Playbook and Local Network Streaming..

I have movies which I stream to other devices in my home (PS3,2 Network TV, Laptop etc. ).   Is it possible for the Playbook to join the network and watch those movies...

Re: Playbook and Local Network Streaming..

every device will be different and their sharing

 

my PC has a shared folder and I access it as

 

\\192.168.5.100\Shared\Videos

 

You will need to configure sharing on each device and know how to access it.

Re: Playbook and Local Network Streaming..

If you google your media server and "playbook" you will find someone who has connected. 

 

Basicly, you need to know the ip address of your media server and the port number for the application.  So for eg, I have a WD my book live and on my router I can look up the ipv4 network address. Let's say it is something like

\\192.168.1.xxx  

 

and the media server for this is "twonky" which uses port 9000

 

So to select the media server, I start a brower session, type in the ip address of the device followeed by a colon and the port number.  \\192.168.1.xxx:9000

 

click enter and you browser interface will come up for the media server.  bookmark to the desktop (swipe down from the top to access the menu) and you should be good to stream
