Published on by transcode-video

If you have a look at Motorola Droid X, you may notice the Droid X is compatible with DLNA service. DLNA, as the short term for Digital Living Network Alliance, is to make it possible to view media between PCs, mobile devices and other consumer electronics. If you have a home wired or wireless network, e.g. Wi Fi network and a DLNA-capable TV, you can stream music, movies and photos from Droid X to TV. DLNA make it an alternative method to watch Droid X videos on TV besides HDMI output with Verizon Gallery app.

 

Since we may sometimes do not have DLNA PC or transfer videos from PC to Droid X, we may face the problem of putting movies to Droid X. Here the guide will include two parts: one for converting movies to Droid X and the other for streaming movies from Droid X to HDTV.
