I found a version of a DLNA server for a Samsung omina 2, messed around a bit with it and it works on my HD2, connecting from Windows7.

Although I'm sure the server app allows you to conf. the setting via http I can't get into this. When you fire up the server it creates an html file to access the setting but I can't get the browser to connect. (hopefully someone my have better luck)

Anyway I have configured it manually in the samsung-mediaserver.ini file and moded the network adaptor list for the HD2.

Just copy it to your storage card and launch the SamsungMediaServer.exe.

It is set up to get the media from \Storage Card\My Document

Copy the contents of the zip file in post 1 to your phone.

if you need to change the location of your media edit the samsung-mediaserver.ini file in the DLNA directory.

Once on your phone simply use file explorer to launch the samsungmediaserver.exe.

Now to get it seen under windows 7, make sure you wi-fi is on and your phone is connected to the same network as your win7 pc.
If so simply go to start/network and you should see you hd2 in the list of media devices, click on it and it sholud open WMP as show the content of your media library on your phone.

Hope that helps.

Are you still using this program? I would like a DLNA server for my TP2. I think everyone has forgotten about DLNA on a windows mobile phone.

Nice find!

Now, how do you disable it? :) I extracted the files, started samsungmediaserver.exe, but then I got nothing on the screen. I found that a process called samsungmediaserver was running (and taking 11-14 % CPU), but I couldn't kill it using that particular task manager (the default HTC task manager).

I was just going to check what the application looks like, and I didn't have WiFi turned on on the phone, and neither a Win7 PC available to check if I could connect to the phone.

Should there be some kind of a GUI on the app?

What about a Windows Mobile DLNA client?

I'd like to access my media served by a Windows 7 PC.

Thank You,
Bye

Good app but I haven't worked out either how to switch it off - once enabled it keeps the wifi & CPU active and starts chewing through the battery.

The samsung-config.html is referring to h t t p://x.x.x.x/setup.htm.
Any change to obtain this setup.htm? I will do a search on an Omnia device.

Thanks

Does anyone have any idea how to get this to work with the xbox 360. It does not pick up the HD2. My archos 5 media tablet does and it streams great just not the Xbox.

Cheers

Hi.
First time using this apps was correct and normally. I saw the HD2 icon on network page on PC. But after then , the icon's name changed to
SamsungMobileServer(HTC39) and can't access to my files.
I mean the apps worked correctly just for the first time.
Any help?
Thanks.
