As far as streaming goes, for your home network and as well as your cellular mobile data connection I'd have to say for sure Plex, PlexPass and Plex Media Server...

I love it, it beats the ever living crap out of what PlayOn tries to offer which is technically the same thing, but Plex has a much nicer UI, better help and a cheaper price almost half the cost of PlayOn. If ya can get PlayOn working their only advantage is a much larger list of Plugin Channels, but a lot of them are outdated.

Plex also offers media conversion and upscaling so to speak, it'll let you choose which resolution to play whatever in. It's also played any format I throw at it so far, I might add.

I've got Plex set up on my Revue and Note 2, on my Note 2 when I'm away from my home network I'm still able to view my shared media and streamed internet channels on my Plex Media Server at home through my cellphone carriers data plan.

That's a huge plus for me, almost makes needing a sd card to store media on unnecessary...

Has anyone tried using VLC on their Revue; it seems like this *should* hopefully work somewhat... http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/android-x86/

Granted I haven't tried it on my Revue yet; I will in the next couple days when I have time... but I've been using the VLC nightly armv7 builds on my Samsung Galaxy S4 (it's not available in the Play Store in the United States); it works EXCELLENT for every movie/video I've tried. I just realized today that they've recently (probably in the past 3 months) started compiling an x86 android build on their server as well... if nobody else tries in in the next few days, I'll post an update in here of my results with it. Thankfully they compile it for us, I compiled VLC for android one time... took hours upon hours on my old old laptop once I worked the kinks many, many, many kinks in the scripts.

edit: sorry I just realized this prob a little off topic since this isn't streaming, but I hate to start a new thread

First Things is awesome. Archbishop Chaput writes some really great stuff on there from time to time but all the writers seem class acts.

Hope your Lent's going well BFK

Its been something on my mind for a while, some days will have better turnouts than others when it comes to when feds air, I just want to get an idea of what days are best for streaming your fed and which days are not so great. I feel like the results of this poll will help not only myself, but other fed heads who consider scheduling.

Just set this up to try and it works fine.
The only thing I cant do is use skip key on the Android player VLC, MX Player
Is there a way to do this?

I only recently found the time to look at this problem again, and unfortunately there has been no change.

I have tried to connect both the beyonwiz and NAS into the orbi base router via cable connection and the problem still occurs. When I connect it back to the original telstra modem/router and remove the orbi, there is no problem.

When the problem occurs, I have been monitoring the orbi and there does not appear to be any loss of connection. Interestingly, I seem to be able to stream from my NAS to macbook pro using a wireless connection on the orbi without any problems.

Is there anything I can try in the settings of the P1?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks Paul

I’ll give that a try, but the streaming issues only started when the new router was introduced into the network.

PI. So many denoise scripts
Ive used few but now just use TGV denoise while data is linear then after stretching. Its easy and does a nice job.

Does this sound reasonable ? Which is the best for what type of image ?
And Id never even heard of MURE until this thread ...
