    Andy device with Wi-Fi can be DLNA compatible.

    DLNA - is like a language between different media devices. If your device have Wi-Fi or LAN (that is to say - can communicate at all) - it could speak DLNA.

    There are several DLNA classes (you can get to know it better on DLNA site)
    The main of them are:

    Server - share media files that he have.
    Player - go through the servers and select the files and plays them.
    Render - waiting for someone to send him media files.
    Controller - the one who is browsing servers, select files, and sends them to players.

    For Android phone - you can try DLNA application ArkMC. It has all these 4 classes.

    So, if your device have wi-fi (or lan) - it could potentially be DLNA.

    To be controller - it needs to have some screen and some keyboard (or touch creen) - to take a look at files, to select one of them and to send it to be played to other devices.

    To be player - it better to have or BSG display - for videos and photos, or at least some headphones - to listen to music.

    To be renderer - the same requirement as for player.

    And to be servers - there's no need for screen, there's no need for sound, there's no need for keyboard - it just needs to be able to store files!

    No, DLNA has nothing whatsoever to do with Wi-Fi. DLNA is a simple, lightweight multimedia service that doesn't care about the networking media. I use mine over Ethernet.

    I don't know what the video has to do with anything. Most of it shows a guy using what I presume is a HDMI cable to view his phone on a TV. The second part shows a pretty lame "prank" (that looks staged to me) where some kid gets scared by an ugly picture on the TV suddenly coming on. Big deal.

    its called the htc media link. it is offered for most htc phones. i have one but unfortunately it does not work on a rooted phone.....so it is kind of useless at the moment. it works like the apple tv works. it has two plugs, one for power and one for hdmi to the tv. worked great until i rooted it. LOL

    I agree, you just need an access to the network.
