Stream media from PC to Phone
Ever since getting my Sony BluRay player to play all my media files using Serviio as a DLNA server on my computer, I've been unsucessfully trying to get a DLNA client working on my HTC Desire (with normal xvid/mp3 files) so I can watch any of my media on any of my devices (TV in living room/computer/phone).
I've just installed GMote with the idea of using the phone as a glorified tv remote and select files for playback on my computer
My computer outputs video to a VCR and the VCR output is distributed to all TVs in the house so I thought it would be a reasonable working alternative to my problem.
But its better than that :)
GMote has a beta feature to playback direct to the phone :)
And despite a warning that it won't work with normal avi files - it turns out it can use Rockplayer for playback which will pretty much play anything :)
I'll now be able to sit in living room with Princess Fiona seemingly watching Bargin Hunt but actually streaming Star Trek :)
