Greetings all! I'm looking for advice on media streaming apps. I am looking to be able to stream media from a desktop machine to an Android tablet regardless of what network the tablet is connected to. However, I do not have the ability to forward ports when connecting to the desktop from outside of the network due to my apartment complex providing internet. Are there any apps that do not require port forwarding to access a desktop machine from outside of the network? Thanks!
I can't speak for how smoothly it would stream media, but I know that the two devices do not need to be on the same network.
Thanks for the suggestion, however I'm looking for something more along the lines of Skifta or Qloud Media that organizes media as a file manager would.
I've actually experimented with Splashtop Remote HD in the past when looking for a remote desktop client. However, it's lack of support for external inputs steered me away from it.
For a remote desktop client, I settled on Jump Desktop. This was the only client I could find offering custom resolution, right-click, external input, and two-finger scrolling support from both inside and outside the host machine's network by running a streaming client on the host machine. It's done an excellent job at turning my ASUS Transformer with mobile dock into a full-blown netbook regardless of what network I am connected to.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into that option.
I think I am going to end up switching to Verizon. Does anyone know if they offer a student discount and if so how much?
I kind of need to decide all of this by tomorrow as the double data deal is running out then.
I was thinking about getting the Galaxy Nexus since LTE is actually available in my town.
Student Discount? If there is, I don't know of one.

I put in my school email on verizons website and I got an email saying I could get 10% but it also called me faculty which I'm not. I'll talk to someone about it if I order it tomorrow.
I'm going to try their customer service first and try to see if they would be willing to price match Amazon's $230 price or at the very least waive the activation fee.
The discount is the same for faculty (employees) and students. I also have state employee discount (which is also 15%) ... it's kinda lame considering I still cant afford the $69.00+ 13% tax & surcharges a month.
Right now I'm paying $40 a month for Sprint on a family plan I share with my mother and sister but Sprint service is terrible in Tallahassee. In General it is mediocre at best but the last week has pushed me past the tipping point.
For over a week now their service has been down and they are blaming it all on a single tower in Jacksonville.
My last speedtest pulled 248kbps down and 253 up. It has gone down to as low as 41kbps down and 12 up. This is beyond pathetic. My phone is basically useless off of wifi.
Verizon is starting to piss me off here. I never have data (of any sort) when I need it. Even airplane mode and restarts don't do anything for me. I'm about to throw this through a window. ****, Sprint might even be more worth it right now.
