Sharing your media using DNLA technology

What is DLNA?

It stands for the Digital Living Network Alliance. It's the software that allows you to share your media across your devices, using a cable or wirelessly through an internet connection.

On some devices this service is called All Share or Media Centre.

What kind of things can I use DLNA for?

Using DNLA on your phone means experiencing your saved music, videos and photos on another device. You can play a movie you made on your phone through your TV or listen to your phone's playlist on your games console.

How do I use it?

In general, all devices will need to be DLNA compatible, this will be mentioned in the manufacturer's specifications. However, on certain devices, you can use a LAN cable to create a connection.
