    How can streaming be done over wireless LAN on Android Nexus 7?

    I own a Nexus 7 non-rooted having stock firmware and Wi-Fi connected to my Netgear router running on DD-WRT v24 sp2 firmware. A USB HDD that I use as a NAS has been connected directly to my router. How can streaming of audio or video be done on this?

    There are several ways this can be done. In case NAS has streaming supported using DNLA/uPNP then a good app for the Nexus 7 could be, MediaHouse. This app has a native music player but at the same time it may need an external video player. For this MX Player is a good choice to have.If it is that you have no streaming software on the NAS you could use ES File Explorer and use it to locate the media file on the NAS share and then just play it.
