Hi,

I basically want to use the Zgemma as a Chromecast in this instance.

Does anyone know how to send a stream to a Zgemma, from a mobile, just like you do with a Chromecast?

I use an app called dream player on my android phone don't know about iphone for zgemma but will only work on WiFi unless you create your own server and then know how to use port forwarding on router so you can use mobile data whilst out and about

Hi,
I thought that App worked as a player/receiver?

As an example:
Does the App allow me to send a YouTube video, from the YouTube app on my mobile,
to the ZGemma to play it there?

= Share/Cast it to ZGemma

Don't think so sorry I thought you meant so you could just watch the zgemma channels on your phone

This is it.
I want to send video at the Zgemma, just like you would do with a Chromecast, from a mobile device.
Either video on my device, or shares from Apps such as YouTube/Mobdro/Terrarium etcetera.
It's basically a share/link isn't it, of either a file on my phone or off the web.

you could download video to the phone and then install a samba server app on the phone and set it up as a network drive on the zgemma but that probably doesn't work with youtube videos.

I understand.
I was hoping for something different though.

Like this: I see there's a DLNA media server plugin in the ZGemma download section,
which I haven't fully tested yet, but if it's this one mentioned , it might do everything required.
It appears to do UPNP/DLNA Media Renderer, so you can stream to the box.

Yes, I thought about that after posting so thought I would have a try, the DNLAMediaServer is obviously a server, you would need to use the DNLA browser on the zgemma I would have thought, and then a server app on the mobile device. but is a dlna browser also a renderer?

On second thoughts, It Might be kind of the same thing you mentioned lol

Sounds overly complicated lol, I'll have another look tomorrow at it tomorrow.

Please don't link to other forums
How come?
