    Playing video files from shared folders without previously downloading them.

    Hi all

    When I try to play a video from a shared folder in the local network, can I play it without downloading it to my computer before? Thanks

    Of course, just mount the share. It will be treated just like any directory on your hard drive.

    In general:
    mount -t cifs //remote machine/share /destination directory
    mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt/serverfiles
    man mount
    ...for more.
