How to stream media using BlackBerry device via WiFi network connection [with pics]
As we all know with the current leaked OS7.1 releases, a very cool new feature has also been released.
You can now stream files straight from your BlackBerry device via Wi-Fi (Media Server) wireless connection(y)
How cool is this feature from BlackBerry?
RIM has been working together with (DLNA) Digital Living Network Alliance , through their dedicated hard work to make this feature available to these leaked operating systems.
We now have proof that this feature works and is now available for BlackBerry Bold, Torch, and Curve devices, for OS7.1 owners.
I'm sure other BlackBerry OS7 devices will be able to receive this feature on future leaked OS7.1 builds.
I have posted several actual pictures from my BlackBerry Bold 9900, so I may show everyone on ::bbos:: how to get this feature working successfully on their BlackBerry device.
To find your BlackBerry device on your Windows based PC, click on Network.
On your BlackBerry device, scroll right down to "Media Options", and click on File Sharing.
Once you click On File Sharing, you will see "Turning File Sharing On"
Click on Preferences, here is where you will have the choice of turning on "Media File Permissions"
You will have the choice of sharing Music, Pictures, Podcasts, Videos, and/or Voice Notes.
Click on Edit, here is where you will Enter a name for this device, "Name of Device", then click Ok.
Note: you may keep the default "Name of Device" if you wish.
Click on the back button now.
This is Access Control screen, where you will observe your Wi-Fi wireless network SSID name, and choose whether you want to "Auto Accept All Connections", or not.
If you choose not to "Auto Accept All Connections", then you can choose to manually accept any connection, (Prompt, Always Allow, or Never Allow).
"File Sharing is OFF" this picture shows that File Sharing has been turned off via the Access Control screen.
When File Sharing is on through the "DLNA" feature, you can stream any file from your BlackBerry device, via WMP (Windows Media Player), as I have posted below for all ::bbos:: members.
If you have any further suggestions, or comments relating to this OS7.1 feature, please post below so other members can share and learn from each other.
