PlugPlayer is a highly flexible and powerful app for streaming movies and other types of media from a UPnP server. What sets this app apart from the rest listed in this guide, however, is the unique added feature set that PlugPlayer provides. For example, say you have your iPod Touch connected to speakers in your house. Well, with this app you can actually control that iPod without even being in the same room. With that being said, PlugPlayer is not without its issues. I found the interface to be awkward at best, and there are occasions where crashes will occur. Ultimately, I recommend you look at other options until PlugPlayer is updated. While PlugPlayer is powerful and flexible, there are too many bugs to recommend it over other apps listed here.

What is it about?

Finally, a simple way to use your existing UPnP™ software and devices from your Apple iPad. Introducing PlugPlayer, an application to stream music from UPnP™ media servers or control UPnP™ media renderers - all from the palm of your hand.

App Store Description

Finally, a simple way to use your existing UPnP™ software and devices from your Apple iPad. Introducing PlugPlayer, an application to stream music from UPnP™ media servers or control UPnP™ media renderers - all from the palm of your hand.

- Stream Music*, Video*, or Photos* from a Media Server* to your Apple iPad
Already have a media server running on your home computer or server? With PlugPlayer you can access music from your media server and listen to it on your iPad.

- Control PlugPlayer from another Apple iPad
Like listening to your iPod touch while it is docked to speakers, but hate having to physically walk over to change the playlist or volume? With PlugPlayer, you can use your iPad to remotely control another copy of PlugPlayer.

- Control a Media Renderer* from your Apple iPad
Already have a media renderer hooked up to your stereo? No need to fumble around looking for the right remote. With PlugPlayer you can control your media renderer using your iPad, creating a playlist from media on your media server.

- Push media from your Apple iPad
Use PlugPlayer to push media from the built-in server, or from external servers, to Media Renderers or AirPlay compatible devices such as Apple TV.

- No Additional Software or Configuration Required
Other solutions require proprietary software on your home computer, but PlugPlayer uses the media server you already have. Plus, PlugPlayer automatically discovers devices on your network without the need for manual configuration or settings.

- Advanced Features
Of course, should your device not be discoverable due to your network circumstances, there is also a way to manually add a device. With PlugPlayer's advanced device configuration, you can stream music and video from remote servers or even over VPN. You can even use PlugPlayer to help other media renderers discover your remote servers.
