    Hi,

    I have a website that allows visitors to download or stream videos that I upload to another server each week.

    Do you know if any apps exist that I could use, or preferably edit, in order to provide users with access to the hosting server from where they can download or stream the videos? Or even just audio or text files for that matter.

    Thanks

    Any web server or FTP server would do that. Or a program could be written to allow users to download files from the site. What you need depends on exactly how you want it to work.

    thanks for your answer, I was just wondering if there was an obvious android app I was missing out on!

    I was just wondering if there was an existing android app that I could configure to connect to my hosting server and request to download files in the same way you do with a browser.

    I would then distribute the app to users of the website so obvious copyright issues would exist. Perhaps this shall be a project I take up myself!
