Default Upnp/dlna Android app capable of streaming mkv

Hi all, would of put this in android general but can't seem to see it :-\

Anyway, I'm looking for the above, a uonp/dlna compatible app that is capable of streaming mkvs to a ps3.i can play them on my phone via mx player and the like but when it comes to streaming it fails, unsupported or corrupted data shows in the ps3 whenni know for a fact it can stream Mkvs. I have tried airsyncs airplay option, skifta and joses media server and none seem to work, anyone any ideas or other options I can try?

I'm running ParanoidAndroid and Siyah/twrp if that's any help.
Thanks in advance

And mods if there is a general android section and I've missed it feel free to move this

hey had this problem a while back, after a lot of experimenting with different apps, it turns out none of the apps could successfully "beam" a mkv file, even if both the phone and xbox can support the file.

The workaround that i finally got to was to host a media server from the phone, and access the mkv file via the server. APP: Pixel-DMS.

Works great on my xbox !! should work on the ps3 as well

Have you tried this ArkMC DLNA UPnP Media Center app.It really helps me a lot Because it allows us to easily access, stream, share, manage and enjoy multimedia content, such as pictures, music and videos throughout myhome network.Give it a try.Here is the Playstore

Im looking for something that works the opposite actually, Does anyone know of an app that will allow streaming from a pc to my galaxys3?

I used to use allshare when i was running official samsung rom, but now i use Paranoid android and unfortunately cannot use it anymore.

I use a program called ps3 media server, which allows any content even MKV files to be streamed, ps3 media server is veiwable on ps3, xbox 360 and i could see it and use it on allshare.

now all i need is an app to allow me to pick up this media server on my paranoid setup.

any suggestions? thanks.

I use PS3MediaServer in conjunction with Serviio to steam to my Xbox and phone.

1. Download PS3MS and Serviio on PC
2. Stream to gaming console. For streaming to android, download Skifta or ServiGo on Play. You can manage your Serviio console from your droid using ServiiDroid.

MKV works flawlessly.

iMedia Share can do it. Also stock samsung video player can do it too.

My home environment is:
Laptop - with Windows Media Player and Foobar2000 as servers
Tablet (galaxy tab) - with ArkMC as controller, server and player.
Samsung TV (as player and renderer)

I had an issue - I was not able to "Play-to" and to share MKV files!
I have tried just siple renaming MKV to AVI, after this trick it was possible to use "Play-to" to send file to my TV. And it played back well.

Maybe this would work for you.

ArkMC can use 3rd party players. I use Mobo Player and MX Player. So it supports MKV formats to. And ArkMC server can share MKV files to.
