I'll go ahead and post this as an answer. Android 4.2, including Sony's package on the Z1, supports Miracast - a wireless display standard that's sorta becoming a thing now. Miracast is what Sony uses to connect you to their own TV's, so it's not a proprietary Sony thing (surprisingly). In order to use Miracast, you need either a Smart TV with the feature ...

If the issue is not fixed yet, try installing "App Picker Classic" and click on Clear defaults in the app menu. It should fix the issue. At least It worked for me. A

This does not work because your phone does not receive the advertisement packets sent out by your media server and vice versa. Those packets are only forwarded within your home LAN but not over the internet (And for good reason: otherwise this would mean that every device connected to the internet would receive those advertisement packets). One way to ...

That's not really an Android question, but rather network related. But the short answer is: It should work as long as all the devices described share the same "subnet". I have a comparable setup here (TV→cable→router→cable→main-router→wireless→tablet), and can use BubbleUPnP fine to stream from my tablet to my PC. All share the same network (192.168.1.*, ...

If anyone else is seeking for a similar solution, I think doubleTwist player uses a combination of android's media scanner and it's own directory scanner to import music. So the method with mounting the SMB share kind of works here. But it doesn't import duplicate files (support told me they are thinking of doing something about that, also a workaround may ...

So I got official response from Audible team: It's Bluetooth, Auxiliary Input (audio jack, ie wired speakers) or ..burn a CD! UPnP/DLNA - not mentioned. So it's Bluetooth I guess for me. Not the preferred option :( For for completeness' sake, here is precise citation from Audible Customer Service team email: Bluetooth If your mobile device and ...

The only app I know that streams the entire audio output of your phone is AirAudio. It is capable of streaming to UPnP/DLNA speakers but does also support AirPlay. It does require root privileges, though.

You don't necessarily need DLNA for that, nor HDMI. WiFi and the right app might do as well. Take a look at e.g. Remote Gallery 3D, you cannot only have a slide show on your PC, but even manage your photos remotely. The app runs a web server on your device, which then can be accessed via any web browser (i.e. completely OS independent). Only requirement is ...

You might want to use some package inspector like e.g. App Detective to see what receivers the app in question has set up. Most likely it's acting on some broadcast, such as e.g. "sdcard mounted", to check for media, or "network changed" to check for other DLNA services. If your device is rooted, you might be interested in apps like ROM Toolbox or Autorun ...

UPnPlay works very nicely for me using Windows Media Player 12 "Play to" feature. Recent versions of BubbleUpnP support DLNA push, although it doesn't seem to support remote volume control even though it pretends to. Also has problem if you jump around in the list in WMP. aVia Media Player works ok, but no remote volume control and similar problems if you ...

Nowadays there is a plethora of methods to connect a smartphone to a SmartTV. The following methods can be used: Option 1 – Using HDTV Adapter This is the certainly most preferred method, considering the fact that Samsung has dropped support for MHL wired cables (from Note 5, if not mistaken- however MHL is a cheaper method for older devices). Usage ...

Try out Digital Photo Frame Slide Show. It has exactly the features you need as it can access a UPnP server or a SMB network drive. (I am the developer of Digital Photo Frame Slide Show.)
