Thread: Mezzmo to local VLC or so

    Question Mezzmo to local VLC or so

    Hi, fantastic product
    I would like to obtain the following (maybe it is already possible).
    My laptop with a test Mezzmo is acting as my media server. It is connected to AV Receiver by HDMI cable and to LAN. I would like to control the server from my android device - eg. smartphone or tablet using something like BubbleUpnp. Yes, I can stream it from Mezzmo to other devices called renderers (eg. tablet or tv) but so far have not found a way to run it on the laptop. Mezzmo appears only as Library, not as renderer. I have not found any soft that could be controlled from Android device and play the heavy high definition movies *"locally"* (directly from laptop without pushing it over LAN from one virtual device to the other).
    In other words - is there any soft that could 'suck' files locally from Mezzmo library and be remotely controlled by Android device? I called the situation "mezzmo to VLC" where remotely controlled VLC could read files from local mezzmo library and play it on the same machine.
    I'm not sure if I expressed myself in understandable way ;-)

    On your laptop, you can use Windows Media Player, XBMC, VLC or PowerDVD media player as your local Windows-based media player. Each one of these act as a DLNA renderer & Mezzmo can stream to them (and has device profiles for each of them). You should be able to see them listed using your Android controller app (e.g. BubbleUPnP).

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
