Video Review #1297 Summary

Sponsored by: A.C. Ryan
Review category: Audio
Manufacturer info: More info

The A.C. Ryan Veolo Smart Android Hub is a media center with internet access and much more. It supports just about every video, audio and image format and comes with an HDMI port for resolutions up to 1080p with 5.1 channel audio. This is an audio/video/techno buffs dream come true. And to make the best of it it comes with the Android OS. Veolo will do just about anything and it's by far one of the best media style players on the market!




Yes we heard the news about AC Ryan Europe HQ going bankrupt. This is where all their product development and firmware upgrades developed. So looks like buyers will have to accept this.

Xtreamer however is still doing fine. Over 500,000 media players sold since 2008. Get the world's most highly rated Full HD 3D Media Player Streamer from http://www.xtreamer.com.sg now.


i am using AC rayan HD player and is good for me
i am planning to buy AC rayan Veolo but i have a question,
i used to watch some TV channel on my laptop (by typing the URL for these channels), now Does Veolo support watching a streaming channel (URL site)?
i hope u can answer this question, and if not which device can support this?


Rodney, I think that this looks like a great product; however, when I contacted AC Ryan in The Netherlands they told me the following:

Thanks a lot for your interest in our product. Unfortunately we do not sell our products in Canada or USA. Therefore I think it will be hard for you to find a reseller in your neighborhood. You can of course order from us directly but this will most likely result in high shipping costs. Anyhow you can get an offer from my colleagues by sending an email to: [email protected]

State your address and which product you would like.

Sorry that we cannot help you better in this case – if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us again.


Ice Cream Sandwich?
Dual DTV Tuner 7 day EPG?
Where is the Hard Drive slot?
Gigabit Ethernet?
We need an UBER UBER KICKASS LEVEL to cater for the really fully featured media boxes,this one's missing a few features.


Where can I buy one of these?

Yes its a shame they use android 2.2 in stead of 2.3 which is much faster en contains a flash player.
For the rest it is a very nice product with a very special remote control. ;)


hey rodney, i just watched this veolo review of yours the other day...and i must say that this thing seems like its what ive been waiting for, for so long! im so glad you rated it kick ass. i have a couple questions though. how confident are you to say it will be getting an os upgrade? that would be great if it did, honestly id be happy either way, but im just curious. Also, im having a hard time finding a place to buy it other than on that ebay store, which is selling it from canada. im guessing cause its so new? thx rodney for your time, keep up the awesome work! :)

I'm not sure when they'll be upgrading this unit but they've been great at upgrades on their other devices. They did indicate to me an update was coming, but not 100% on when/what it is exactly. Just keep checking their website for upgrades.

Buy from me here: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/120823227009?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649


Can you sideload apps?
