  • No, you can't do that. Shortcuts from one share to another won't show up as "streamable" programs, and if a folder is set to allow streaming, everything in it (that the streaming client can accept anyway) is available to all streaming clients. Note that this means if you have streaming turned on for two folders, but have security set on one of them so that your daughter can't access the folder, she will still be able to stream from that folder.

  • Only the three default folders support streaming. From those folders, all supported files can be streamed without consideration for any security that may have been set for share access.

  • i must be saying it wrong,  sorry

    i can make a new folder and stream to it, no problems

    i have a thousand movies and tv shows

    i dont want my daughter to watch all of them some are rated r

    i made a folder with her name it works fine but everything in the folder is a duplicate of my original files in my folder

    just wondered if i could make a shortcut of some sort so i dont have two instances of these files(1 in mine, 1 in hers)

    hope this helps explain a bit more
