    Hey guys.

    I travel alot and I would like to be able to have easy access to my movies even when Im not on my own wifi.

    Right now Im using XBMC and SMB Shares while Im at home but how can I make this work when Im outside my own network?

    Im willing to use another app then XBMC if that is easier but I would prefer XBMC. If I haveto use another app its important that it supports most formats since I dont want to convert 8+ TB of material.

    Im using a Jailbroken iPad 2.

    Read this thread, it's a good introduction to what NAS is and how you can use it. One of the uses IS streaming video from your NAS device to your iPad, which can be anywhere in the world with an Internet connection to your NAS device. What is NAS and what can it do for you?

    Thanks but thats doesnt really help me at all since I am well aware of what a NAS is and I dont have one.

    I was simply wondering if anyone could point me to a guide as to how I would set it up so I could access the videofiles on my computer when Im outside the network. My computer is always on and I therefore see no reason to purchase a NAS when there should be a simple way of doing it with just a PC and a router.

    I don't know, because I've never used it myself. I saw it and thought it might be useful to you. You could try contacting the company to ask them.
