I have run the app with flac on 6 devices (5 Android and an iPod) off a NAS dlna server. It runs perfectly on my Galaxy S3 and the wife's S3, however on all the other devices it is slow to load and crashes. I believe for me it is a version problem, and I happened to luck out when I installed ver 3.40 on our S3s - although I'd like to say the phone has a lot to do with it, too, but I can't say for sure. The other installs on the other devices were either older versions (2 Droid Xs, iPod), or newer (Galaxy Tab 10.1 1st gen). The Galaxy Tab isn't as bad as the Droid and iPod devices, but it times-out after a while and "forgets" my server and I have to restart the app to see the server again. I want to say the most recent ver. broke the smoothness of v3.40, but that's just my guess. Otherwise v3.40 on our S3s is flawless, so I'm afraid to update it.Edit:
I also should note that the NAS was originally running NTFS, but I formatted it to Linux EXT2 and the performance improved greatly. Transfers went from 6Mbps to 10.5Mbps., but it never completely eliminated the problems I was having with the other devices which is why I think it has to do with the device and/or the AV Controller app version.
If you are using an Android device, I'd suggest going to the Google Play Store and filtering the AV Controller app reviews based on your device. It might help identify if others with your device are also having issues with the app.
Lastly, check if your device has an option to keep the wifi on while in stand-by mode. This helped with my other devices a little bit as otherwise when the screen would timeout I would have to completely restart the app to restore functionality.
