  1. but, its just a media player with some fancy functions… I've try'ed on my computer with the app but besides the youtube feature – nothing much:/

  2. This is soo complicated :/ …. My way is to connect your pc to the hdtv (preferebly by hdmi but vga works too) and install on your pc and your android device Gmote . It lets you use the phone as a remote to play movies from your pc to your tv or the opposite play movies from your pc to your phone ( that feature is still beta ..)

  3. Xbmc is really cool stuff. I was searching for something like this like 5 years ago yet having a remote on a PDA was back then a much more expemsive idea then now and with much less features then todays technology. Thanks a lot Adam for this great pro tip! (~_^)b
