Setup when using the Play to application:
- If you have your home WLAN configured all you need to do is start the application - it automatically launches WLAN and connects to your WLAN
- If you have several available WLAN access points configured check before opening Play To that you are connected to the right WLAN
- The dlna device you use for playing the media needs to be connected to the same network. It can be connected either by LAN cable or wirelessly if it has its own WLAN access.
Setup when browsing media from the phone with a dlna player (e.g. Play Station 3 or Xbox 360):
- With 10.2.10 (Belle only) add the home screen widget to quickly turn the server on/off
- Go to Setting...Connectivity... Check that you are connected to right WLAN network. If not, do that from the Wi-Fi settings. When connected continue to Play to server (or DLNA server in Belle)... and set it to "On". Now the phones media server is visible in the current WLAN
- You do not need to start the Play To application
- Use your player device's user interface to browse the photos/videos/music in your phone. Refer to the player's user manual for more detailed instructions
- When you want that your media content is no longer visible just set the Play to server to "Off". The server is also automatically shut down when WLAN is changed, lost or turned off.
- There's a "Now playing" shortcut in the toolbar for quick access to last played media item.
- If you experience play-pause-buffering -cycle in video playback it is better if you connect TV to home network with LAN cable instead of WLAN. Especially if you have g-type WLAN (n-type is recommended)
- Tap the sharing indicator in the middle of the bottom menu bar any time to stop sharing any media.
- Playing DRM content is not possible with Nokia Play To
- Windows 7 users: in Windows Media Player activate from menu Stream -> Allow remote control of my Player and Allow remote control on this network (make sure you choose "Home network" as the network type because "Work network" may prevent some messages to go through!)
If you faced installing problems and you have "ODML commons repository" installed in Settings... Application installer, try removing that. It's a part of some old Maps Beta that stays on system persistently. Re-install Maps if needed
- Currently NetQin antivirus software may cause reset or even "Contact retailer"-note with Play To and some other apps as well (with Angry Birds too).
- F-Secure antivirus sw can block the upnp traffic that DLNA requires.
- If you have activated F-Secure on your phone, and want to use Play To application, you need to configure the F-Secure to allow UPnP related communications. This can be done from F-Secure -> Settings -> Firewall by setting security level to "Allow all"
- Video format (Video capture in 720p 25 fps with codecs H.264, MPEG-4) used in Nokia S^3 products' self-captured videos is not supported in all DLNA TVs
- There is some delay depending on the video's size and the player device (up to minutes with large videos)
- Sony Play Station 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 are DLNA player devices so it is not possible to push media content to them. They can be used to pull content from your mobile. See above: Setup when browsing media from the phone with a DLNA player
- Nokia Play to is meant for playing media stored on mobile i.e. it is not possible to access other DLNA media servers with it.
