Installed 'Movies' but when I'm connected to my wifi I can't stream the movie clips, without wifi it's fine. Just wondered if anyone else has had this problem and what they needed to configure on the router to make it work
I'm looking for a way to send streaming movies on my HTC One (primarily Redbox Instant) to my Panasonic Viera smart TV. I can send Youtube videos to it so it seems it may be possible. But I don't see any options on Redbox Instant for doing this. I've tried using the mhl adapter and it just doesn't work good at all and I'd rather go wireless through DNLA anyway. Since I already have a smart TV, I'd rather not have to buy chromecast, but if that works I may have to.
Prior to the 2.2 update if I was streaming music (Pandora or similar) or listening to MP3's (HTC's music player) while I was using the Google Navigation feature to get somewhere, my music would fade out when Google Needed to give me driving instructions, then fade back up afterwards. This was a brilliant feature to me. Yesterday, I found myself using music and navigation for the first time since my late Friday 2.2 update. Now, it appears I have to choose what I want to hear. If music is playing and the navigation needs to give me instructions, it just stops the music altogether - it doesn't start back. OR I can mute the navigation instructions and just listen to the music. But they are working together the way they used to. I haven't received a phone call while playing/streaming music to see if this issue goes with that too. I'll check it at home tonight and see and report back.
I just bought a 2TB Western Digital MyBook Live. For those of you who do not know what it is let me briefly explain. It is a 2TB drive that looks like any other WD MyBook. The only difference is it connects directly to your router (not to your computer) and it allows me to have my own personal cloud right here in my house.
Among other things, I put my music library on the share so I can access from wherever I am. I know that there is an app called WD2Go by WD, and this allows me to access/play my music, but I do not like the format.
I also do NOT want to upload my music to Google Music in order to have it stream to my device.
I want to know if there is a way or an app, to stream my music directly from my own source right to my phone.
I have my primary android phone (Nexus 4) and an old android phone (MyTouch 4g). I would like to set up an "AirPlay" like system on a nice (but outdated) stereo system using DLNA. I was thinking about doing this by using my primary phone as the Digital Media Server (DMS), and my old android phone as the Digital Media Player (DMP).
See Digital Living Network Alliance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for more info on DLNA.
The primary phone - DMS, would be used to send the music to the old phone - DMP, which would then output the music via 3.5mm jack into the aux on my stereo. The only downfall I can think of to this setup would be the fact that I would have to dedicate a phone to the stereo, but that's not a problem because I don't use it anyway!
I'm wondering how I am suppose to download music and music on my new phone. I am not very computer savvy and keep getting different info from people. I also need to know how I can get either java or mic on my phone to enable me to chat.These are the two reasons I bought the phone and I cannot do either.Any other info you can provide would be great!
when I want to stream one particular song I noticed that the Google Play Music app downloads and caches the previous/next few songs for quicker access. How can I prevent this? It uses a lot of data and I usually only want to listen to the one song I chose to stream.
For example if I play a 6 mb song i noticed it uses about 40 mb to stream just that one song. Then I selected a different song to stream and immediately went into settings > download queue and noticed it was loading more songs than the one I requested. I only want to listen to the 1 song I chose, so how can I prevent the other songs from loading? As far as I can see there is no way in the app's settings but there has to be another way to stop this inconvenience.
P.S. I have a T999 galaxy s3 running on stock rooted ICS
So I tried googling and poking through a ton of different forums (this one, nexusone forums, etc.) regarding formatting video to be used on the DInc. The general consensus was to use Handbrake with the iPhone settings to convert video. But that was taking forever. What is weird is that I bought the Sandisk 32GB card, and I put a number of copies of the new season of Dr Who on it (all avi's, unsure what codecs were used for it though). They're all smaller than the native resolution of the phone (something like 366xsomething). But neither Meridian nor DoubleTwist can play them. I wasn't sure if it was card related, so I moved the files off the card onto the phone (which took forever, btw) and it still would freeze up opening the video. So I'm guessing I'm still going to have to convert the files, which is fine - but does anyone know of software better than Meridian to do so?
It's funny, I watched the entirety of Clerks on my LG Voyager (after converting it to 3gp or whatever that weird format was), and doing that seemed simpler than watching videos on my DInc. As an aside, we were watching the iPhone4 vs EVO video on my fiance's MotoDroid, standing outside a VzW store talking it up with an old co-worker of mine from when I used to work there, and the video froze. She shut it off, then turned it back on, and it started power cycling (M loop, whatever you want to call it). I spent 3 hours digging through forums looking for a way to recover her phone without factory reset, couldn't get anything to work, so we factory reset and it continued to power cycle. Totally bricked. Anyone know if this is normal?
We already ordered a replacement phone for her, as it was stock to begin with. Just find it rather weird, especially since it had happened shortly after we installed the latest version of LauncherPro on her phone. I guess the inner-troubleshooter in me is determined to figure out the cause-- especially if LauncherPro and/or YouTube interacted funny, I thought it'd be a really useful thing to give to the developers.
