UPnPlay is an Alpha release and apparently still a bit glitchy, but still some positive reviews.

A similar question exists on stackoverflow http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3682430/android-developing-plugins-for-media-sharing (For which I gave the info I was aware of)

All Share is an app on samsung phones that plays & downloads DLNA media from a DLNA server. All Share can also be used to play files of the phone onto a DLNA device, or stream files from a DLNA server via the phone then play back on a 3rd DLNA device.

I've looked into 2player and it seems to work well (not great thou).

Does it also work as a client? I am interested in watching movies stored on my pc on my android device... –  Pitto May 23 '11 at 7:22
    
yes but your server needs to transcode certain files such as .mkv –  nLL May 23 '11 at 16:08
    
This software is LOVELY! I just need to find a good server on the pc side... I saw that Windows Media Player works fine on Windows 7 side... I'd like to use Xbmc but I had no luck: Can't see the library of it from phone. –  Pitto May 23 '11 at 16:13

ArkMC mutlimedai application. Besides media player it has media server, controller and renderer functionality. Also it has 3rd party player support - very usefull feature, you can use any player installed at your device, and play almost any file format.

You can use Skifta. It will play files from DLNA server in any player installed on your device. Also it can be a media server and controller. The description says the app is DLNA Certified.

I have been using MediaHouse, UPnP/ DLNA Browser with Plex Media Server (get the beta with DLNA) on my home computer and it works great!

share

uPNP works perfectly for me for streaming. I use the stock video / Mobo video alongside that and have been able to stream anything I've put on my server.

share

Sure, you need an UPnP controller, like BubbleUPnP and an player (e.g. MX Player). That's all what's need to stream via UPnP. At least it works well for me with MediaTomb.

share

Also using ArkMC to get content from my WD Live Book and Win PC. Works good for me.

share

For this purpose I've used Sklift and some other DLNA apps.But Now I'm using ArkMC because it let me to stream photos and 1080p videos Flawlessly.
