ES File Explorer.

DNLA sucks and is horribly slow.

Dont know about Plex but if it uses DNLA or any sort of indexing method, Ill pass.

ES File Explorer gives you folder browsing capability rather than reading tags or other nonsense.

It does contain a built in movie and media player as well as a handful of very useful other networking features.

Skifta is pretty decent. It also allows you to stream via 3g/4g.

Similar to Air Video for iOs.

It's entirely free.

Second this.

Just make your video folder a Shared Folder in Windows. Install ES File Explorer and Dice Player.

After you've configured ES File Explorer, all you have to do is browse to your shared folder and choose any file. Open it in Dice Player and away you go.
