More and more Android devices have the lovely DLNA support, like Motorola Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy S2, Nexus S and more. That means you can stream or transmit videos and movies between these DLNA equipped devices or other DLNA certified devices via DLNA media sharing applications with no wires, such as PS3, Xbox 360, WD TV, NSA, HDTV and more.
Here it mainly shows you how to easily stream Galaxy S2 recordings to PS3 via DLNA application – AllShare so that you could enjoy them in your digital home. To start, you should know that the 1080p or 720p camera videos recorded by Galaxy S2 HD camcorder is MP4 format with 3GP4 codec ID. And the 3GP4 codec MP4 video files aren't in the list of codecs the PS3 can decode. So playing Galaxy S2 3GP4 codec MP4 videos on PS3 is really a big problem.
However, you can use a third party to help you realize it. Pavtube Galaxy S2 Video to PS3 Converter or Mac Galaxy S2 Video to PS3 Converter will be your good choice. It can help you quickly convert Galaxy S2 MP4 3GP4 to WMV or MPEG-4 videos that can be directly played on PS3. (PS: And the detailed guide on how to convert Galaxy S2 3GP4 MP4 to PS3 will do a great favor for you.)
(Notice: Here PS3 takes a role of DLNA player but DLNA server, so it can play movies from PC or Galaxy S2 in your digital home but can not stream PC or Galaxy S2 videos to other players within DLNA protocols.)
Once getting the converted files, you could watch on your computer. (Or, you can use Windows Media Player 11 or above to help you stream the videos to PS3. The guide on how to stream video from PC to PS3 can help you make it.)
