Windows/Linux (and Android): Apple’s AirPlay tech, set up the right way, flings any video you want to see to any Apple/iOS device you own. Get a similar universal streaming setup for your Android with VLC-Shares.
One thing VLC-Shares is not is a one-click setup. It requires running a small form of an Apache web server on your computer, a bit of fine-tuning the VLC media player, and perhaps some of port configuration through your router, if you’re not already set up. When everything’s up and running, though, you can share any folder on your computer through VLC-Shares, and then play it on your Android device of choice from anywhere on the same Wi-Fi network. Really handy if you’re rocking an Android tablet, and still pretty neat if you’re doing a little lazy-viewing from your couch or bed.
There are setup instructions at VLC-Shares’ home but, honestly, you’re better off reading the detailed tutorial at the How-To Geek’s home (at the via link). VLC-Shares is a free download for Windows and Linux systems (and Android phones).
