    Has anyone been able to get DLNA to work? If so, how?

    Have not messed with it a whole lot, but you got to make sure the other device you are trying to stream stuff to, also has DLNA. Which from what I can understand, is that DLNA is something that is built in, and not something you can just download. May I also ask what you are trying to stream? Pictures, Video, music?

    Honestly, I don't care what it is I stream. I'm trying to stream from my computer over wireless. I had a wireless sharing network set up but I haven't been able to get DLNA to work. My PC shows up but it won't let me access my shared folder.

    It says "Browsing of folder failed" right away when trying to access my PC.

    I got it working fine with my ps3. I just went through the media share app, which is kind of a set-up wizard. Then my phone showed up as a media server on my ps3, complete with all my music files and playlists.

    I actually just got it to work with Windows 7. I just had to mess with some of my media sharing settings.

    I am having the same issues, what settings did you change in Windows 7 to get it to work?

    So are you guys finding a reason to do this other than "just because I can"? (Which I totally get - I'll be trying it out as well. :) )Seems like this would be a battery suck on the Droid, and you'd always have anything that's on your droid available on your server (at least I do).

    Just curious if there's a good use case I'm missing...thanks.

    I have used it on my Windows 7 PC. I use it to play songs that are not on my phone. It was a little hard to setup on the PC side. On my system, the phone was blocked by default so I had to allow it, but it did not tell me what I was allowing. It came up as unknown device and I took a chance and it worked.

    I think I turned on Network Discovery and that did the trick on my computer.
