You will need to look for other DLNA apps in the Play store that are compatible with your Android device.

You're almost there!

Thanks a lot,

But when you followed my steps I followed, you saw them correct.

Also, I am quite surprised how my Android mobile will navigate the libarary shared on the WMP on my laptop as long as the Android device is not listed in the list of devices on the network I connected to.

Besides,
have you seen my screen shots posted previously, this error showed me when clicked on 'Mohammad-PC: Mohammad'
Sorry, the application DLNA Player(process com.toxsl.dlnaplayer)has stopped unexpectedly. Please try agian.

There are two options:
'Force close', and 'Report'

By the way, I uinstalled that DLNA player, and installed another one called "AnDLNA", however, when open the 'Mohammad-Pc: Mohammad'. I found all videos were listed, however, they seem as though they are are unknown extension files genre, thus AnDLNA could play them. They are '.AVI, .FLV

That is a different issue entirely. You need to either convert those videos to a format that the player recognizes or find another DLNA player that supports those video formats. Personally, I have all my videos on my server in the .mp4 format.

This app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lna.ctrl&hl=en will handle the connection to the media server but lets you designate which player to use on your Android device so you can find a non-DLNA player that supports the video formats you wish to use then use this app to connect to the server and select which video you wish to view. It will then prompt you as to which player to use and list the ones you have installed. Just select the player that supports that video format. One player I have used that supports many different video formats is this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...layer.ad&hl=en

In the US we have saying, "There is more than 1 way to skin a cat." which simply means there is more than 1 way to accomplish something.

Thanks a lot,
First of all, what brand of a mobile phone do you have if that makes difference in the steps applied?
NB: While playing the video files on my Android mobile, this will account from the credit of my Internet subscription. if so, then I don't think this good idea since I will google those video files on the internet and will run them on the internet, for instance on Youtube.com since those files are just video files downloaded from the internet and archived on my external hard disk.

But why all those video file formats are working well on the WMP on my laptop.

Also, I really converted one file into a mp4, and when I copied into the MicroSD card for my Samsund mobile, then it was working well with the QQplayer. However, "AnDLNA" didn't support the Mp4, nor the other formats.
I am quite sure that the QQplayer program will run most(if not all) of those formats, but how could I let it access them as long as I will access those format within 'AnDLNA'.


With respect to DLNA Player which will handle the connection to the media server but lets me designate which player to use on your Android device so I can find a non-DLNA player that supports the video formats I wish to use then use this app to connect to the server and select which video I wish to view. It will then prompt me as to which player to use and list the ones I have installed.
then, you need me to install both DLNA Player and MX Player. If so, then I think the DLNA player will only be able to see(naviagete) the libarary shared on my laptop. Then, how can I will designate(choose) MX Player to play the unsupported formats. IS there any option inside the DLNA player. I really installed DLNA player before on my android(as its screen shot below) and it couldn't even navigate the library shared on my laptop.
Have you had a look at this screen shot of DLNA player I used before, and even didn't open the library.

The combination of GinkoDLNA and MX Player works very well on both my LG G2 phone and my Nexus 7 tablet. I can connect to the media server and navigate thru the videos using the GinkoDLNA app and when I select one to watch I am prompted to select which player it should send the video to in order to be played. It's a standard Android dialog and you can select the desired player and choose "Always" or "Just Once". If you answer "Always" then it will not ask anymore and will use that Player for that video format until you change it. If you answered "Always" to a player that won't work with that video format then you need to go into Settings->Apps on your Android device, find the player app, touch it to open it's properties, then click on "Clear Defaults" to clear any file formats that player has been set as the Default app for.

Those video file formats work well on your laptop because WMP or whatever you use to play those videos has the right codecs to play them. In order to play them on your Android device it also needs to have a player with the necessary codecs installed. Codec is short for "compressor" "decompressor" and enables a player to decode a video format in order to play it.

Thanks a lot,

In your first post you didn't say 'GinkoDLNA', however, you said ' DLNA Player ', which really even couldn't open(navigate) the shared library on my laptop when I installed it on my Android(I don't know if that is DLNA Plyer is powered by ginkgosoft or not) (Have you seen its screen shot post before?)

Thus, you will need me to install both DLNA Player and MX Player. If so, I really installed DLNA player before on my android(as its screen shot posted before) and it couldn't even navigate the library shared on my laptop.
Have you had a look at this screen shot of DLNA player I used before, and even didn't open the library.
You need me to install it again after I have uninstalled it.

You couldn't get the DLNA Player app to work on your device so I provided a link to a different app here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lna.ctrl&hl=en This app is called GinkoDLNA and is a different app than the one in my first post. The first app I referenced is this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...naplayer&hl=en

Thanks a lot Yes, but DLNA Player powered by 'ToXSL Technologies Pvt Ltd' was only listed when looking for DLNA player on the Google Store on my Android.
However, DLNA Player powered by 'ginkgosoft' was not listed at all. I will need to type in 'GinkgoDLNA Player' instead of 'DLNA Player'

I am now replying to your replies while on my laptop, and not on my Android
