Default What are you using to stream tv shows / movies?

Hello,

Recently came across XBMC for streaming media content. Works pretty good on the TF700. Just wondering what everyone is using these days for their movie/tv show streaming?

I use FX file explorer to get to the file then MX player to stream.

I would prefer xbmc if it wasn't a battery hog and had a way to prevent inadvertent screen touches. MX player has that feature.

I use Plex and the usual steaming apps like Netflix, Hulu and Crackle.

BS player is a pretty good choice for streaming via local media server.

Default AW: What are you using to stream tv shows / movies?

i have PC with SageTV running as central TVServer for recordings.
Unfortunately those recordings are stored with strange naming-convention and are spread over several drives and folders. This makes it quite complicated to stream seamless.

So there are two ways i use to watch those TVrecordings to my TF700

1. use SageTV-app for android to browse & download and then play with MXPlayer

2. use splashtopHD to connect on the serverdesktop and directly stream the remote-desktop. That works pretty well in good quality and without stuttering if wifi-connection is in good shape.

I have also tried plex-server and android-client, but i donīt like the android-client of plex


Watching live-tv is done using Dreambox with enigma2 and approprite android-app to browse epg & stream.
