    i've been trying to play videos from my vibrant to my samsung tv with little luck. photo's work fine, but when i play videos, they run for 2 seconds and pause endlessly. my phone displays a "working" graphic as if it's loading, also endlessly. Are the videos to big to play thru DLNA?

    It looks like my videos are recording in 3gp format, is there a way to change that?

    Easy solution...

    Amazon.com: Zune A/V Output Cable: Electronics

    They work like a charm.
     
  3. Here's another idea for you. Twonky Media Server Mobile. I've gotten annoyed with AllShare and this works great to serve media via DLNA. Also its free in the marketplace. I'm using it this second to watch Zombieland via my Xbox 360. I'm most of the way through it and no issues at all.

    IT will serve video, audio, and images. The only downside is since the 360 doesn't support the 3gp format the videos I take with the phone don't play but the rest does.

    I dont think AllShare is a complete DLNA server. Just my guess because when I tell it to share out a video, it brings up what looks like a video player as if it will play on the phone screen but be projected on the larger tv. A real DLNA server should just present the file on the network for clients to play.

    It works flawlessy between my C650 Samsung and Vibrant.

    I can either choose to play the video from my phone and it will just automatically come on the TV or I can have the phone on and use my TV to browse all the shared files in media play.

    Not sure why it wouldn't work for you.

    That's a terrible solution. For one they are composite and will look like crap, Two they are wired, which defeats the entire purpose of allShare and being wireless.

    It brings up what looks like a video player on your phone because you use the controls on the phone to control the video playback on your TV. It supposed to be like that.

    How do you enable or use DNLA from the vibrant? Just got a Samsung LED tv and blu-ray. Need an app or does the phone work with Samsung devices without one?
