Stream Videos to Android (Part 2) HTC EVO

Went a slightly different route but got reliable video streaming to finally work on my phone from my movie server at home:

Obtain Market App: VLC Stream & Convert qr

Start up VLC on host computer (On port 8091):

vlc -I http --http-host :8091

Start app VLC Stream & Convert

- Select Menu / Connect

- Enter your IP <hostname> and 8091 port

To fix audio lag go to: Menu->Settings->Stream rtsp->Synchronize on audio


  1. if there any app that can output video to pc server.

  2. For Android to PC, search for "DLNA" on the android market and try out the various server programs.
