post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I've been trying every app and nothing connects to my pc. I've changed around the http\lua\.host files, and follow everything anything said.

Any ideas?

Why not just install VLC on your Nexus? That's what I did with mine. No streaming required, though you can open files from a network share using your phone through most decent 3rd party file browsers (I like Astro, but take your pick there). I've been using VLC for Android since early alpha and it's simply great assuming your cpu has the floating-point "neon" flag, which the Nexus does (hint: Tegra 2 devices don't run uncompressed video very well).

Have you checked to make sure your phone can browse to a simple SMB (windows file sharing) share? Could just be your router has "wireless isolation" or some other restrictive setting enabled.

Sure, I've been there. Just install VLC (assuming you have room to do so) and then open the file you want to watch from a network share. It will "stream" just like it would when you open a shared file from a different computer on your network.

I'm clearly not great at this, lol. I got stuck when i got to the network URL for both my phone and PC. =\

As a guess, i tried putting in my own IP.

Do you have root on your phone? If so there is a nifty application called cifs manager that will allow you to browse windows shares (mount them) so you can view files and whatnot. Your kernel will need cifs support.

The bloke in the video says it does not work on ICS

Edit:

Im going to assume that is fixed due to how old the video is.