I searched and didn't find any answers. But from the video from wirefly, it looks like they are playing the digital copy from disney. I have a droid now and can't get them to play. i ordered the incredible today and am anxiously awaiting it.
I have read all I can about using the Inc overseas and am confused. If the phone is switched to WiFi in a WiFi spot, can you use the phone? I have read that Verizon put some sort of restrictions on it, but I'm not savvy enough to understand it all. My daughter is in the Coast Guard and we both have DInc's. She goes to places like Star Bucks in other countries that offers WiFi and we would LOVE to be able to text each other with our phones. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Any 'Tasker' like program I can use on my windows PC? I'd like to be able to have my computer recognize when my S3 connects to my router, and automatically do things, like start up Spotify. Seems like this would be pretty simple, but my searches have turned up nothing...
I'm looking for a music streaming app. one that goes from my PC to my DESIRE over wifi or blue tooth. if the app can let me skip forward or back a track, thats a bonus. have looked at mspot, orblive and subsonic but none are really free and have a bunch more options that i don't really want.
The base radio on the Venza dominates. Toyota's new dedication to advanced consoles and tech is right on point. There's even a built in holder in the dash that secures my EVO upright, with a connection for my USB power cord. I even got the bluetooth music streaming to work. Awesome. I get into the car, and right away, it starts streaming my music right to the bluetooth stereo. That's where my brain melted.
I seem to only be able to play the album that I was currently listening to in the music app. I can switch tracks, but that's all I can seem to do from the car controls. The most frustrating part is, I have NO idea where to go for information. Toyota? They give simple instructions on how to get it started, but that's about it. I'm there already.
It's really an android thing, but it's kind of a fusion between the two. What functionality does Android expose for BT streaming, and which of those functions does the Toyota interface have a "hook" into? For that matter, it could be my inexperience with the EVO music player. Does it support playlists, linked playlists, random playlists, etc, etc. For that matter, can I download a different/better media player that will help me facilitate streaming better? Too many questions, and shockingly, Google isn't coming back with the detailed help I was expecting..........
I like to listen to live streaming radio (shoutcast) using different apps available. I want to know how I can make a bluetooth connection to my car bt system. I remember I did it once to my bt headset with my Hero but I don't remember how I did it. Also, a few times, my ringtone and keyboard clicks(with Hero) played through my car bt system but I have no idea how it happened. I didn't try to connect it. It just happened on it's own. If I remember correctly, to hook the streaming music to a bt headset you had to dial a pause (P) or dial ## and send it. The phone would make a connection and hang up right away. After that you were linked to the bt. But after the Hero update, that method didn't work anymore, the call would go through and you get a message saying "Can't be completed as dialed". So does anyone know a way of doing this with the Evo?
what are the best apps for streaming my own music from the cloud? I know about mp3 tunes and grooveshark. any better ones? I know Google purchased simplify media so they will have that option soon but that requires your computer to be on all the time. since Google docs now allows uploading any file type are there any apps that will stream music from Google docs?
any Android music players that stream from FTP? The only ones I know are Dice Player and ES File Explorer. The former has no playlist capabilities whatsoever, while the latter's playback capabilities are fairly restricted and clunky.
Just wanted to give you ya'll a heads up on a program thats been around but all may not be familiar with named DoubleTwist. Its a FREE PC program that will auto convert video to the correct codec & framerate of the EVO (& other devices). The program also syncs music & pics as well. Its basically best described as iTunes for Android. Check it out: http://www.doubletwist.com/dt/Home/Index.dt
I am a current iPhone 3G user, but after having lost all my contacts, text message history, and Safari bookmarks when I updated to the new OS, I am ready to be done with Apple. But, before I switch, I'm trying to get a handle on what apps Android has. My favorite apps are radio stations across the country that stream over the iphone. Does Droid have these? Is there a list somewhere that shows what ones are available?
I have been trying to find out all I can about streaming audio from my home to my Droid; i have around 100GB+ of mp3s I would like to be able to access. I am looking for feedback from anyone who has used these apps and services or suggestions for any that I have overlooked.
Orb Subsonic Mecanto imeem
I have barely started playing with Mecanto. It's just hard for me to believe that they will allow you to upload any amount without any type of payment - unless they are planning to charge a considerable amount for the app later on. I do have Pandora installed, and I love it. But sometimes I just want to be able to queue up my own playlist of songs.
are there any apps that allow music streaming from a computer to an android device via 3g network? i tried gmote 2.0, which seemed like a great app, although streaming music to the phone never worked, got an error message everytime and that was over wifi. anything that will stream music over 3g?
I just found this app accidentally, and basically, you go on their website upload your own music to your account ( or you can buy/add their tracks) then when you log on from your android app you can play all your music, and download it! also great if you are out of space on your memory card - put your songs on moozone instead of the card ...
I'm having problems with streaming music to my car stereo. Everything connects ok but playback is very jumpy. I get a 1 or 2 second pause every 10 seconds or so. I know it's not my car stereo as my iPhone streams to it seemlessly for hours on end.
