    Is there any app that exists that would allow me to stream music (or video) from a laptop or NAS to my phone? I know that droids definitely have the capability, so I was wondering if there is a WP equivalent. If one doesn't exist, does anyone know if there is one in development?

    You can try "Connected Media" if you have an HTC phone. I don't know of any 3rd party apps though

    You can try Qloud Media. It can stream video, music and pictures to your Windows Phone from your PC . It need install proper server software on your PC.

    You can see more detail on this link.

    If you have any problem and suggestion, visit the forum.

    If your computer uses Windows 7, there is a way to set it up as DLNA compatible server without any third party applications. Or if you're using Windows Vista or earlier, the latest Windows Media Player also have media server function.
    Media Streaming with Windows 7 - Engineering Windows 7 - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

    Also there's NAS brands that includes media server service.

    Connected Media seems to be DLNA compatible player. IINM, LG (or is it Samsung ?) also have DLNA player.

    Hi chaps, Any ideas greatly appreciated. Looking for an app to stream from my NAS without needing to turn the PC on. Any ideas? HTC Mozart.

    Is your network attached storage powered externally and does it have it's own IP address?

    Also looking for the same thing, my NAS has a static IP adress on my network and has its own power supply, I am looking to stream music and video over my wireless network to my Lumia 710.

    I'm really interested in this too, honestly here I have never seen an iOS app that did it without jailbreaking and going down the XBMC route, which allowed me to stream from a USB NAS drive hooked up via my Airport Extreme Router directly to my iPhone / iPad without a PC acting as a server.

    Since updating to a newer iPad I switched to Airvideo, which sadly meant I needed the PC left on to act as a server, but at least it wasn't as clunky as WMC... I still shudder to remember the pain caused by trying to sync my 360 as an Extender... :mad:

    If there's an XBMC style app for WP7.5 I will be incredibly happy, if not then Airvideo style would also be ace... If I have to actually convert and load the videos over though... I think I'll stick to the iPad

    As others have mentioned, I use HTC's Connected Media to stream from my NAS to my phone (HTC Mozart WP7.5).

    Whilst it does a fairly good job of connecting to my Netgear ReadyNAS and playing media the app could do with some improving to make it easier to find the media you are after on the NAS, such as using the same alphabetic quick jump you get when finding a contact etc as I have loads of media and have to scroll down through loads of artists or folders each time to find what I am after.

    The app also has a nice feature which allows you to push media from your phone to other DLNA devices such as Smart TV's and PC's. Very cool for showing off your pictures on the widescreen TV!

    I haven't seen any other apps for WP offering this sort of functionality so if anyone knows of any then I would be interested to hear more. :)

    cPlayer works for music, I don't know about videos. Also, stream player and mymeidahub work fine. Moliplayer also streams pretty great.
