In Rock layer turn on hardware decoding or use mPlayer

I think I've found a good combination for streaming to the Tab. I used to have an Archos 70IT, which had native smb and upnp support, which worked great with my upnp server. The software I am using is PS3 Media Server (java-based, so multiplatform capable: http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/). At first, I tried using AllShare, which sucks as a renderer. I couldn't make it work with PMS, regardless of settings in the renderer config file snippet I had grabbed from their forums.

Not to be completely beaten, I took a recommendation from this thread to install UpnPlay from the Market, as well as VPlayer. UpnPlay has its own user-agent string, which is not entirely needed in PMS, as you use it only to browse the media. To actually stream something, it sends a different user-agent string, which I've captured and put into a renderer config file (below). PMS is pretty much set as default as far as transcoding options, and it seems to be able to stream pretty much anything to VPlayer. I also tried the most recent RockPlayer, and while it has a nicer interface, the performance is sub-par. You can't enable the hardware decoding in RP unless your transcoded files are of a format that the stock video player can decode.

Code:
# ps3mediaserver renderer profile for Samsung Galaxy Tab
# Refer to PS3.conf for help

RendererName=Samsung Galaxy Tab Vplayer
RendererIcon=bravia.png
UserAgentSearch=Lavf52.88.0
Video=true

TranscodeAudio=PCM

MuxLPCMToMpeg=false

MediaInfo=true
Supported=f:avi|divx v:mp4|divx|mjpeg a:mp3|lpcm|mpa|ac3 m:video/x-msvideo  qpel:no gmc:0
EDIT: This same setup works great on my Captivate too

You did it! Works great for me following your instructions. I've been able to play back everything I've thrown at it so far (mkv, avi, 720p, ac3 audio, etc). Many thanks.

The combination of UPnPlay and VPlayer also works flawless and out-of-the box with MediaTomb. Thanks agentdr8 for the tip!

Default related but a little off topic..

is there anyone working on trying to pull the AllShare DLNA client from the Tab/Galaxy roms and porting to other devices?

i really like the app personally and would love to be able to use it on my nexus one to then share content to the tab from the nexus one

i'm very new to trying to do anything related to porting and not even sure where to start but figure first things first, nandroid and then i'm rocking to start breaking my nexus one and trying to get it working.. *found by searching.. seems no one is porting due to the copyright factor..*

does DLNA use touchwiz related libraries? i'm thinking the divx libraries may be part of it too.
i'll start a new thread if i get anywhere..

also, PS3 Media Server is a great DLNA server!! been using it since day one on the PS3 and now w/AllShare, works pretty dang good. Win7 MCE is ok but won't stream my recorded HDTV shows (has issues w/the wtv format, drm) but does do my mp4s, music and photos pretty nicely.

Why not mount your share as a local folder and just play directly from that? Pretty much any custom ROM on the N1 will have CIFS support to mount a SAMBA share.

Spelling essentials:
1) There is NO SUCH WORD as "alot" - It's "a lot"
2) The shortened form of You are is You're - NOT Your
3) Loosing & Loose have completely different meanings to Losing & Lose.

You can use Twonky on the N1 to have it share out media to your Tab.

hey guys,

I also bought a tab yesterday and couldnt get the streams running. I Tried the upnp of my nas (DNS 323) with Upnplay and Rockplayer /Vplayer.

Then i installed the Ps3 Media Server and I also created the galaxy tab conf from agentdr8 but i do not know what to do with it.

How can i force PSMS to use this galaxytab config renderer. I do not know where to put the conf file... can anybody help a noob on this? Do i need to put it somehow in a rootfolder from PS3 Mediaserver or where?
