“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.”

Ratings and Reviews
Works great with a few misgivings.
Okay , this app is great, 5 stars for that. Integration with your network is simple and quick. Converting files is not. On the fly one by one conversion works great unless you have a HEVC also known as x265 codec file. It chokes on them. What is HEVC/x265?? It’s the latest video codec that has better resolution at a much, much smaller video file than the standard x264. So all the files I have in x265 now must be converted to x264 by another app, creating a second copy of the file, also much larger, so I can stream with this app. Bummer. I hope a solution is close ‘cause otherwise, I really like this app!
This is a wonderful little app. I can walk anywhere in the house with my iPad while watching a movie. The only problem I have with this app is that it loses wifi contact once in a while and I have to shut my computer down and restart to get the app back online. It doesn't happen very often but when it does happen it is annoying. Also I can’t find anywhere but I can add subtitles , I have a few movies that I need subtitles floor . I would give this app four and a half stars, out of five stars.
Still the best, if sometimes flawed
This is the best streaming app in terms of functionality I’ve found on iPhone. GoodPlayer, “real” VLC, etc have interesting features and potentially easier setup but get bogged down with weird buffering problems, or bizarre interface choices. VLC streamer works way more often than others and it has great interface customization
Search can be a bit iffy if your library gets large, but the tagging system is solid.
Would love to see search work with larger libraries (or for the keyboard to dismiss reliably) but again it’s a trivial problem.
The need to preprocess videos is a small price for them to reliably work on the phone and the access control via a simple password is helpful.
Bottom line: it works!
