Can you play media from XBMC on your mobile?

Is it possible to connect to XBMC that's installed at your home from say your work place using Wi-Fi?

thanks

Actually there is no xbmc-Android-app available to play the content of your xbmc-machine directly on your Android-device.

What IS possible is to enable the UPNP-service inside xbmc and install something like UPnPlay from the market on your device, so with that you can - limited to the abilities of your device - stream xbmc's content inside your INTRAnet!

you should REALLY mean to stream your content unsing an INTERNET-connection: I would suggest a very fast (!!!) upload speed of your home-connection as well as a truly save setup of your home-LAN...Big Grin

I would also love a feature like that on the remote. Current UPNP streamer/downloaders aren't exactly user friendly and end up working not working correctly most of the time on my phone.
Another awesome feature imho would be that the remote automatically downloads unwatched episodes (and subtitles) to the phone (with an option to select if all unwatched episodes are to be send, or only those of a particular show, a particular season, or only say the next 3 unwatched episodes). The same could be done with movies.
