I never leave reviews, but this app really does deserve some recognition.
The server runs easily on Windows 7 (haven't tested other operating systems) and it just works on my phone. I added my "C:" drive as a shared folder on my PC and I can just browse it and watch any video I see fit on my phone! I'm stunned! 720p playback worked fine, and I hear it'll convert video on the fly, although I've yet to try it. The server programme even has an option to use the graphics card for conversion - GET THIS APP!
I wanted something so I could stream films to iPhone and iPad to then mirror on Apple TV. This app took only 2 mins to setup on comp to direct folder where my saved videos are, which I can't run through iTunes. Playing films was flawless with no lag and I have tried a few video formats. Would strongly recommend due to its ease and effective streaming 5/5. Plus it's free with no ads either!
Best Streaming App
I don't normally write reviews but this app deserves some praise. Unlike the other more popular apps this one transcodes super quickly and on the fly, it doesn't require you to save converted videos and pretty much just acts as the gateway between your iPad/iPhone/aTV and your AVI/MKV library. Its the missing link between my complete media collection and my apple devices-highly recommend it!
