    Ya that's cool. I subscribe to his channel and am always impressed. But Airdroid doesn't allow you to stream movies to your device. Only from it.

    Just had to say thanks for posting about this, and two thumbs up for Plex Media Server. Just put it on my home media server and am loving it!

    I installed remote potato on my win 7 pc which is free. Them I use remote media center app to stream. The only audio player that seems to work though is v player. I can stream mp4 avi and mkv with really good quality.

    Thanks again for all the replies to date, I really like the look of QVIVO, just the monthly subscription putting me off a little, other than this does everything I would like. Plex also a good looking option, just needing the server running all the time.

    Google Drive has limited space for free ( I think ) so probably not good for uploading movies and Dropbox only allows a certain length of movies file to be played.

    Might just have to man up and pay for the QVIVO service!

    I have A Buffalo Cloudstor which is a personal cloud storage device you connect to you modem. I like it for its expandability, home control, no monthly fees, and it uses an app called PogoPlug which has not had any issues on any Android device (since a few updates ago) that I own. Amazon sells them if interested.

    I use it only for streaming videos. I just made three folders for me and my family (me, wife, kids) and love it. Good luck with what ever you pick.

    I use Plex to stream the video from the drive, through my home PC, to my kids Roku device, but it is a little wonky and the PC needs to be on at all times.
