    Stream videos from media server?

    Has anyone succeeded or even tried to have the S7 stream videos from another computer/storage on the local network?

    I have a computer in my home office which is always on, and it's my "home server" for music, videos, pictures, documents, and more.
    It's running Ubuntu Server 10.10, and is accessible as an NFS (Network File System).
    I have two different Popcorn Media Players who both stream videos from the media server, but I would really like to be able to use my S7 to browse through my video collection and stream an episode of a TV series.

    I haven't found any apps on Market other than CifsManager which I'm struggling a bit with to get connected to my server, and if I can make it work, I'm doubtful that I can make my S7, using RockPlayer, to stream .avi's, I may have to create a local copy of the .avi first and then open it.

    Any tips or experiences?

    ~Christopher

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    I have tried VLC for Android to stream from my Shared storage (Buffalo SMB Netstore. It did work. But I cannot speak to your configuration. There are a number of variables which I cannot give a authoritative answer for your config.

    I have not installed the invisible shield on my S7. I got a 3 pack of matte antiglare screen protectors at Borders for ten bucks and cut one to size and it feels very responsive, glare is reduced and so are fingerprints.
    Having said that, I did play with an S7 at Best Buy which had the Zagg on and I did not like it at all. My finger seemed to stick while moving across the screen. I do have installed Bodygardz, BSE and Zagg screen protectos on about every phone I had and it is harder to do than regular screen protectors. You have to spray a water and mild soap solution and if not careful could damage whatever equipment you are puting it on.

    Still evaluating
    The Speck brand is suppose to be much better. Though now that I looked Speck doesn't make a screen protector for the S7 yet.

    I see, i'm still not decided on purchasing the zagg invi shield because it only comes in 1 piece per package unlike others that came by 3's.. so if i failed then no more chance to try unless i buy again... i would probably try the 3 pack screen protectors that you have mentioned. Whats that brand worth $10?

    added the Zagg to my S7 when I picked it up at Best Buy last week and had the sales clerk in Phone dept. install it for free, if they screw it up it is Best Buys $$$! The Screen schield extremely clear, tuff as nails and doesn't affect sensitivity at all ! It does add a bit of reflection to the screen and a little drag also, though neither is a major issue to me. The one BIG issue was the $29.95 I paid for it...but it is LIFE TIME GUARANTEE, if you scratch it, they replace it! And, if it keeps the screen from getting scratched and dinged it is well worth it!

    Cheers!
