    Is there any other way like networking? Instead of orb.

    Yes I think. I have always had problems understanding how to network. One system is Windows XP Pro. It have the movies. And the second system is Vista Ultimate 64.

    If they are connected to the same router, then they are on the same network

    just have them on the same network and share the folder with the movies. Then you can play thm off of any of the pc's.

    Re: How can I stream a movie from one computer to another?

    Xp has the movies and I want to view them on the Vista machine but won't let me. If I have a movie on the Vista machine Xp machine can view it. How do I change that order?

    are they part of the same workgroup? Is file sharing turned on on both PC's?

    Airbrushkid: The name of the app is VideoLan. Doesn't that that suggest you might be missing something?

    It's not going to work. When you cannot access another computer on a network. And if I could access that computer then any of the video players I have would work.
