    VLC Direct (Playing Video from PC to Tablet)

    I installed VLC Direct to primarily stream videos from my PC to Transformer. It seems that I was able to set up everything correcly as I was able to access my PC and even play audio files (mp3s) but the Video were not playing smoothly.

    Firstly, I noticed that the screen will remain blank for a long time even though the time counter moves.
    Secondly, even when the video started to play, it was not uniform, it broke a lot and also seemed to lag.
    Thirdly, the quality was not very good.

    I tried playing an avi and a .mkv file.

    Does anyone has any idea what possibly could be the problem (format not supported, do I need to install some additional app, my wifi not fast enough, etc).

    Get Plex. It's the ONLY app I have found that plays movies smooth(ish). It transcodes using ffmpeg on the PC (Server app is free). The Android app you have to pay for but there is a time limited free version to demo. The only thing it lacks right now is subtitle support. But that's coming apparently.

    I had vlc direct and there is not many options like resolution etc but after upgrading to vlc direct pro you can change the resolution and various other things and I find it fine dose what I want it's worth a look for the price.

    Works for me now, but with Rock Player.

    Mobo player was crappy, even Rock Player doesnt play AVIs smoothly but at least it is playing mp4 and mkv.
