Video Z1 Throw via WiFi problem.

Hi guys,

I have a some problems with Throw function in my Z1. Firstly I want to sorry for my poor english. I wish you can understand me.

I have a PC and VAIO laptop, and Throw via WiFi doesnt work. If I enable Bluetooth it works correctly, but you know, range of BT is terrible, so I want stream music via WiFi.

If I use PC Companion, wireless connect work perfectly, I can copy files, and update my phone, but when I use Throw, and select PC or laptop via WiFi it loading for while and finally nothing happens. Even sound timer always display "00:00". When I click Play button, it's again the same - loading and nothing.

In Windows Media Player I turn on Stream->Allow remote devices to control my computer , and in further options "Allow all" in sharing streams.

I fight with that since 3 hours, and I give up... Anyone any idea ?

I have no idea what you're trying to do but :
Throw means throwing informations with your phone not sharing or taking control of another media.
With my Z1 i can throw music or photos to my TV for exemple (that simply sends and plays the music on my TV).

What do you want to do exactly?
French Android Games Tester Youtube Channel
Shou Screen Recorder for Android
Sony Xperia Z1 - C6903 - KK 4.4.2 Stock ROM Rooted by [NUT] - Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Stock ROM

I want to be able to throw music to my laptop or desktop while all three devices *Z1 Laptop Desktop* are connected to same wifi network.

Also what is the best cheapest way to connect my phone screen to my non-smart TV? I do not opt from ChromeCast

Hey there, guys.

I'm facing this problem too. For some reason "Throw" stopped working or works when it wants.
Long story short, i have .757 NUT's, Rooted, LB and Xposed installed with not else than Super User Mod.

When i try to use Throw, i can't find my Samsung Smart TV (In the past it was able to); funny thing is that i cant use Throw for watch videos on my PC using XBMC, but XBMC can access to my content vía uPnP and can reproduce the videos, phoos, etc. I use skifta which does "the same" than Throw and it works perfecly, it can find my TV and can reproduce the videos, but i can't understand why my naive APP which use DLNA wont work.

Any fix or workaround?
