Default [Q] Is it possible to stream movies from my laptop to my nexus 5?

I have the Acer Aspire V5-431 series laptop.

It has bluetooth but for some reason I can not connect mt Jabra Rox Wireless headset to it.
I figure if I can stream it to my N5 while its connect to my jabra rox I can listen to the audio while watching the video on my laptop. Im in a public area and dont want to make it noisey for everyone around me...

Or why not just run xbmc on your nexus 5 and shazam all the movies and TV shows you'll ever need. Gotham beta running great on mine.

How about plex? I mean though its not free, if possible you could test plex with someone else's laptop to use the free Windows app to see if it works for you.

The obvious solution is connecting the jabra to the laptop. Resolving that issue is where you should focus, not some crazy work around.

Check other BT audio can connect to the PC and then troubleshoot from there.
