    Is there any software to make file sharing easier than windows own file sharing? I have a Windows 8.1, Windows 7, and Windows Vista networked and I always have trouble seeing the Windows 8.1 computer. File sharing is setup correctly as they used to work, but now they don't. I've always had trouble with the Windows 8.1 computer being visible to others.

    Perhaps SHAREit. I haven't used it.

    Thanks for the replies, but I don't think those programs would work to play Video Files stored on my Windows 8 computer on the other two.

    Thanks I know about Plex but I see that more of a service. I guess I will have to fine a way to fix my windows sharing folders problem somehow.
