    Ive done a lot of searching, and cant find exactly what Im looking for, so Ill turn to the forum.

    I have a vista machine that has about 400 gigs of music. we are a pc family so my media folders are shared via the wireless network. Is there an app/player that would allow me to browse my shared pc folders and playlist and allow me to stream this music and video? The closest I could find is an app called subsonic. Its not quite what im looking for. samsungs allshare is very basic. subsonic can be a bit complicated for folks that dont know how to set up port forwarding and static lan ip's.

    and also, any apps that would let your phone control windows media player?

    I beleive the app called orb might be what your looking for as it uses your main computer as a server.
