    I'm looking for an iOS App that connects to my NAS and makes streaming of my movie avi, mp4, m4v, mkv, etc to my Apple TV 2G.

    What do you recommend?

    I'm using Infuse 3 Pro app together with a NAS + Chromecast in the tv. This works like a charm.
    I'm not a Apple TV 2G.

    I also have a QNAP NAS T-112! And you? Have you Apple TV 2G?

    VLC does not work well for you instead of Infuse Pro?

    You might also recommend an app to browse pictures and music from QNAP and use AirPlay to Apple TV?

    I have a QNAP TS-119P+ (this is an older model) and an Apple TV 3.

    I think Infuse just works better for streaming than VLC. However, I haven't tried the latest version of VLS so it may have gotten better.

    For browsing pictures on the QNAP and Airplay them I can recommend QNAP's own app: QFile. It is one of the few file manager apps which have native Airplay. And it is also free :) QFile can also stream music, but I haven't tried that yet.
