Can Android's user run any video files on laptop via Bluetoo pairing ?

Hi,

My Android device's memory is far too low to save video files into it. Thus, if my Android device's Bluetooth gets connected with my laptop Bluetooth, then I can navigate my laptop's desktop, and then run the video files from there on my Android device.

I don't know of a way to do what you want via Bluetooth but if both the laptop and the Android device were networked together (such as by connecting both to the same router via wifi) then it would be possible for the Android device to access video files from folders on the laptop.

Thanks a lot,
Yes, both my devices(My Android mobile and laptop) are wirelessly connected to the same access point, thus how to let my Android device have access to the video files from the folders on the laptop.
I know that With a home-group I can only share files and printers with other computers running Windows 7.

Probably the easiest way would be to setup a DLNA compliant video server on the laptop, then connect to it using a DLNA client from the Android device.

Here's a tutorial on how to setup Win 7 Windows Media Player as a DLNA compliant video server: http://www.pcworld.com/article/24588...dows_7_pc.html

Then you'll need to find a DLNA client to run on your Android device. I've used one called simply "DLNA Player" that you can find in the Play Store.

You mean I will only need to setup a DLNA compliant media server on my laptop.

Also, I will only need to look for a DLNA client, and install on my Android device
I found these while looking for DLNA,
DLNA server
DLNA player App
AnDLNA


But how my Android device will be able to navigate my lapotp looking for a video file. Must both my devices(Android, and Laptop are connected wirelessly to the same access points)?

Do you think the video file will be slowly running on my Android device since my Android device will receive the streaming via sharing across the Web?

We already said that both the laptop and the Android device would be connected to the same router via wifi. Isn't that correct?

The DLNA client will be able to list and navigate the videos that are available from the server.

The web is not used in this scenario, the video will stream from the laptop to the Android device thru the router, no internet involvement.

Your laptop already has Windows Media Player so you just need to follow the tutorial I linked to in order to set that up as your media server. Download the DLNA client from the Play Store. You could set this up in about 5 minutes and try it for yourself instead of waiting for answers in a forum.

I solved that problem with a 64GB MicroSD card. If your device has a MicroSD card slot, it's worth investigating.

Thanks a lot,

The problem is now in Android mobile phone, how could it be navigate the videos shared on my WLM for my lapotp.

First:I’ve already organized my files into My Videos folders, and shared a folder included in the Video library.

Second: I lunched the WMP, I selected the option Automatically allow devices to play my media.
Third:
I clicked the Stream drop-down menu again, and select More streaming options. Next: I enabled the Media programs.
NB:
There is no list of devices on the network that are capable of accessing the library on that the screen show below, then how to let my Android mobile to access the library shared.



Finally: I have installed the DLNA Player on my Android mobile from google store. However, how can I access the library (video) shared on the Windows Media player on My laptop.

Both my laptop, and Android are connected wirelessly to the same access points

When I lunched the DLNA Player installed on my Android mobile, I found that the name of my laptop 'Mohammad-Pc' followed with the existing user account name 'Mohammad' is listed there.



However, when clicked on it, this error showed for me.

Sorry, the application DLNA Player(process com.toxsl.dlnaplayer)has stopped unexpectedly. Please try agian.

Force close Report.

I have no explanation as to why the DLNA Player app force closes on your Android Device. You could try uninstalling the DLNA app (uninstall from Settings-Apps but use the Clear data and Clear cache options first) then re-install the app. If it still force closes then that app may not be compatible with your device. You will need to look for other DLNA apps in the Play store that are compatible with your Android device.

You're almost there!
