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

  • 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

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).

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!

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.

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.

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.
