Nokia Play To lets you show photos and videos taken with your mobile to your friends wirelessly on your TV. Or you can listen to your favourite music stored on your mobile with your home audio system. Just launch Play To, select the device and media you want to play. No configuration is needed once WLAN is on and all devices are connected to the same network.
Nokia Play To is meant for playing media stored on mobile i.e. it is not possible to access other DLNA devices with it. We wanted to concentrate on creating a solution for easily enjoying mobile media on a big TV screen or with an audio system. If you are familiar with DLNA technology we are supporting push and server functionalities with our current implementation.
New in this release (29-Jun-11):
● Server support for Xbox
● Video progress bar buffering indication
● Improved WLAN transmission throughput (may help making video streaming smooth)
● LG Blu-ray player support fixed
● Many minor fixes / improvements
What you need:
A network with WLAN access is needed as well as a DLNA capable playing device (e.g. TV, A/V amplifier, Blu-ray player or PS3 game console). All devices including mobile must be connected to the same network.
Supported phone models: Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7, Nokia E7, Nokia N8 and Nokia X7.
Setup when using the Play To application:
● If you have your home WLAN configured all you need to do is start the application – it automatically launches WLAN and connects to your WLAN
● If you have several available WLAN access points configured check before opening Play To that you are connected to the right WLAN
● The dlna device you use for playing the media needs to be connected to the same network. It can be connected either by LAN cable or wirelessly if it has its own WLAN access.
Setup when browsing media from the phone with a dlna player (e.g. Play Station 3):
● Go to Setting…Connectivity… Check that you are connected to right WLAN network. If not, do that from the WLAN settings. When connected continue to Media server… Share content and set it to “On“. Now the phones media server is visible in the current WLAN
● You do not need to start the Play To application
● Use your player device’s user interface to browse the photos/videos/music in your phone. Refer to the player’s user manual for more detailed instructions
● When you want that your media content is no longer visible just set the Media server… Share content… to “Off“. The server is also automatically shut down when WLAN is changed, lost or turned off.
● There’s a “Now playing” shortcut in the toolbar for quick access to last played media item.
● Tap the sharing indicator any time to stop sharing any media.
● Playing DRM content is not possible with Nokia Play To
● The application displays only self captured videos by default. There’s an option in connectivity settings Setting…Connectivity…Media server… Video support to have all your video content available in Play To. You need to restart the application before the change takes effect. NOTE!: it depends on your player device which video formats it can play.
● Windows 7 users: in Windows Media Player activate from menu Stream -> Allow remote control of my Player and Allow remote control on this network (make sure you choose “Home network” as the network type because “Work network” may prevent some messages to go through!)
● Play Station 3 – there’s an issue with music and videos; they may stop playback after a while (will be fixed in next release)
● Xbox – there’s an issue when there’s >>500 media type items (will be fixed in next release)
● The user interface look and feel is not finalized
● Video format (Video capture in 720p 25 fps with codecs H.264, MPEG-4) used in Nokia S^3 products’ self-captured videos is not supported in all DLNA TVs
● There is some delay depending on the video’s size and the player device (up to minutes with large videos)
● Sony Play Station 3 is a player device so it is not possible to push media content to it. PS3 can be used to pull content from your mobile. To enable this, please go to Settings, Connectivity, Media server and put Share content ‘on’.
● Nokia Play To is meant for playing media stored on mobile i.e. it is not possible to access other DLNA media servers with it.
● If you have run DEEP FACTORY SETTINGS either with “the code” or from phone’s Factory settings it is currently not possible to re-install Nokia Play To.
