How to Stream videos from Galaxy S3 to PS3 via AllShare/DLNA

Postby lydia622520 » Tue Jul 31, 2012 8:31 am

Are you a Samsung Galaxy S3 user or planning to get one? If so, you may know AllShare application is Samsung's unique software client. In fact, DLNA is concealed under the somewhat friendlier name AllShare. And DLNA is a protocol that provides a hassle-free way of sharing all the photos and movies on your handset, by wirelessly streaming them to compatible devices. Then do you know how to use AllShare/DLNA on your Galaxy S3?

From Google searching, I found a user want to stream video files from Galaxy S3 to PS3 via DLNA. After many attempts I eventually managed to get an easy way. Below is the concise steps for you.

1) Connect your PS3 and Galaxy S3 to Wi-Fi

DLNA operates over Wi-Fi, so it's essential that the devices you want to connect are both using the same Wi-Fi network. If you have multiple wireless routers in your home, you'll need to make sure the Galaxy S3 and PS3 are singing from the same song sheet -- so to speak. Once you're done, load up the AllShare application -- you can find it in your app drawer.

2) Configure your PS3 for media sharing

Fire up your PS3 console and scroll across to Settings. Scroll down to Internet Settings, and then down to Media Server Connection. Make sure this is enabled -- if it isn't, your PS3 won't be able to 'see' your Galaxy S3.

3) Transfer videos to PS3 from Galaxy S3

Once the connection is established between your console and phone, the media on your Galaxy S2 becomes listed in the relevant section of the PS3's media bar. Scroll across to the relevant section of the PS3's user interface and locate your phone in the menu. Click the Videos folder and find the movie you wish to stream. As with musical tracks, you can use the PS3 pad to pause, rewind and fast-forward through the film -- just like a proper remote control -- even though the actual footage is stored on your handset. What’s more, you can also stream movies to TV with PS3 via DLNA.

Hope the solution can do you a favor anyhow. Well, if you are a Galaxy S III newbie, and wanna transfer video files to Galaxy S3 for playback, you need to make sure the videos are in Galaxy S III video format: MP4, DivX, XviD, WMV, H.264, H.263. If not, you can go to download and install the Galaxy S III Video Converter. With it, you can batch convert any videos to Galaxy S3 playable format at super fast speed with the CUDA/AMD technology support.

PS: If you are Mac users, please get the Galaxy S III Video Converter for Mac.
