We just launched a beta of VLC Streamer for Android.
VLC Streamer lets you sit anywhere in your house, and stream movies from your Mac/PC to your Android.
During the beta, you get the full functionality for free.
Please report any bugs or issues at our forum

If you have multiple monitors connected to a mac, then this might interest you.
I just launched my first app in the Mac Appstore. It’s called Multi Monitor Wallpaper.
It lets you take one large image and apply it across your monitors.
You can move and scale the image, and even tweak the exact layout of your monitors.
My app cuts up the image and applies it across your screens.
Let me know what you think!

If you’d like to test the new VLC Remote, and you can spare time to give regular rebuilds a thorough test and write feedback, then please let me know.
Please email me at rob at hobbyistsoftware dot com – let me know
1) what devices you have,
2) why you’ll be a good tester.
I can only have a very limited number of testers, so don’t be offended if you don’t get in…
I just released an update for iBrowse which does two things.
Brings it up to date with iOS5
Brings the feature I have wanted for ages – you can now open links in a background tab
I use this when I’m browsing a news site. I go to news.bbc.co.uk, and I can now click and hold on a link, then select ‘open in background tab’. That story starts loading, and I pick a few other stories to load in the background.
Now I switch to coverflow view and swipe to one of the stories (which has probably already loaded by now).
It’s only $1, and there is a free version to try!
iBrowse is available as ever at the App Store.
We’re on Facebook. Click ‘like’ if you’d like to follow updates through Facebook.
Apple approved version 4.52 last night – so the (very stupid) skin bug is now fixed.
You should be able to use the default skin in all its glory.
I’ll have some simple variations on that skin along shortly – and if you have any artistic skills, then please do consider
trying your hand at creating a skin too!
You can get rid of pages (or bookmarks, or history for that matter) by tapping on the trash icon in the flow-mode view.
More fun is just to throw the page off the top of the screen!
Watch the linked video to see this (and other features) in action…
Shake your iPod or iPhone to hide the bottom toolbar and get full screen browsing.
To bring it back, just shake again, or tap on the bottom of the screen.
Or, just tap the down arrow to hide the toolbar, and tap at the bottom of the screen to bring it back.
Palm just approved the last update for VLC remote (0.1.9) which fixed an issue for windows users.
That has let me upload 0.2.0 which adds a whole new set of features.
The new version allows you to control DVD menus, toggle subtitles, languages, change speed and manage audio and subtitle delays.
You’ll have it as soon as Palm approve it!
