This is a step by step tutorial on how to watch movies on your computer without transferring them to your PlayStation and when.
A similar WUAKI.TV or local NETFLIX on your computer.
We will remove all in steps, so you fences performing checks does not operate.
The first is to have both devices on the same network, wireless or cable.
2º WEB SERVER
Once we are on the same network, we will install a web server on your computer.There are many solutions but it’s best to find a XAMPP for our platform. Either Linux, Windows or Mac, compatibility is assured.ApafreFirends.org people has done a great job with XAMPP package that supports all platforms.
Basically XAMPP means that it is a group of servers, X was by Linux, but later became multi platform, is Apache web server using the solution, M Mysql, although currently using MariaDB, P PERL and the last P PHP.
This package creates a complete installation of all these programs and set to work together.
Once installed, we could start programs, in this case we only need APACHE.
Let’s option MANAGE SERVERS
Here we select the APACHE WEB SERVER and press START
Always from the same computer on which you installed the server.
3º ACCESS FROM OUTSIDE
We verified that we have access from anywhere, with another computer or mobile phone connected to the same network, try to access the IP address of the computer where you installed the server, for example IP 192.168.0.11, we put on the web browser as follows address
If all went well, we will see the same page as in the previous image, otherwise, we modify the firewall settings of your computer to allow access to port 80 from outside or in the service of the Apache server. This is done automatically when you start Windows Server, wondering if we permit access to that service.
4º FIND APACHE home directory.
On the computer where the web server we have installed, look for the basis of our APACHE directory, use the htdocs directory which can be in different places depending on the operating system.LINUX is located in / var / wwwWINDOWS is in My Documents / wwwMAC OSX is located inside the XAMPP installation in a directory / htdocsWhen we find the base directory, we delete or change any files directory, in my case, for example I have moved all files to another folder, so I do not lose access example brings XAMPP.
In my case I created the original XAMPP folder where you‘ve moved the entire contents, and then I created a file index.php to test the change.
Index.php just have these lines to confirm that I am in the right place and there is nothing left of the examples of XAMPP
In this case, Internet Explorer will see the following.
Now we know that the directory is correct and we have control.
5º CREATION VIDEO SERVER
In this case create a server with support for HTML5 video, and post files in a directory accessible by the web server, and we could see our movies.
If you want you can download my design HTML5 VIDEO, paying a token contribution to continue developing.
BUY contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The films must be encoded in x264, no matter the end, although it is better be MP4, because some browsers do not endure other, even while they are encoded X264 is sufficient.
File names must have a unique format. The name of the movie of the year separated by an underscore. For example:
Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb_2014.mp4
The actual name can be obtained from the search engine including HTML5VIDEO program, which will indicate if the film is, and thus ensure that the original cover art and all details will be correct.
These video files are placed in the VIDEO directory HTML5VIDEO our application.
The system will automatically scan the cover and movie details. For remove the film from the directory, the system automatically remove everything about this film.
6º TESTING ALL LOCALLY
Once you have the server installed, running our HTML5VIDEO design, we can access locally and get the following result.
The program has been designed based on information obtained from www.omdbapi.com from which we get the covers and information from each of the films.
And by clicking on any of the covers, we collect your information and a link to the video.
If we want to see the movie in full screen, we click on the symbol to the right of volume control.
7º TESTING FROM ALL PlayStation 4 browser.
These are screenshots Screen PlayStation 4.
Let the WEB BROWSER
and in the address bar we put the direction of your Apache server.
Click on any of the covers and access the details and link Video.
Click on the triangle representing the play and begin to see the film.
We can then access the full screen, with the symbol of the four arrows out.
The photos do not do it justice, and my not being LED TV, it is complicated to take good pictures.
I leave a video on Youtube to see fluency.
