android help

I just bought a Galaxy Mini 2 and need some advice on what app to get. You see I have a network drive with movies on it, is there an app I can use to stream movies from said network drive?

I don't mind paying money for an app and any help is appreciated.

Dang, don't have my tablet with me, but I'm pretty sure this came standard and works fine from media stored on my tablet.

This says it is for remote connecting, which I don't do with a tablet, but I could swear it is also good for viewing streamed movies from a remote source:

I know ES File Manager has support for accessing network shares, though I'm not sure how it would handle streaming video. I know it has a mini media player build into it however I've never actually tried it over a network. Though assuming it supports that it's probably the easiest free alternative.

Thanks man, that worked perfect
