    Are there any applications for the HP Touchpad that would allow video streaming from a device on a local network? On my laptop, I just go into the Network section and find the file, and it streams directly from my NAS; I'd like to be able to do that on my Touchpad, so I don't have to manually transfer every single video over USB.

    Thanks in advance.

    It sounds... imperfect. I want to stream from my Synology NAS, which doesn't run Windows and can't run Orb. I'd need to have an open laptop whenever I wanted to stream, then, which while possible isn't ideal. Any other suggestions?

    Does your Synology NAS come with a built-in DLNA (or UPnP) server? If yes you could use BHomePro (works great for me and my Buffalo NAS). There's a trial version in the catalogue too.

    There's an app caled UPnP AV Player. It supports MP4, M4A, M4V, MOV, 3GP, and 3G2.

    grab the upnp player, then if your NAS doesn't support upnp for whatever reason, grab tversity or ps3media server. Profit.

    Twonky Video Server will work. It has it's own web page that any browser can explore files and play either, music, video or photos.

    Works great, but yo will have to install Twonkey server on the PC or Linux box that contains the files on your home network

    Windows version:http://www.twonky.com/products/twonk...s/default.aspx

    are there any free upnp/dlna players out there?

    paid apps aren't available in australia. not that i'm keen on purchasing apps anyway.

    i've managed to use android phones for over two years without needing to purchase a single app.

    EDIT: i should add that i want it to hook into my existing windows media server.

    I am looking for a solution (free app) for this too. The webOS community would do better with some free apps that come standard on other platforms such as a media app that supports streaming from home servers.
    Alright this is what I have figured out till now. The Touchplayer (free app) that can be installed via Preware is pretty versatile player that has played many file formats that I have thrown at it. It is also good at digging around the Touchpad file system to look for folders which contain media.
    What I am looking for now is a way to mount the NAS on the Touchpad so that the Touchplayer can see it to access the media files inside. Any help (easy tutorial on mounting NAS files) from senior Precentral members would be a great.
    Thanks,
