Just a quick video i made for my friends channel. It's not as good as i'd like it to be but it does the job. Sorry but i couldn't find a good mic and my voice sounded crap recording from my phone So i had to use captions instead...
Thanks - If you don;t want to use Hamachil [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj9PTRhWaes[/video] + Please remember to watch the Non Hamachi video if you would like to install the server without having to have Hamachi or without your friends needing to install Hamachi. The down side is most houses only have Dyanmic Ip's so every couple of days your IP changes which you will need to tell your friend. Not to mention you need to Port forward which some parents don't allow.
This video is a tutorial on how to setup a multiplayer Minecraft server for you and your friends. This tutorial is shorter then others as i have compiled most of the essential things into one video which should fix most problems.
