Sharing a DVD Drive so the whole school can watch a single DVD
Right then, I was asked if I could possibly rip a DVD and put it on the network for people to view in our upcoming Eid day activities at the school. Obviously, I pointed out that this was HIGHLY illegal and I wasn't going to do it (change of media let alone standard copyright stuff).
Anyway, I've been thinking about this and I wondered if anyone had thoughts about sharing a DVD drive, so I pop the DVD into a machine hooked up the network, share that drive out to users so they can then view the DVD on their machine around the school. This obviously doesn't get effected by the change of media things, and technically as it's being played from the DVD it shouldn't effect anything else that I can think of, but I thought I would run it past you guys to see if anyone has any thoughts / other suggestions.
The DVD in question is Aladdin by the way. So I'm just trying to find a solution instead of being a no man.
