Sharing Your Library over the Internet
Sharing Your Library over the Internet
New to Windows 8 is the ability to access your library at home over the Internet.
Known as Internet Home Media Access, it is very helpful when you want to
listen to a song or play a video clip from your home library when away from
home. Using a Windows Live ID, you can link Windows Media Player on your
laptop to Windows Media Player on your desktop at home. The process of
setting everything up is rather complex:
1. Start Windows Media Player if it is not already started. Then click Stream
on the menu bar and Allow Internet Access To Home Media.
2. Select Allow Internet Access To Home Media on the confirmation screen
as shown in Figure 11-7.
3. Internet Home Media Access is set up as shown in Figure 11-8.

You have finished configuring your computer to share its library. Now you
need to set up your laptop, tablet, or another home device to access your home
l i br a r y.
If you ever want to disable Internet access to home media, just click Stream
on the menu bar and select Allow Internet Access To Home Media. Then click
Do Not Allow Internet Access To Home Media.
