I'm working for a company with multiple buildings. On each building there are some smart TVs connected to the wired network. Is it possible to share HD videos from a computer to all the TVs?

What I have now

I have created a mini website to show the videos with javascript for the loop. Works well. But every day we need to open the browser to load the website. Can I load the browser on startup?

Some considerations

  • TV model: Sony kdl-70w855b. If necessary, we can change to LG with webOS.
  • Videos must be on a loop (no audio needed)
  • If possible, nobody has to touch the TVs. We have on/off timer.
  • We have DLNA.
  • It's not necessary to be in real-time.
  • I can set up windows/linux servers.
  • I can't set up a computer/player for every TV.
  • Chromecast allowed.
  • I have to use the wired network. No a/v wires allowed.

Can you recommend some software/service to do this?

I hope someone can help me. Thank you and sorry for my English :)

  • Sorry, wrong language. "bucle" is the spanish word for "loop". I have updated the question. – alekstrust Feb 9 '15 at 21:05
  • Windows has a Start up group on the start menu or HKEY_LOCAL_Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run and add an entry under there and the App specified will Auto launch – cybernard Sep 8 '15 at 3:46
  • Cybernard, thank you. But I was talking about the web browser starting up on the TV, not the server. – alekstrust Sep 8 '15 at 3:54

VLC has a wide number of streaming modes, including streaming to multiple destinations - you will need to read the chapters on streaming and experiment a little.

  • Cross Platform so you could use a dedicated linux machine as a server.
  • Free.
  • Can broadcast media (several methods).
  • Can be set to loop.
  • Lots of online help.
