UPNP, AIRPLAY

Hi there,

 

I am wondering, why does BB Playbook have no UPNP integration or APP available.

It's such a nice device with so many media options, but no possibility to stream content to TV, Receivers etc.

 

When will BB develope a good APP? I think everybody with a Playbook is waiting for such option!

Hi bjeunink,

No there is no official confirmation on the PlayBook features. I guess it make have some similarity of BB10 smartphone that is being released in the Q1 2013.

currently you can link your PlayBook to your HD TV using an HMDI cable.

uPNP security risk outweighs the benefits. First thing I disable on my network router.

Re: UPNP, AIRPLAY

Have you tried Plex media server?

There is a client in App World - you just need to download the server into your PC.

Re: UPNP, AIRPLAY

Yeah i tried Plex,

 

Nice interface! But stutters when streaming HD video's & it doesnt load my music libaries.

 

I am just looking for a way to stream music on my playbook to other devices like my xbox360 etc.

 

Philips has a good App for this!

 

 

I was just hoping there was an App like it for Playbook that works.
