VLC is the video player of choice for most people, thanks to its refusal to be freaked out by pretty much any format, and it’s overall free niceness. There’s a VLC app available, but more excitingly, if you’re an iPad owner, there’s a VLC Streaming app. Install the app on your iPad and the software on your computer, and you’re pretty much done. The app will scan for any computers within the WiFi network with the software installed, and then give you access to any videos on your hard drive. You can search or navigate through the various folders, and once you’ve picked your video, you set it to process. Whilst the initial processing will take a couple of minutes, the best feature is that you can start watching it whilst it finishes the processing – there’s very little waiting around. It might not sound life changing, but the beauty of the iPad is the portability, and the chance to watch Dexter whilst you’re washing up, or lazing in bed, particularly if you’ve got a desk-tied computer, is brilliant. And free. Double brilliant.

VLC is definitely one of the top streaming apps out there, but I find it too much of a hassle to set up and maintain. After 5 hours of port forwarding, I only found myself having to fix it twice a week. Very frustrating! I have since gone with the Remote Access app from my employer DISH Network. I can stream DVR recordings and live TV remotely to my Android. Bets of all, it’s very easy to set up and still works seamlessly.
