Best Android apps for Streaming

Best apps for Streaming

Video streaming is quickly becoming a very big deal. Cable subscriptions are looking less and less like a good deal and there are now tons of ways to enjoy content online. The beauty of streaming is very simple. No downloading. All on hand a click of a button. The rise of streaming apps is getting bigger and bigger. Of course, some streaming apps do come with a monthly subscription fee. We take a look at what we think are the best …

EBMC / Kodi

EBox® Media Center is an SPMC fork of Kodi. EBMC, SPMC, and Kodi all work relatively the same. However, we have found that EBMC works best with an Android TV-powered Box. Kodi is open-source software designed specifically with home entertainment in mind – and it’s totally free. Although XBMC was created for the Microsoft Xbox and called Xbox Media Center (XBMC). The software has continued to evolve – spawning a community all of its own. EBMC or Kodi essentially turns an Android TV Box into a digital set-top box or streamer. It gives users the ability to stream files from the internet, a home network and local storage. Kodi isn’t held back by licensing or a curated app store. It lets you download a range of community-made apps, and watch whatever you like. EBMC’s purpose-built UI makes browsing through your content simple. Thanks to a range of built-in codes, users can browse videos, photos, and podcasts quickly and easily.

Plex Client

Plex organizes all of your video, music, and photo collections, and gives you instant access to them on all of your devices. With the free Plex Media Server software on your home computer and Plex for Android. You can enjoy all of your personal media on your device. Plex clients require a decent spec to run, which is why an Android player is perfect. Plex is the all-in-one media sharing server that uses your PC to distribute content to any device. Plex essentially acts as a faux-server. It uses your computer and the media you already have as a media hub for devices you grant it access to. Beyond your own content. Plex has a bunch of different content channels built-in for you to use it. Some of them, like BBC iPlayer, already have good standalone apps for Android. However, it makes sense to have it all in one.

YouTube

YouTube is quickly becoming one of the number one forms of viewing entertainment. Due to the success of E-Sports and such millions of users now watch events live. Thanks to the rise of YouTubers, millions and millions of us watch their content daily.It’s hard to imagine the world without YouTube, but trust we are old and we remember. We take for granted YouTube, but you cannot deny this … You watch one video, then before you know it. It’s 2 hours later. That’s the magic of YouTube. Complete user-created content, all at your fingertips, covering anything you can imagine.

Twitch

Twitch is the number one app for watching and streaming video games. With more and more people choosing to watch their favourite streamers than actual TV. Twitch is the one app you need if that is your thing. With it, you can follow and watch all of your favourite content creators. E-Sports is one of the biggest phenomena in recent years. Twitch is a massive part of that success.
