[Q] How to read movies over network ? DLNA and so on
I have a Gentoo server, where I installed Mediatomb and UShare. I have also set-up some custom VLC to help my ISP xDSL box doing some stuff.
My expensive Samsung TV can see both services, and read movies over network.
I also have a wonderfull HTC Sensation with Android, and installed Upnplay, MediaHouse, and BubbleUpnp, and all three can read files from the phone, either on the phone screen, or on the TV; but none can see my Gentoo server to read movies from there.
How to make my phone read movies from the Gentoo ? take files on the Gentoo, and show them on the screen of the phone.
How to make the phone play files to the Linux server ? The phone can send output to the TV, but now I want my phone to output to my computer (this is not for the same phone, or same network: this project is at an other place).
NFS does not work very well on Android, and Samba APK has many issues, so I am now trying DLNA.
HTC Sensation received July 27th 2011 (First HTC). Cracked Fre3vo 28th. Craked S-OFF via Revolutionary 30th with success on first attempt. LeeDrOiD 1.2.
If you need to type letters that are not on the virtual keyboard, install Gingerbread + LP.
S-OFF is not LeeDroid. Save your Recovery partition before installing ClockWorkMod.
