I was wondering if there's a good app that can stream PC content (mp3/mp4/mkv/wmv...etc) to iPhone using IOS 6.0? Thanks in advance.

I use an app called splashtop, gives you access to your PC on the move, WiFi or 3g

Thanks for the reply, im actually not looking for a remote desktop app, i have logmein for that. I'm actually looking for an APP that can stream pc content directly to the iphone (movies/audio files... etc)

ZumoCast did exactly what you want but it was pulled from the App Store. I'm not really sure of any alternatives, sorry :eek:

bummer, there's got to be another app that can stream stuff from the pc to iphone via wifi/4g/LTE.......

I was looking at orb but that app hasn't been updated in over a year.

Doesn't LogMeIn do this? When I used it I thought it gave me a list of folders/files to access without actually having to remote control the computer itself. Could be wrong though.

You could try dropbox if you only need access to a few files here and there, not your entire computer hard drive because obviously you'd need to buy more storage from them.

I use plexapp.com

Turns your PC into just what you're looking for. I can watch movies ripped on my pc at home and have access to my entire itunes library remotely over wifi or cell.

Very pleased with it.

The one I think is best:

Air Video

A newer one I haven't tried yet, but downloaded:

Air Playit

Something I never tried, but always thought looked good (also the only one of the bunch that has been updated for the iPhone 5 screen):

http://plexapp.com
Plex

Have all of your files on a shared drive, and don't need dynamic reencoding, and want to store the files locally so you can access them without the PC if you wish:

GoodPlayer

Want the best app for audio streaming of your music (Requires purchasing a secondary software app for the PC)?

iSub Music Streamer

Want access to of all your music from the PC, without having to install a server application on the PC?

iTunes Match

Good luck!

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for, I'm streaming my mkv files from my PC to my iPhone 5 and it looks GREAT. Thank you very much man, definitely worth the $4.99!
