    Dear all

    I am looking for a straightforward app which will allow me to stream movies, music and pictures from my readynas duo nas to my ipad 2 running 4.3.5. I am only planning to stream from nas and not from my mac or pc.

    As mine is only the 16gb version i dont want to download the content first and then play it as i will only like stream content when im at home via the wireless connection.

    I have tried a few apps but not been that keen with them. I have tried

    File browser
    Media connect
    Sync stream
    Flex player

    Is there any such app out there that will stream only?

    Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You could try with PLEX.
    I use plex to stream video and audio to my iPad thru a Mac mini, but I think it can also stream directly from a net gear server.

    No promises, but has a great interface

    Didnt try it to be honest. Instead i used file browser app which allows me to stream from my NAS works a treat but doesnt support all video formats but i guess i can sort that out by using a different movie player
