UPNP Browser connects to all media enabled devices on your network and allows streaming content directly to the phone or tablet. With this App it is possible to view pictures, play music or watch a video stored on a UPNP enabled device.
Video support is limited, it is recommended to install MXPlayer or VPlayer as these are specialised video playback Apps with far superior CODEC support. If installed UPNP Browser will allow you to select you’re referred player instead of using the native VideoView.
The intention of the developer was to create a lightweight UPNP application, the APK is less than 1MB. There is no persistent storage of browsed UPNP results, no cache file consuming valuable storage space! All UPNP browsed results are live which also means that there is no fancy album or cover art, just simple folder and file icons. Movie, music and picture files appear as scorllable lists, see the screenshots for an idea of what to expect.
This app does not claim to be DNLA certified and is in the early stages of development. Please help the developer by providing constructive comments that will assist in further improving the App. All feature requests will be considered!
PLEASE NOTE: UPNP Browser does not contain any media, all pictures/photo's/music and movies are streamed from UPNP Devices located on your network. For example PC's set to share content, NAS boxes, XBMC/KODI, Twonky Media etc.
# full network access - for obvious reasons, needs to connect to and stream from UPNP devices
# allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception - required to contact UPNP devices
# prevent tablet from sleeping - you wouldn't want it to switch off whilst streaming!
