  1. This is exactly what I want to do. I want to be able to pause, catch up and rewind the video.
  2. Ok, so VLC streaming it is. You mentioned that the first thing I had to do was create a socket for the server/client to send and receive data. Where do I start?
  3. What about the way windows shares folders over LAN? I've played videos over my LAN before on a shared folder with VLC. Is there something about that process that could be relevant to this project?
  4. So, SQLlite is literally just a self contained database file without any of the extra features and complexity of MSSQL? Awesome. I would have to rebuild the database file and reconnect in visual studio, but that won't take long. So now the question is, how do I take that database and use it to make a server out of it? I want to allows clients to connect to that database, display it and update the picture box with the video poster every time a selection is changed. I then want the client to be able to request the files located on the server and play them using the local default media player (in
  5. I understand this will be a fairly complicated project, but I'm willing to try and learn and I have my professor to help me iron out the bugs. I just need to be pointed in the right direction as my coding class doesn't cover anything networking in vb.net. The hardest thing we've done is databases and I know how to connect local databases, create insert, delete, update statements etc. So since coding the server application with sockets will allow me to stream the video file, I'm gonna go with that. I've been trying to look up how to host a database file locally and came up with nothing asi
  6. My apologies. How do I create a server and how do I create a client application that will connect to the server and send requests to view the database file and open the media files?
  7. I'm trying to build a sort of Plex media server knock off for a class project. I don't intend to copy any of the big features of plex like matching media data or having its own built in media player. I just want to build a server application that hosts a database list and a bunch of media files and a client application that will connect to the server, display the hosted database file and update a picture box whenever a data grid view selection is changed. Attached is some of the code I wrote along with a screenshot of the project to get an idea of what I want to do over the network. Public
  8. I have a couple of Linksys velop nodes set up in my house as well as the house next door. I've been trying to get a few of them hardwired in my spare time to help improve the signal. I also have a desktop that's hardwired to the parent node through a pair of switches. See the attached picture for more details. My question is, when I connect that one child node to the main switch connected directly to the parent, why does the app then tell me that my desktop is connected to said child node. It also gives me no indication of whether the child node is using ethernet for backhaul. Linksys claims t
  9. Ahhh, ok. That makes perfect sense. Seems like Windows is putting the drive to sleep way too often, then.
  10. I have a western digital black 6TB and I'm just wondering if it's dying. I've noticed a significant increase in response time recently. I understand it's a mechanical drive and it takes longer to load data from the drive than an SSD, but I'm not sure windows explorer is supposed to be freezing when I click to open it. Or when I try to download something and it takes a while for the window to show up if the last folder I used was on the hard drive. The same is not true for my SSD though. I ran a smart status check in command line, and windows says the drive is healthy. I'm currently running an
  11. The lone Netgear router wouldn't work in access point mode. I followed all the steps, but I guess the velop doesn't let you add access points. It's definitely my brother's problem now. All he has to do is buy another Velop node if he wants a single wifi network covering both houses.
  12. I couldn't configure the Velop in AP mode, but I was able to find an option to disable the radios on the Spectrum router. What I'll do know is talk to my brother about getting these Velop nodes hardwired to hopefully improve speed and stability and I'll see what I can do about the Netgear router in house 2.
  13. I only have two wifi networks running in my house right now, the Linsys mesh network and the Netgear one right next door. And the Spectrum router isn't configured as an access point. Edit: scratch that. I was completely wrong. It's running two separate networks that I just now found out about. Is there any way to disable them?
  14. The RAC2V1K isn't running as a router. As for the Netgear router in house 1, would it be easier and simpler if I just purchased another Velop node and hardwired it to the Spectrum RAC2V1K back in house 1?
  15. In house 1, the red dot represents an Aris TM1602 and a Spectrum RAC2V1K which did turned out to be a router with a built in switch. The Aris modem is provided by Spectrum. Also in house 1, the green dots represent mesh points for the Velop system. As for house number 2, the single green dot represents a Netgear AC 1450
