I need to have my kodi-based entertainment platform account for android tablets to play high definition media files (audio and video) located on the tablet. Kodi runs on an ARMv7 board, such as the Orange Pi and is connected to a large screen (24-27 inches). So far the possibilities that I have encountered are:
- audio/video streaming
- Android screen casting (with audio)
- accessing the tablet through USB/Bluetooth/Wifi as a hard drive
- an audio/video sharing application (either existing or to be developed)
Note that the tablet is also to be used as a remote control for Kodi through Yatse – I've just discovered that app, I don't know its features thoroughly yet.
I'm not sure screen casting can occur with a non-android node however; for example, I have seen Android TV do support receiving media content from tablets and smart phones. As for streaming, I assume it would imply a high bandwidth usage. I know VLC can do that but I'd like to spare the user from any configuration/preparation manipulations. Finally I'm not sure any tablet can be shared as a disk drive, be it through USB, wireless or Bluetooth.
Does the above make sense? What possibilities are available along with pros and cons?
