How to use DLNA technologies


DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is a standard technology used by manufacturers of consumer electronics to allow entertainment devices within the home to share their content with each other across a home network without a complicated configuration process.


To use DLNA technology with GT-I8000 and TV, Wi-Fi must be connected via the same network connection as your TV. (i.e. The DLNA function must be installed in TV with Wi-Fi connection.)

For Samsung TVs connection to Wi-Fi is all the setting you need.

(For other brand TVs please refer to each site’s manual.)

1. Select Menu from the Home screen and then go to the second tab.

2. Execute Connected Home.

Select Menu, and execute Connected Home.    


If Wi-Fi is not activated the connection message will pop up. Tap Wi-Fi on to move to Select Network and then select the desired network.

Tap Wi-Fi on to move to Select Network if Wi-Fi is not activated.

5. If you see a light next to the My media Sharing section then it means you have a Wi-Fi connection.

6. Click Sharing Folder and then select the folder that contains the contents.

Click Sharing Folder, and select the folder which contains the contents.

7. Select the Select Contents icon to move to Contents Location.

8. Select your device (GT-I8000), which is displayed in the middle of the screen.

Click Select Contents icon to move to Contents Location.

9. Select the content to play and then move to Select Player.

10. Select the device to play your content. (If the TV with the DLNA service and the mobile phone shares the same Wi-Fi connection the TV icon will appear on the "Select Player" screen.)

Select the content to play, and move to Select Player.

11. Now you can play your content using DLNA technologies.

You can play your content using DLNA technologies.
