  1. tgreat article and thanks for sharing. But I am missing several applications that can be used for streaming and are free of charge: ArkMC, Beamer. Why you haven’t added them? ArkMC is a wireless streaming application. I even have Dolby there for just 3 dollars. Beamer is stable and support most popular formats.
    Have you tried these applications?
    thanks!
