What Are Servers and Clients?

Here are some very basic definitions:
  • "A server is primarily a program that runs on a machine, providing a particular and specific service to other machines connected to the machine on which it is found."
  • "Client software receives data or instructions from a remote program called a server."

For the purposes of My Movies, the Server will be your Main Database - your My Movies Server. This Main Database keeps track of where all your movies are stored on your hard-drives, no matter where they are located. Any other computers that access the My Movies Server so that they can watch movies are called Clients.
