I'd like to download movie torrents from my Ubuntu server as its download speed is much higher than at home. However, it is pretty pointless if I then have to download the movie from my server to my laptop so I thought a good compromise would be to stream the movies. What is the easiest way to do so? My only requirements are that everything on the server side should be done through the command line (ssh) and if possible, minimal dependencies. My media player is VLC but I wouldn't mind using a web browser to watch the videos.
