On your site you have showed “Flawed EZCast media streamer can let hackers run malware on your home network”

Is there a safe media streamer that I can buy instead ?

Build your own. It should be possible with the equipment you have lying around. assuming it’s not too ancient it doesn’t feature HDMI or applicable connectors. A “common” deployed solution would be a raspberry pi running something like plex. I personally loathe such a use as it doesn’t make use of anything that makes the Pi “special” – the GPIO pins. As it’s design brief was a cheap solution for teaching small children hardware development – or a cheap prototyping solution – I feel using it for applications that can readily be fullfilled by off the shelf hardware to be a collosal waste of it’s potential.

Many of the “USB stick” computers would possible be quite suitable for purpose.
