Local Video Streaming - Need Xoom owners help
Hello Xoom owners. I'm curious if the "Qloud Video Free" android app is available and working with the Xoom? The app is suppose to stream local network shared videos (xvid, divx, mkv, etc) to an android device. The app is free and I am asking Xoom owners to test it on wifi (It has 3g features as well). This will help me decide if I will buy the Xoom this week. Thank you in advance.
Can anyone tell me if the Qloud Video Free app is downloadable in the android market on the Xoom? Can it run on the Xoom? Here is a link to the app in the market.

Thanks for the help Xoom owners. The server side software is available at the developers site:
Qloud Video Free - Qiss
I have alot of divx, xvid, mp4 and mkv's on my home network that I want to know if they will play with this app on the Xoom. If you get it to work, can you tell rest of us the quality of the play back? Thanks again everyone.

Wellllllllllllllllllllll after tying a bunch of formats with this app I give it a huge thumbs down. I got it to play avi files...barley. It lagged so much it was unwatchable. I would suggest trying plex. I'm having better luck with that one and it plays mpeg files.

I'm away from my place right now, but I remoted in and set it up on my server. Over a low bw stream (256kbps) it worked fantastic. Read all my formats (avi, mkv, divx, wmv), from SD all the way to 1080p. I'm really curious to see how it will do over wifi at home with the max bw settings. So far, however, I give it a thumbs up.

Thanks for the testing
Hey ScottAtlanta82. Thanks for all the advanced testing. I read on another Xoom thread that talked about using DNLA as an alternative to stream video. The people using DNLA suggested using the Rock Player on the Xoom and something like Windows Media Player 11 as the DNLA server to host the videos. I heard good results with this setup. I don't have a Xoom yet. So, I will not be able to test it out with the Rock Player. For those people who have done it, let us know how DNLA works for you on the Xoom and what is the quality. Thanks Xoom owners.
