“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.”

“…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.”
- USA Reviewer

What's New in Version 5.71
Everyone gets the new setup helper
Works like a charm.
I've been using this app on my iPad to view movies I have on my computer and connected storage device. Earbuds plugged in and sharp little screen is a convenient way for me to privately watch movies. Choosing "High Quality" and "Watch" works well for me. You can pause anytime without problems but going backward or searching around would only work if you choose "Download" (but that is a slower process).
You do have to add a helper to your computer that is a free download. Has never given me a problem on my MacBook Pro. Nice little added feature is sliding up or down on the screen to change volume.
Amazing app but it has an issue when, for some reason, a part of the video stops and the only way to continue is reopen it and skip that scene (about 2 mins of playback) fast before it stops again. Deleting and adding the video again on PC doesn't solve the problem - the pause will be in the same place.
You need this app!
We couldn't live without this app in our home. We use it daily. We stream videos off our media server to save memory on our devices or fill them up by downloading videos before a trip. It is regularly updated and well worth the money.
