This tutorial will show you how to set up MediaStreamer on Windows.

MediaStreamer is a DNS service designed to improve your streaming experience. If your device doesn’t natively support VPN, MediaStreamer is a great alternative for streaming.

To use MediaStreamer smoothly, you must register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website. This allows ExpressVPN to recognize your IP address and grant your device access to MediaStreamer.

Note: MediaStreamer is not a VPN and does not offer the privacy and security benefits of a VPN. You cannot change locations with MediaStreamer.

2. Get your MediaStreamer IP addresses
3. Open Network Connections settings
4. Configure your DNS servers


1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website

Go to the ExpressVPN DNS settings page. If prompted, enter your ExpressVPN credentials and select Sign In.

Enter your account credentials, then click "Sign In."

Enter the verification code that is sent to your email.

Under IP address registration, select Register my IP address. If you see “registered” next to your IP address, there is no need to select this option again.

Next to "My IP address," click "Register my IP address."

Toggle Automatically register my IP address on. This is recommended as it automatically tracks changes to your IP address.

Toggle "Automatically register my IP address" on.

When you enable Automatically register your IP address, be sure to keep your registered IP address updated by signing in to your account on the ExpressVPN website or using the ExpressVPN app while connected to the same network as your Windows device. This grants the devices on your network continued access to MediaStreamer.
