Default [Q] Stream Movies Between 2 Nexus 7's

I'm taking a road trip with 2 kids and want to use their Nexus 7's to share the screen between the 2 devices watching the same movie on each device. Here's the equipment I have available:

Seagate Wireless HD
Lenovo PC
1 Nexus 7 (2012)
1 Nexus 7 (2013)
VZW Jetpack w/ unlimited data
iPad4

What I was thinking is to go from the HD->PC->USB->OTG->Nexus. Does anyone know if I can stream video and audio from a PC via USB/OTG to 2 Nexus 7's at the same time via a USB Y cable from the PC? And if so what app should I use?

I would just attach them all to my VZW hotspot with something like Splahtop but I don't know if I'll have internet the entire way.

Sorry if this is confusing, it all makes sense to me...

Use allcast along with allcast receiver and then use MX player on the device that's sending the file. Not the most elegant solution but it should work.

And if you want to have the file on a PC instead of on one of the nexus 7's create a DLNA server on your PC using Divx then stream it to the 7's using the imediashare app.

What if I'm in an area with no service,, or very slow speeds? We are driving from Denver through to UT and AZ and I doubt I'll have cellular coverage the entire way.

You wont 't need internet access if you set up this before hand, all you'll need is a WiFi hotspot for all the devices to be connected too. As its streaming it locally and not through the internet.

Yea but they'd need headphones. Because I doubt you can start them at the same time.

So the WiFi hotspot from the Seagate HD will be enough to allow me to stream to 2 tablets?

I know there are lots of products out there but I'm having trouble with the mirroring aspect to 2 tablets. I really do need them to be in sync with one another.
