You might not be at all interested in online video platforms of the likes of Netflix or HBO, and you still might be into downloading contents from BitTorrent. On your computer, you've probably got all the superhero movies ever released, all the episodes of Games of Thrones, Narcos or Westworld, as well as other videos that you wouldn't want your mom to find. How to transfer those files from a PC or Mac to an iPhone or iPad to watch them on a smaller screen?
Well, you don't really need to do so, you've just got to download VLC Streamer Free, an app associated with the well-known multimedia player that allows you to stream all your multimedia contents stored on your PC to your iOS devices.
How does VLC's streaming work?
You need to download this app to your mobile device and then you'll also have to install the corresponding program for Windows or Mac. Then you only need to detect the devices on the same network and start the transmission. Now you can watch all these videos while you do other things around your house, such as cooking, working out, playing an instrument thanks to a tutorial... whatever you want.
Its possibilities are almost endless. Use it on the same WiFi network.
This mirroring app, that works similarly to others like Chromecast, comes along with the following features:
- Easy to install and to use.
- Share contents with any device connected to the same network.
- Stream downloaded videos or even from sites like YouTube.
- Compatible with different image and resolution qualities.
But if there's a free app like this one, why should I want to buy the paid version? Well, the functions are exactly the same, but in this one you're going to have to watch a few adverts. The Pro version costs about 3 dollars, so it might be a good idea to try out the free version first and then go for the paid one if you like it. User Androids are downloading the APK by the dozen... so what are you waiting for?
