Just get a Samsung Galaxy S2 and captures some 1080p/720p videos using its HD camcorder but there is no success to share the recorded movies on your WD TV Live via the DLNA support. Now the following article will show the light for you to easily share Galaxy S2 recorded videos on WD TV Live Hub.
To start, you should know that the 1080p/720p camera videos shot by Galaxy S2 is MP4 format with 3GP4 codec ID. After testing, we got the answer that the WD TV Live can directly play the recorded 3GP4 MP4 movies stored on Galaxy S2 via the media sharing application – AllShare. (For those WD TV Live unsupported videos and movies stored on Galaxy S2, you could use a powerful Galaxy S2 to WD TV Converter (or Mac Galaxy S2 to WD TV Converter) to help you convert them to a more friendly video format compatible for WD TV Live such as MPEG-4, H.264, etc that can also be played on Samsung Galaxy S2.)
Now, below is to show detailed steps of sharing Galaxy S2 videos and movies on WD TV Live via the DLNA application – AllShare.
(Notice: Before streaming Galaxy S2 movies to WD TV Live via AllShare, you should make sure that the Galaxy S2 is connected to an active Wi-Fi network and has access to the WD TV Live. And the WD TV Live should already be turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Galaxy S2.)
