Streaming media from your personal collection is a great way to enjoy your music, movies, and more while you’re away from home. Do you stream your media?

Media streaming is all over the news lately as Congress grapples with what it means to stream content and how streaming affects copyright holders. While the current debate doesn’t directly concern people who stream from private collections for personal use we hardly have to tell you how quickly the movie and recording industries like to bend new laws to their benefit.

All of this made us curious. How many of our readers are actively streaming content for personal use? Do you stream music to your phone? Video to your laptop? Sound off in the comments with the how and why of your streaming arrangement. What kinks did you have to iron out? What’s the best part about your streaming setup?

Make sure to check back on Friday for our What You Said roundup to see how your fellow readers have their streaming systems configured.
