Software to stream from PC to TV?

Hello - I'm a novice with computing who's seeking wisdom from his betters.
I recently purchased a Philips flatscreen TV (model #40PFL4706). The TV is internet enabled, with both built-in apps (like Netflix) and the ability to let me stream video or photos directly from my PC. The problem is that the software that allows the PC-to-TV streaming (MediaConnect) overloads my PC's processor. This probably isn't surprising; apparently MediaConnect is a hefty program, and my PC is a pretty basic machine. I'm wondering if there is any other way to stream video from my PC to my TV? Particularly, is there another program that will facilitate this (esp. any freeware)? Many thanks.
