It takes only a short of time to fill your mobile phone with films if you are a movie addict. In general, you can use Plex Media Server, Kodi or any DLAN compatible devices to solve this issue. But if you want to stream your movies on the go as well, set up an ASUS AiCloud with your own external hard drive is one of the best ways.
