    [How To] Streaming to your Android device over LAN from your Linux Box

    In response to several queries I have made this step by step tutorial to show how to stream from your box to your Android device on your LAN.

    The first step is pretty obvious in that you need a couple of things from the Play Store so download and install both items below which are free.

    1. Dreamdroid
    2. Wondershare Player (there are other players but this is what I use and it has some big advantages over the other players I have found).

    There are no additional requirements for the receiver other than it is on your LAN.

    1. Switch on WiFi and ensure that it is connected to your router.
    2. Open Dreamdroid and you will see this screen (Note: at the bottom of this screenshot yours will say "connection error" at the right - ignore this)



    3. Touch the Profiles button to get this screen (yours will only have Default dm8000 in here)



    4. Touch the circle with the + next to the magnifiying glass to get to this screen.



    5. Setup your profile.
    Profile Name = Anything you want
    Hostname/IP = the full IP address of your receiver
    Streaming/IP = Not used
    Port = 80
    https = Not used
    Enable Logon = yes (tick the box) (once this is done additional logon settings are shown)
    User Name = root
    Password = Not used
    Very Important at this stage is to make sure you save your new profile by pressing the memory card icon at the top next to the X



    6. Now go back to the profiles page (note in these screenshots I have deleted the last number of my IP address so yours should show it in full)



    now touch your new profile and you should connect to your receiver as seen at the bottom of this next screenshot, the profile name is on the left and you will see the version number at the right if successful.



    7. Now touch on the Services button and it will bring up the services list



    8. Touch Bouquets to bring up your list



    Touch a Bouquet to bring up the channel list



    Pick a channel and tap its name, you will now get a popup box



    Touch stream and unless you already have wondershare as the default player you will be asked how to complete this action.



    Tick the box to Use by default for this action then select Wondershare Player (once this is done you will not be asked again and further streaming will activate Wondershare without asking).

    Now Wondershare will open and say preparing then buffering for a few seconds, after which you will get the live picture (which is much better quality than this capture )




    Job Done enjoy

    Connection error is usually due to incorrect IP address or login providing your box is actually on the LAN, go back through the setup procedure and follow it to the letter
