Default streaming mkv from pc to tab 2

If some of you would like to watch MKV movies on tab 2 using home network.

1. Download MX player and ES file explorer from Play store
2. On your Windows 7 control panel/network and sharing center/Choose homegroup and sharing options/change advanced sharing settings
(i believe you don't have to create a homegroup network)
Turn network discovery

Then you have to change windows permission for a folder where you have saved your MKV movies..






After that open es file manager on you Tablet click LAN/NEW/SCAN and it should display your computer ip 192.168.1.2( something like that) From there you should see a folder with your movies
