Stream video from tablet to android phone? (VLC Server or something?)
Firstly, hi! This is my first post here, so please be kind
OK, I have no idea if what I want to do is possible, but here it is. I would like to be able to stream video from my Xoom tablet to my Galaxy Nexus. The reason being that I always carry my tablet with me in my backpack, and sometimes it isn't convenient (or safe!) to have it outon display. So for these occasions (bus journeys etc) I would love to be able to stream some of the content I have on my Xoom to my Nexus. I know this will totally kill the battery, but I don't really care.
I am hoping I can do this through a combination of using my Xoom as a Wi-Fi hotspot, running VLC server on it, and joining my Nexus to the hotspot (so that IP comms can happen) and using the VLC client on the Nexus to connect to the server and receive the stream.
I am pretty tech savvy, and am going to give this a go anyway, but I was wondering if anyone here had done something similar and either a) loved it or b) regretted it.
Cheers, and thanks in advance for any suggestions!
