Watching .ts files remotely on Android

Hi All - I have NextPVR and I'm trying to watch it on Android.  Is it possible and if so what do I use?  I've tried installing the nDroid and nTouch but those just crash and can't seem to connect.  I set my admin/password and the port number is still 8866.  Any ideas?

Thanks!

try using VLC, it plays back many formats and handles broken streams well

Given NextPVR seems to work well with Kodi/xbmc, why don't you try Kodi on Android?  You can sideload versions off the kodi download page (http://kodi.tv/download/), from either 14 or 15 branch.  I've been using 15 for a month now, very happy with it on Android TV devices actually.

Actually, looks like there are instructions for even watching live via xbmc/kodi, those these might be out of date, there should be similar methods: http://nextpvr.com/nwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Client.XBMC

VLC for android is another choice, but the network browse/play functionality is 'beta' at the moment, and seems to come and go between builds.

I could get XBMC to see NextPVR through the addon however I can't see to access my recorded shows.  

I guess for the VLC - I don't want to setup streams I just want to be able to remotely access the recordings through the library or something like that.

Sorry for the confusion.

Are you using newer Kodi alpha/beta versions?  Isengard/15.x has a beta release that just came out for android.  I don't have NextPVR, so can't talk to it specifically -- and most people discussing Kodi+NPVR are obviously on PCs of some sort.  Not sure if there's an updated plugin, but if you're still using xbmc release, try a kodi 15.x beta (just released this weekend).

Beyond that... You can always try asking for specific steps in the xbmc forums:

(or in the nextpvr forums as well).

Cool thanks for the help.  I kind of have it working through a windows share and accessing it over the LAN on my Android but it seems to pause a lot and doesn't stream properly...  I'm using an Asus newer router but who knows.  I guess I'll have to keep monkeying around lol.

Thanks!
