As computers become commoditized, we can afford to run our own server farm of some kind. For example, we can have a video conversion farm--several computers processing different videos at the same time. I like to access my server farm computers with Remote Desktop while I process photos comfortably at my main computer desk.
The biggest problem, though, is that Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, one of my favorite converters wouldn't run over Remote Desktop. If you try it, you'll get the "Windows Movie Maker cannot be used with Remote Desktop Connection or Terminal Services." What a surprise. And a real hinder to a video processing server farm idea.
But have no fear, because there is a way around this problem. And that is to use a VNC connection. VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. Lots of big words, but it basically allows you to control another computer over the network, which is pretty much what Remote Desktop does. If you are on Windows, you can download UltraVNC, install the server on the computer you want to control and install the viewer on the computer you want to control with. Linux normally comes with VNC viewer installed.
Once you have your Windows server farm computer running under a VNC server, running Windows Movie Maker is no problem at all. Windows Movie Maker will happily process all of your videos this way. And you can run as many Windows Movie Maker copies as the amount of Windows computers you have.
