“Can these guys do no wrong? Seriously, if only other app devs knew how to make apps as well as these guys, the world would be a better place. Or at least my device would be less buggy. I was just watching a Full HD copy of Avatar Extended Edition being streamed from my PC on my iPod Touch 2nd Generation and it looked and played amazingly.”
- UK Reviewer

“…it's as good as having the original VLC player on your iOS device…”

“…Setup is a snap and literally takes 2 seconds. You can browse through all your movies from your device and click any one to start playing. It even works if you have the movies stored on a USB drive connected to the host computer.”
-The Times of India

“Took me seconds to setup to stream from a secondary drive in my home office. Going straight out to get a cable for my TV.”

Good media player, not great for streaming

This is ok, the controls are very good and it plays videos well. The trouble is getting them from your computer to the phone / iPad. It actually wants to convert everything, you can't just add a directory for it to play movies from, you have to add a movie / clip for it to convert each time you want to play. It takes a long time too.. If it just streamed like airplayit and video safe 2 do, It would be full marks but as it takes so long to convert, and I'm guessing it copies the conversion to a directory on your hard drive (duplicating what it should just be able to stream) I feel it's not much use really. You can only skip through the video once it's buffered completely to your phone too.. So basically, if you load your movie up and want to skip straight to the action you're out of luck.

Fantastic App with minor annoyances.

More often than not it works fantastically and the playback quality and range of compatibility is excellent.

Features for quickly accessing media throughout your library and a simple and intuitive design make it easy to use and jump straight in.

The issues I've found are mostly larger files getting stuck whilst buffering which is resolved with a simple 'stop & play' and also the app duplicating files when converting them which again requires simply deleting the duplicate.

I've tried several other media apps available and this is by far the best if you can put up with the occasional blip.

Excellent App 1 small gripe.

Revolutionised my bed time activity. I now can watch my tv shows and films in bed. A shame that it only seems to handle video formats as I would love to be able to stream the rest of my media. I already used VLC Player and knew it to be good but this streamer has taken it to a new level for me.
