    For anyone that has an Android tablet and a PS3/XBox 360 and has access to the Android market there is an App called "ShareMe" which works wonderfully. I have been using it on my Droid and my friend on his EVO and it streams without a hiccup. Give is a shot and see how it works for you.

    I've had good luck with twonkyserver, which doesn't limit the number of files:

    TwonkyServer Mobile - Android app on AppBrain

    But after a while, kind of lost interest in streaming from the phone. All the media that I want are already on my home computer. Am I missing something?

    HTC Wildfire (2.2) & A1CS X220 TABLET 10.2" ANDROID 2.1
    I have a tablet coming in the post from amazon.. (two actually, one with Android 2.1 and one with 2.2)

    What I am wondering is if there is an app that can find media servers on my network that already exist and play them directly on the Tablet? On my pc I have PS3 media server & Twonky server and Orb.

    On my HTC Wildfire phone I use Twonky and Orb, dont know if they will work on the Android tablet also!

    I dont want to use my tablet/phone as a server but as a reciever/player.

    Thanks for any help in advance :)

    I have my PC serving with both TVersity and Orb. Haven't tried Orb yet on my NookColor (2.1), but I can easily browse my files with TVersity. The catch with TVersity is that it has two modes--normal media library and flash-library. Since there's no Flash in 2.1, that is a dead-end so far for me. On the other hand, when I try to view a picture or play a song in the normal media mode, the NC handles it fine.

    With video, things get tricky: normally, if I click on a video, the NC will try to download it (and if it's an MP4, play it after downloading). However, I've noted that if I have VPlayer installed and running as the default media player on the NC, videos will play while streaming. Even AVI's. Sounds great, right? The problem is that--despite VPlayer's versatility--it has sync issues and is overall laggy. :(

    So no perfect solution on a 2.1 tablet yet, afaik.

    Hi Matt, and thanks for the reply/info..

    I have used Tversity (was real in to it at one point) but one day the media server kept stopping and it never worked the same from then on! I tried looking at it from various angles..
    computer management/systems & services, un-reinstalling Tversity, admin privs, diff versions, static IPs, installing as windows service,nothing reliably worked on a consistant level!

    Orb seems more reliable depending an stream settings in my orblive app on my phone (apart from having to start the movie from begining each time and ffwr/rewnd not working during playback) I currently use TwonkyServer for streaming small files from my computer to my HTC Wildfire (TwonkyMedia player) and psp. I also use PS3 media server for larger files to my laptop/psp/PS3.

    I guess its all just thoughts in the cloud until I actually get my Tablets and try the various apps for myslf! I will be happyu to report back any success after they arrive ;)

    Thank you once again for your reply :>
