Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is the fast growing protocol for sharing media content over various devices at home. And as of the beginning of this year we already had more than 9,000 different devices with “DLNA Certified” status. Considering this ever growing popularity of DLNA service, makers of various high-end devices are coming with DLNA capability making it easier for users to share media with other DLNA enabled devices at home.
While many Android, WP7 and BlackBerry devices support DLNA capability, Nokia somehow wasn’t much interested in it as it is now. The scenario has changed. If you own a Nokia Symbian phone, you can stream all of your media stored on your mobile (pictures, videos and music) on to any of your DLNA enabled home devices like TV, Home theatre, Blu-Ray Player, PS3 gaming console etc. The only requirement being all of them connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is possible with a new Nokia Play To app from Beta labs.
Nokia Play to work well on Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01 and Nokia X7 mobile phones. Usage is pretty much straightforward. Skip past the break to watch the video demonstration of the Nokia Play To for Nokia Symbian^3 device.
