The main way people use this application is to stream their content over the internet. It acts as a UPnP server, allowing you to start streaming your files quickly and easily.

It will automatically help you detect what devices you have connected and start streaming, even if you’re a beginner.

But it’s also a great tool to use as a streaming application that you can use for various of your devices. It supports many devices, including PS3, XBOX 360, Sony TV, Samsung TV, and other devices.

The app will do that for you, so you won’t have to worry about compatibility issues.
