There are basically 2 options: using a MySQL database (which requires MySQL server) and UPnP (DLNA).

The 'best' way for non-technical people is to try the UPnP method first.
The 'best' way for others is MySQL in my opinion.

You can store complete TMM folder on a network drive and start it from there.
Should be possible, when both access you movies in same way
But you can only connect with one application to the database at the same time, not parallel.

Wanna help translate TMM ?

well, theoretically yes - but since we store the paths to the media files inside the database, that won't work with Windows <-> OSX
