As a movie amateur, you must have a large collection of favorite movies on your own PC. It would be excellent if you could enjoy all of these on your Android mobile phone whenever and wherever you want. If you are looking for ways to stream videos from PC to Android phone, here is a list of the best free apps for you.
Air Playit is a video streaming software designed to stream videos to mobile devices. Now the Android platform is available. Air Playit is capable of streaming 320 different video & audio formats to your mobile devices via WiFi and 3G/4G network. It acts as your personal video cloud server and lets you enjoy video on the go.
UPnPlay can help you streaming videos from computer to your Android device via the DLNA media server. It’s user interface is rather simple and straightforward, and the configuration is easy to understand. This app has gained good ratings and is definitely worth a try.
Emit Lite does most of what Air Playit does, with one added benefit. Emit is able to display subtitles from SRT files, and softcoded subtitles in MKV files. However, this free version is ad-supported, and ads can be shown even while you are watching videos.
VLC Direct makes it possible to stream videos from your PC to your Android phone and vice-versa. Just stream your media over to your device wirelessly. The app also doubles to make your Android device a remote control for VLC Media Player. It also has super easy configuration - a joy for even the most non-techie of people.
BubbleUPnP is one of the best Android applications of its kind. Although BubbleUPnP itself if no formidable media player, video playback can be delegated to other applications, so you can play virtually any media without transcoding or prior conversion.
