Mainly to stream videos from my home pc to my iPhone when I am remotely out and about. Thanks. I know the first step is over a VPN but not sure how to go about doing it. No my router does not have VPN comparability. I am on AT&T 1 Gbps fiber so I know my speed shouldn't be a problem. I don't want to get another router right now sorry.

If no one can help it is fine but I thought I at least try. Thanks. Any other info you need feel free to ask. Thanks.

I used to use Plex to stream video from my home network... but then everything went in the cloud and everything is streamable... so I took it down a couple years ago

For media, nothing beats Plex (though if your on mac, there used to a very nice app called AirVideo)

If your also looking for remote-access, I suggest RealVNC (basic account is free and upto 5PCs iirc) plus DropBox for copying files (faster and easier than emailing them to yourself)
