I have been playing with a few apps that allow you to access and stream files on my networked PCs and Macs to my PlayBook. Until now I have been using Subsonic but now there is another contender called Lan File Explorer by Liang Gao. You simply install the free FileHub app on your PC or Mac as a file/media server and then lets you browse those drives from your PlayBook along with streaming video, music, and pictures to your PlayBook.
Features include the ability to:
- Browse folders/files;
- Instantly watch movies/videos(streaming). It has a build-in video player and can play in fullscreen mode;
- Instantly listen music(streaming);
- View photos. It has Build-in picture viewer and allow swipe to switch photos;
- Read various types of text files including source code, scripts, etc.;
- Able to Download any types of files to your BlackBerry PlayBook.
