VLC Stream & Convert - Stream Video to Phone

There is a free app out for Android in the Marketplace called VLC Stream & Convert.  It does exactly what it says, and then some:
  • Stream video files from computer to phone using VLC
  • Control VLC using Phone as Remote Control
  • Convert video files on the computer to phone formats
VLC Stream & Convert Player Modes

    So yeah, the app is pretty badass really.  You can use it like a TV remote on VLC, browsing for video files and playing them.  Plus you can stream video from the computer to the phone.  Anything VLC can play, you can basically stream.  If you need to convert the video, you can do that too.

    VLC rocks out with the cock out
    Setup is easy and the developer actually has the info in the app, and on the website.  You may end up needing access your router for ports, but it depends.   Check out the setup page for more info.

    This is the homepage of the app, run by the developer, who is apparently on travel 24/7 (lucky bastard!)

    I've tested this fairly extensively and have had little to no problems to report.  Using the phone as a remote control is fast and responsive.  Streaming 720p or other high def to the phone is also hassle-free.  You all can let me know if you have any problems in the comments.  I'll try to help you debug, if it comes to that...Either way get on it and start enjoying the freedom of .MKV from your massive library right to your mo-fuckin' phone, yo!
