Nokia BetaLabs Nokia Play to v10.02(3) S^3 SymbianOS 9.5 Signed
New release is out! The new version of Nokia Play To includes Xbox support and many other small improvements here and there.
Nokia Play To lets you show photos and videos taken with your mobile to your friends wirelessly on your TV. Or you can listen to your favourite music stored on your mobile with your home audio system. Just launch Play To, select the device and media you want to play. No configuration is needed once WLAN is on and all devices are connected to the same network.
Nokia Play To is meant for playing media stored on mobile i.e. it is not possible to access other DLNA devices with it. We wanted to concentrate on creating a solution for easily enjoying mobile media on a big TV screen or with an audio system. If you are familiar with DLNA technology we are supporting push and server functionalities with our current implementation.
Supported phone models: Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7, Nokia E7, Nokia N8 and Nokia X7.
New in this release (29-Jun-11):
Server support for Xbox (see More info -tab... Known issues)
Video progress bar buffering indication
Improved WLAN transmission throughput (may help making video streaming smooth)
LG Blu-ray player support fixed
Many minor fixes / improvements
Getting started step by step
Install Nokia Play To
1-IMPORTANT NOTE!: If you face a problem in installation DO NOT RUN DEEP FACTORY SETTINGS neither with "the code" or from phone's Factory settings. If you have done that it is currently not possible to re-install Nokia Play To.
2-Make sure you have active data connection or you are in reach of WLAN coverage during the installation process. Installation uses Symbian Smart Installer, which will download and install required components if needed. Additional download may be required based on your phone configuration.
3-You must have time & date correct in the mobile
4-If you have Nokia Big Screen v.0.96 from Beta Labs installed on your device it needs to be removed manually from Settings... Application manager... Installed apps. before installing Nokia Play To. You can re-install Big Screen from Ovi.
5-If you still face problems, try both ways:
- install by opening the sis-file with file browser
- install the application from Settings... Application manager...Installation files
1-Switch on your home networks' WLAN if not on by default
2-Switch on WLAN in your phone in Setting... Connectivity... WLAN and select your home network. Then select Connect and enter the password if needed and press Ok.
3-Make sure your dlna player is connected to the same network (either with LAN cable or wirelessly with a WLAN access point. ). Usually once connected the player is ready to receive media without e.g. activating dlna. Refer to the player's user manual for more information and troubleshooting
Once you have the system up and running you don't need to connect the WLAN manually as long as from the available WLANs you have only your home WLAN configured and the phone is not in offline mode. So basicly next time all you need to do is start Nokia Play To and let it connect for you.
