General :: Stream Home Server Media To Device When Away From Home?

Jan 5, 2014

I have terrabytes of movies on my always on server that I would like to have access to over the internet. I have TV shows, home movies, and ripped movies that I want to be able to view when not at home. Free would be nice, but easy would be best. I don't want to have to setup dynamicDNS or anything complex if possible. I am shocked that this is not something easily possible today. Or maybe it is but I am not searching for it the right way.

Media :: Stream Music From Your Home Computer

Jan 12, 2010

I used Mecanto on Nokia, and it's very impressive. It's like ORB, except it has a very good app (instead of using a browser). Mecanto now has an Android app in beta; I just got the email:Installation:

1. Go to Settings > Applications and then check the box called Unknown sources.

2. Use the phone�s browser and go to http://www.mecanto.com/ms and select "Android beta version".

3. After software is downloaded, press on the downloaded application and MeCanto will be installed.

4. Start MeCanto and enter your user name & password

You install a small server on your computer (get it from Mecanto site), then direct it to your media folders. It indexes your files (taking a long time if you have .5TB of music, like me). It then starts uploading your files to their server, where only you can access them (read their FAQ for privacy concerns). Before they are uploaded, though, you can stream directly from your computer. It's kind-of a weird system; I wish it would just stream.For me, playback stutters and skips a lot, but I'm wondering if it's just because I have the $10 internet plan (not the $25 smartphone plan, which may be faster). I do always have 3G (indicated as such anyway).

General :: How To Stream Media From PC To Device Samsung I9000 Running ICS

Feb 8, 2012

I have my PC downloading all sorts of media during the day, music, videos, etc... as far as this discussion goes, all of them are completely legal and DRM-free.

My PC is a Dell laptop (i7-2670QM) running legit Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit I have a Samsung i9000 running ICS, and a B&N Nook Color Running CM7,

I tried reading about RTSP and UPnP and other stuff, but couldn't get my head around it, I'm usually good with computers, except for this case.

What I want to do is to setup a media streaming from my PC to any of my devices. I don't even want my computer to re-encode the media, just stream it as-is, given that you can play almost any format on android these days.

Is it possible? If so, what do I need? can I use VLC, or do I have to setup something more serious?

Motorola Droid :: Able To Stream Music From My Laptop At Home

Jan 12, 2010

I've seen threads on remote desktop but I want to be able to stream music from my laptop at home to my droid on the go. However, I want to be able to play all my music through winamp (because of it's preset EQ).

Is there a way I can remote desktop into my laptop through my droid so I can see the actual windows background of my home laptop (I have W7 Ultimate) and stream music to the phone by playing it through winamp?

I want to be able to listen to flac (which is the something droid can't do) which is one of the reasons I want to go through all this.

Nexus :: Windows Home Server And Android

Jun 4, 2010

I have a WHS box which I can connect to via the internet and download my files. When I connect to the server with the default Android browser it shows the site fine, but when I go to download a file (say a .doc file), the file is larger than normal and can't be opened in quickoffice.Yesterday I was trying to download a 28k word document that kept downloading at 158k in size. So what I had to do was find a PC, download the file, send it to myself in gmail and it worked fine.

HTC Incredible :: Reduce Number Of Home Screens Remember Last Home Screen

Jul 7, 2010

Two things I'd like to be able to do with my incredible.First is reduce the number of homescreens. Seven is really pointless for me, it makes finding the right screen take a little longer and there's just not enough good quality widgets that I need to use. I could do better with 5 and possibly just 3.Second is that when I'm not on a homescreen and I hit the home button, I'd like it to go back to the LAST homescreen I was on, not the center one. And if I'm already on a homescreen, once again pull up the homescreen select menu, instead of going to the center homescreen. It's a waste of a button press to always go to that center screen when pressing the home button.

Android :: Overriding The Home Key Long Press In A Category - HOME Activity

May 29, 2010

I just created my own "Home" to replace the stock android one or Sense.

All is working fine and I get all I want. My only problem is to replace to long press on home key ( that usually show the last 6 activities you launched) by my own launcher.

I successfully replace the long press on MENU button with this code:

CODE:..........

and this part part for the long press:

CODE:.............

But the problem is that I wasn't able to replace the KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MENU with KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HOME

Is that something locked in the code that avoid user to use a Home long press?

Motorola Droid :: Beautiful Home Running By Itself With Sweeter Home Active

Jan 17, 2010

One thing that's bothering me about SH... I don't use Beautiful Home anymore. In fact, I've removed all beautiful widgets from all my home screens and home screen replacement apps. Yet for some reason I get the weather thing in my status bar as if I had Beautiful Home running. Which means it's somehow being run without being told to. And it only does this with Sweeter Home.

Whenever I am using any app and press the home button, the home screen blacks out for a few secs and it takes around 10 sec to get all the icons back and before I can start using my phone again. I am using a non rooted mytouch 3g.

This problem does not happen if I exit an app by pressing the back button. It becomes very annoying at times.

Android :: Overriding Home Button For Car Home Replacement Application

May 19, 2010

I have been working on a replacement for the stock Car Home app for a bit, and I am completely stumped on how to override the Home button so that my app will be brought back to the foreground whenever the phone is docked. This is the way that Car Home works, so there must be a way. It seems that BroadcastReceivers won't work, because the intent that is broadcast whenever the Home button is pressed will still cause the default homescreen app to launch; I cannot prevent it. I can override the Home button from within my app, but that does me no good since this needs to work when the user is outside my app. Car Home also does not do anything weird like set itself as the default homescreen app while it's running (I checked the logcat to make sure).
I've been really beating my head against the wall on this. Does anyone have any ideas, or can you at least point me in the right direction?

Android :: Setting Open Home Back To Default For Home Key

Nov 1, 2009

Ive had open home downloaded for over a month and i only used it for a short period of time before switching back to the default homepage setting. Now, because of the new features added to Open Home i want to switch back, and every time i open 'Open Home' it only opens until i hit the home key. Then it does not ask me what i want to use as my default as it used to. I went to settings>applications>manage applications>open home to clear all defaults but it is not highlighted for me to select it. How can i set Open Home to my default again?

Motorola CLIQ : Whenever Reply To Message Off The Home Screen Widget - Automatically Defaults To Home Number For That Contact

This is more of an annoyance, but whenever I reply to a message off the home screen widget, it automatically defaults to the home number for that contact, instead of replying to the same (cell) number that it was sent from. If I go into the messaging app, it works as it should (replies to the same number).

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 : X10i - When Press Home Button - Get A Prompt To Select To Complete Action Using Home Or Timescape

I am a new member and a relatively new owner of an X10i. Overall I am happy with the phone but I am hoping some can answer a question. When I press the home button (middle one) I get a prompt to select to 'Complete Action using Home or Timescape' This is quite annoying. I want the default action to be Home (not Timescape) but despite ticking the box in the prompt it still pops up this box.

Android :: Sweeter Home 2 And Beautiful Home Widget

Jan 16, 2010

I'm just starting to get the hang of Sweeter Home Preview 2. And as many of you already know, some widgets (like Beautiful Home) won't update consistantly. I'm going to email the dev my finding so hopefully he can rectify this issue. But in the meantime, you can try this fix/work-around. My Beautiful Home widget has been keeping the correct time for almost 12 hours now ... through many edits, screen changes, and reboots. That was not the case just yesterday. What I finally did was experiment with the "Layer Level" parameter of everything on the screen. What I found was that if the Beautiful Home widget was on the highest level (10), that it will update with no problems. In fact, I have no other Layer Level 10 items on the screen where I'm using that widget.
