ES File Explorer can browse your local network. Add the ES Chromecast plugin and you are able to stream many media formats with it. There are audio issues with certain formats, but I imagine that will be addressed at some point.

The better solution is simply to install the Plex server on your computer and drop $5 on the app for your tablet. Create a free Plex account, install the app on your phone, and you can access all of your media with a clean, professional interface anywhere you can get online.

The amount of taxes they didn't collect averaged $2,000 per household. Shortly after that, the companies began sales and mergers. TechDirt.com published an article detailing this scam as recently as 2013.

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
