Access & Stream Computer Files & Media On Android With AirStream

These days, one can easily access files stored on their computer on the go straight from a mobile device, thanks to high-speed internet connections and a bunch of apps and services out there that make it possible. Just a few weeks ago, I covered OnAir Player that lets you access and play media files stored on your PC from your iOS or Android device. However, if you want more flexibility and control, along with full access to all your files rather than just music, photos and videos, you should check out AirStream. It is the duo of an Android app and a desktop server app that gives you full remote access to your Windows, Mac or Linux computer from your phone or tablet, either via your local Wi-Fi network, or over the internet...

Getting started with AirStream is a straightforward process. To use the service, you first have to install the AirStream Suite on your Windows, Linux or Mac. Upon launch, you’ll be taken to a login screen. You can either sign in with an AirStream account (new users can register a new account via the mobile app), or use the service over your local network without having to log in. In case of the latter, just make sure both your Android and PC are on the same Wi-Fi network.

On a Windows PC, you will also need to allow AirStream access to the network through Windows Firewall when prompted.
Windows Security Alert
On the Android end, you can either log into your AirStream account, or hit ‘Try Without Login’ to connect to your computer over Wi-Fi without using an account. AirStream will then scan for available computers over your current Wi-Fi network and show you their name(s), after which you just need to tap the name of the desired computer to connect.

Under both scenarios, you’ll be taken to the main interface after a connection has been established. Once there, you can browse the computer’s file system through the simple and easy-to-navigate interface. You can move up and down between directories by swiping left or right. Likewise, tapping a drive or folder reveals its contents.
AirStream gives you access to any type of item, be it audio, video, image, document, or a text file. And you can open your desired file in the associated mobile app.

Another interesting feature of AirStream is that it lets you block access to certain items from your computer, such as files that are confidential in nature and that you don’t want to expose on your network in any way. This is quite handy if you want to let your friends or coworkers access media files from your PC while preventing access to other data. To block files and folders, right-click AirStream’s system tray icon and click ‘Block files & folders’ from the context menu.
Notification Icon
A new window will pop up, in which you can simply start adding files and folders that you want to keep private.
AirStream PC Suite
AirStream also lets you play music files from your computer directly in its built-in media player. Although highly primitive in terms of features, you can easily shuffle, repeat and skip songs if that’s all you need. Furthermore, you can explore files stored on your phone or tablet as well, by tapping My Device in sidebar menu.
AirStream_Sidebar AirStream_Music
All in all, AirStream is definitely an interesting app with loads of useful features. It’s available for free on all supported platforms.

  1. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
    such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe
    that you just can do with a few p.c. to pressure the message home a bit, but other than
    that, this is great blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.|

  3. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to
    ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many
    thanks!|

  4. I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a blog or if I have
    something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it's a result of the fire displayed in the post I read.

    And after this article "Access & Stream Computer Files & Media On Android With AirStream".
    I was actually moved enough to drop a thought ;-) I actually do have some questions for you
    if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or do some
    of these responses look like written by brain
    dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I'd like to keep
    up with you. Could you list every one of all your social pages like your
    Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?|

    I have been wanting to set up my own website for a while now
    but have been turned off mainly because I've always believed it demanded tons of
    work. What do you think? Thanks!

    It is caused by the fire communicated in the post I looked at.
    And after this article "Access & Stream Computer Files & Media On Android With AirStream".
    I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;) I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not
    mind. Could it be just me or does it look like like a few of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I'd like to keep up with you.

  11. I realized from this product that it doesn't matter how far away you are
    or what you look like; it's all about having the right attitude and spitting out
    the right lines when you are talking to any given
    woman. Aside from that you could akso benefit from the free spins.
    Not really for starters plus a little bit expensive.

  34. I think what you said was actually very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't wish to tell
    you how to run your blog, however what if you added a title that makes people desire
    more? I mean "Access & Stream Computer Files & Media On Android With AirStream" is a little boring.

    You could peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they write news titles to get viewers to
    open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your website a
    little bit more interesting.
