a Hava. This method will work for watching your videos anywhere you have an internet connection w/o port forwarding on a router.
    2. Tversity - the free version does have limitations but does work. You will need to port forward if you are off of your LAN. Like orb you will need to install software on your pc that is storing the videos.

    Thanks for the response, all of my videos are on a networked hard drive so I wont be able to install any software to it.
    I was really hoping that there would be a feature built in that didn't require any software. What a shame, I really wanted a Chromebook!

    There are networked Hard Drives, like the Zyxel NSA-310 (1 Disk) or NSA-320 (2 Disks). This device does deliver a Web-Interface for viewing videos and hearing music - and there are additionally software-packages like PHP+MySQL installable Seems to be a great companion for the chromebook.
