Recommended Posts

Both my pc and tab are connected to same router, a option to access files will be helpful, also can i stream videos stored on pc.

Just Like the option shown on techquickie where files can be shared between pc

Yes, you could do that. but depends.

 

You could use a HTTP-Server, that requires some kind of http server setup and isnt plug and play at all.

You could use SMB Server (i recommend samba) but this takes time and isnt plug and play at all.

and so on..

 

techquicke i think is using NAS servers + centos + and samba? however im not sure.

Just share the folder in Windows, that will create an SMB share.

 

Access it with an app like File Manager + on Android

File Explorer +, "remote" icon, add, local network, it'll find your share automatically, then you login if you configured one. Kinda straightforward.
