This will help you alot.
That's a good method. I guess consider mine a more perminant solution. Set it up and forget about it. The adhoc method above would be easier. You would have to connect and disconnect your VPN when you wanted to watch something. If you wanted to do something else on your laptop while watching, your computer would remain connected through the VPN.
Consider flashing your extra router with DD-WRT. It's very usefull, not just for OpenVPN. You can turn any supported router into a bridge or repeater. I use my DD-WRT linksys as a repeater for direct connection to my XBox that's across the house from modem and main router.
