How to connect to your Smart TV or UPnP Box

The DeviceOnline application is designed to connect and stream media to your smart TV and similar devices. Once it starts it scans your local network for UPnP / DLNA compatible devices - Digital Media Renderers. This means that if you own devices like Smart TV, Mobile Phones, Tablets, etc connected to your local area network (LAN), the DeviceOnline should be able to detect them. Once the device is discovered, the application will include it in its list of mediaplayers for possible selection.

Below are several simple steps that describe how to share content to your Smart TV or UPnP / DLNA complient device:

  • Download, install and start the DeviceOnline stand alone application or the Chrome extension
  • Drag and Drop desired folders and media files into the window
  • Choose the desired Media Player device from the Drop Down
  • Double click on an item from your playlist
  • Use the playback controls in order to Pause. Resume, Stop or Skip the current item
  • You can use the following short cut keys for playback controls:
    • F1: Open the Help page
    • SPACEBAR: Pause / Resume command
    • +: Volume UP
    • -: Volume DOWN
  • To use subtitles, a "srt" files are supported and should be with same file name as the movie. Note that subtitles must be present in the track list.

Subtitles set up

  • File naming - Rename the subtitle "srt" file to match the name of corresponding video file.
  • File encoding - Most UPnP media renderers require the subtitle's file encoding to be in Unicode encoding (e.g. for LG Smart TV the encoding is UTF-8 with BOM). You can use some advanced text editor to change the encoding.
  • Playlist notes -The "srt" file should be present in playlist along with the corresponding media file.

Watch external links

DeviceOnline is capable to provide playback from external links. In most cases user can extract the URL from web page content using the context menu over the desired element. The extracted URL should be placed inside URL Text Box filed and hit Enter to add it to the playlist. Normally the external links should contain an extension, but there are some exceptions such as YouTube. In order to find out how to share links from YouTube, TED, VBox7, TWiT, Revision3 and others, please follow the link.

Known limitations:

  • The DeviceOnline Remote Media Center uses the browser build in HTML-5 player, so it may not play all media files provided by the server APP. The reason for this limitation is that different browsers can play different types of media, and the built-in HTML-5 player is bound to it.
  • Sometimes adding external URLs such as YouTube videos may lead to message like - "Failed to add URL entry due to website restrictions!". This notification rises since some video clips are restricted for streaming outside YouTube service.
  • The Chrome application is not capable to put itself into the Windows firewall exception list, so a manual firewall setting for port 8090 is required.
