[Q] DLNA sever help
Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to post this question and/or it's already been asked.
I have an old phone (Nexus 1). I want to use it as a DLNA server so that I can store music and videos on this device and then view/play this content on other devices (For this example, the Archos 101 G9 512MB).
To setup the DLNA server on the Nexus 1 I installed the 'Servers Ultimate' app and setup a simple DLNA server. I have a SD card connected to the Nexus 1 which has a couple of videos on it. I start the DLNA server on the Nexus 1 and it runs without any problems.
On the Archos 101 G9 I open the stock 'Files' app, select 'Network', select 'Media server (UPnP)', refresh the list but no server are found.
I've tried searching for solutions on Google but have yet to find anything useful.
The plan is, once setup to run within my personal network, I will setup port forwarding on my router so that I can access this content when outside of my internal network (E.g. through 3G). Not so sure if this is possible as DLNA looks more like an automatic internal system rather than having options to specify the address of my DLNA server.
Any advice would be great.
