Description of wmprph.exe from Microsoft
By sharing your media, you can do all of these things on your private network. (Media sharing does not allow you to share files outside of your network, however. For example, you cannot use media sharing to download music from the Internet or to stream video on a website.) Media sharing is supported on wired and wireless private networks (such as those typically available in homes) but it is not supported on public networks (such as those available in coffee shops, airports, and libraries).
