How to set up the DLNA feature on a computer.
By setting up your computer as a Digital Living Network Alliance® (DLNA®) server, you can stream media, such as music, photos or video, over your network to a DLNA-supported device. DLNA devices include certain TVs, Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) players, HiFi component systems and computers. Once the DLNA server and device are set up and connected properly, the device can access media from the iTunes® application and iPhoto® libraries, as well as other locations on the computer.
- The computer and the DLNA device must be connected to the same network for this procedure to work.
- If you are using third-party firewall or security software, you may have to configure it to allow the DLNA server access to your network.
Follow the steps listed below to set up the DLNA® feature.
- Point to (but do not click) the lower-right or top-right corner of the screen, and then click to select the Settings charm.
NOTE: The Windows Logo + I key combination will also take you to the Settings screen.
- In the Settings screen, in the lower-right corner, click Change PC settings.
- In the PC Settings screen, click PC and devices.
- In the PC and devices screen, click Devices.
- In the Devices screen, click the + Add a device button.
- At the Searching for devices prompt, click to select the device you wish to add to the DLNA network.
You will now be able to see that device from within a DLNA capable application.
