How to watch 3D movies with two PCs and two Rifts in **local** network?

Hi guys,
I bought the Rift S recently and have hooked up my old Rift to another PC. Now I wanna watch 3D movies with other people in the same network. My problem: using Bigscreen etc. routes the traffic (= image) over the internet so the other person only gets bad blocky compressed quality.
Is there any app like Bigscreen that uses the local area network to transmit the data so the other person actually gets the full quality?

    Try to contact Bigscreen. Are you using more powerful PC to be video source? Could you connect your PCs without WiFi? At least one of them. You could try to use 2 independent video players and start video at the same time on both PCs. :)

    I know this is from   a year ago, but Big Screen just did an update so that it has a built in movie player.  According to Big screen if both pcs have the same file they should play fine at the same time.  You may need to do one in your oculus login and one with a different one on your steam account though as I used a Rift CV1 and a Quest at the same time and we both spawned into the same body and it was weird/buggy.
