    Sharing Movies between Mac's
    What are the best ways to share movies (home made / iMovie / iDVD) between 2 Mac's ? My father edits on his iMac and wants to share to his mac Mini that is connected to his TV......I know he can do something similar with Apple TV but how can he best do it without ?

    Assuming you dads Macs see each other over a network...

    I believe the two computers should see each other. Open the Finder to see if one sees the other. If so, click on the computer name and see if you can log onto the other one and browse the files on it. You might have to go into preferences on that machine and in the Sharing tab turn on File Sharing.

    Another way would be to import a movie file into iTunes on the iMac. Set iTunes on that Mac to share via the Sharing tab in that iTunes Preferences window. And then on the Mac mini, open iTunes and browse the shared iTunes that should show up from the iMac. This is likely the easier solution to try.
