DLNA compatibility

How can I find out if my m8430f pavilion is DLNA compatible as required by many Blu Ray players currently on the market? If not how can I make it compatible (if possible)?

Re: DLNA compatibility

I am not sure about the relation between blu ray player and DLNA...they are 2 independent technology...Blu Ray play should play blu ray with out anything to do with DLNA... DLNA is just extra feature on Blu ray player...


So on your question, Windows Media Player 11 beings with it media Sharing Capabilities...So any DLNA client can pick up WMP 11 with out any issue...

Hi,

You might want to read this article from last year to get a better understanding of the digital living network alliance ( DLNA ). 

Your Blu-Ray player has nothing to do with DLNA. The Player in your m8430f pavilion will not be the device that will stream the video. You can however, set up your m8430f pavilion so that it can provide streaming video as a server.

DLNA is a standard for video streaming to DLNA compatible devices.
