Solved Stream media from desktop PC to WiFi enabled TV/Blu-ray play

Specs: Windows 8.1, AMD FX-8150/16GB RAM
I have a "collection" of movies, music, pictures, and home videos stored on my Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external hard drive.. My PC is connected to my wireless router via a Ethernet Cable. My TV and Blu-Ray player are both WiFi enabled and connected to my home network wirelessly. Is it possible to stream my media from my PC to my TV and/or Blu-Ray player wirelessly without purchasing any extra equipment or parts or cables? The media I want to stream is in various formats; AVI, Matroska, MP4, MP3, AVCHD video, MDX, and probably a couple others. My BD player is a Sony BDP-S590 and my TV is a Vizio E322VL. These media formats will all play on my TV when copied to a flash drive which in turns gets plugged into my BD Player. I would rather be able to stream to my TV or BD Player. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks All!

✔ Best Answer
Audio/Visual equipment is a little out of my territory, but as a computer person, I understand your dilemma.

In my opinion, purchasing hardware (Wired or Wireless) to display your computer screen on your TV would be the easiest solution. However you can set your computer up as a DLNA server which would allow you to stream pictures, video and music to any other DLNA compatible device on your network. According to Sony's website your Blu-Ray player is a compatible DLNA device. See the link below for instructions on this:

A third option may be connecting your External Seagate Hard Drive to your Blu-Ray player. It sounds like it will play the contents of a flash drive, maybe it will recognize the External Hard drive and allow you to play it?

Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you're talking about.
