Stream audio/video files from you Windows PC/Laptop to your Android Phone.

This tutorial will show you how to stream audio or video files, as well as how to transfer files between your PC (Windows XP, 7, 8 or 8.1) and your Android Phone. This solution is using Wi-Fi connection, therefore you need to connect both of your devices (computer and phone) to the same Wi-Fi network (usually, you home network). This will use the sharing function from Windows (unsecured – no password protected).

All you need for this is:

1. Install ES File Explorer File Manager to your Android Phone

2. Share your PC folder/drive.
Right click on a folder/drive from your PC. Go to Properties and then click on “Sharing and Security” tab.
