I've just successfully installed Win7 onto an older but servicable PC in order to use it as a streaming media player in another room. Problem is that although it can see all of the shared files, folders and drives on my main machine it keeps telling me I don't have the correct permissions whenever I click on them - but permissions are set to 'Everyone' and another machine (a netbook) I do the same thing with can see and play everything perfectly... can anyone offer any help or suggestions please, I'm at my wit's end! Thanks in advance!

I work for a municipality that televises its public meetings on a government access cable channel -- I need help finding a way to make these cablecasts available to the public online. Regular video hosting services I've looked at don't seem to be quite what we're looking for. [more inside]
