“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.”

“….This sucker can stream off the pc and plays virtually anything you throw at it. Download it now!”

Ratings and Reviews
Great when it works
There was an update last week, since the update which was the only change app no longer works. On remote computers all firewalls are off and even when they are not all tests pass however cannot connect to remote computers
Great app but not working since update
One of my favorite apps on my iPad. Allows me to access my entire library. Since I assume the last update however, my iPad can't find my computer. Not sure what is up.
Works great, best interface and ease of use
No it's not affiliated with VLC, but not as confusing as others tend to rate it as. Run the helper app on the host computer and your off, set your folder for conversion to ample size for more than one video stream if need. It also will all you to choose other network shares from within the host, just know your speed will be based from network transfer and recoding, as well as playing back transfer speed.
Other apps charged more, didn't work, or allowed only a view of locked amount view time.
Only thing I would add is 3G connection and allow stream over Internet , if it does, than I have not set up for that yet
