    UPnP/DLNA Player for android?

    Helllo, I was wondering if someone could help me find an app if available.

    I was wondering if there is an application that can play my music library that is stored on my ReadyNAS/Networked attached storage. My home setup consists of a ReadyNAS that is DLNA compliant, and currently streams both Audio and Video to my Playstation 3 and other PCs/Mac in my home. This setup has worked flawlessly and I would like to use my Motorola Droid to stream music and maybe even video from my ReadyNAS. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of an app that does this well, any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    The Astro file manager has a network add-on feature now that *should* be able to do this but, in my experience it won't allow playback of the files.
    You can browse your shares fine over WiFi but you just get errors when you click on one to attempt playback/viewing.

    It's as close as I've seen so far to do what you want though.

    Maybe someday....?

    I suggest you check MyCast your digital media with Orb 2.0 remote pc access software.

    They advertise "it's your media, enjoy it everywhere"

    I've tried Orb. It's actually fairly good with music but really crappy with video. I didn't really 'need' the video streaming though.

    Infinate Stream

    I am currently developing a media streaming app for Android.

    It's called "Infinate Stream" and is in Beta on the Android Marketplace.

    It doesn't do UPnP yet, but it does do DAAP and will do UPnP eventually.

    I use it to stream my collection of over 25000 music tracks to my phone when I'm out and about.

    You uninstalled too soon.

    This error happened because you never went into the settings and chose "Phone" as the media renderer. Had you done this you would have found that AndroMote works very well. However, AndroMote will only play audio streams

    If you want to play video on your phone as well as audio, then the best way (without cifs support) is to use VLC Stream & Convert. This is advertised as a mere remote control for VLC, but it also handles streaming direct to the phone. Have to make sure you set up VLC and firewall properly on the server then connect with your phone to use phone as a remote, or to watch/listen on the phone.

    This will not work because file managers such as Astro simply send a file path to the video player. Astro itself can understand the samba protocol, so can see and transfer files from samba sever. However, when you click on a file to open it, it sends the samba path to the video player, but the video player does not understand this protocol and so fails.

    The only way to make this work is to install a ROM with cifs support, or to compile/find a cifs module for your specific kernel. Then you can simply mount samba shares to your phones file system, so that all programs can access them as they would any files on your device.
