Stream content wirelessly

Learn how to stream your photos, videos, and music to your DLNA devices wirelessly.

About DLNA play

Select Menu icon > DLNA play.

Would you like to see the photos or videos in your phone on another device, such as your TV? Or listen to the music on your phone through your home stereo? With DLNA play, you can stream your media content to your DLNA devices wirelessly.

You need the following:

  • A Wi-Fi network. For best results, your wireless router should be connected to your DLNA device over a cable connection.

  • Wi-Fi on in your phone, and the phone has to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network that your DLNA device is on.

There are different types of DLNA devices. If you can connect to the device on your phone and can control the streaming, the device is a renderer. If you can view the media on your phone from your device, the device is a player. To find out what kind of DLNA device you have, you can also check the device user guide.
