    Hello.
    You have to use software that would works as a server on your PC.
    It could be Windows Media Player - you just need to set it up. It could be also XBMC.
    But experience shows that the best one for music sharing is Foobar2000 ( ). It is specially designed just for music.
    After installation of Foobar2000 you have to install DLNA plugin - UPnP/DLNA Renderer, Server, Control Point 0.99.45
    The advantage of Foobar2000 is its speed of work. It works almost instantly with no delays.

    I have visited my friend. He has Sony Playstation 3. I have conntected to his home network, but I didn't see Sony Playstation in the list of renderers, though it is DLNA compatible. What could be the reason of this?

    The reason of this is that Play Station 3 do not have DMR fuctionality, so it could not be controlled remotely.

    Here is the information about different DLNA classes:

    DMS - server, can share media information, can be accessed by controller and player.
    DMP - can browse servers, select media and play it.
    DMC - can browse servers, select media and sent it to another devices and controll playback.
    DMR - can receive media from controllers and play it, can be controlled.

    DMPr - is digital media pritnter, that is why we are not going to add this class.
    Talink about Uploader and Downloader - it might be interesting to add. We will take this into regard.

    Dear Sir,

    I have installed in my Sony XPeria Z (Android), and it is fantastic - all can be played without problem. All my pictures, videos and music are put on NAS (Buffalo LinkStation ProDuo), and I accessed it using uPNP or DLNA.

    Just recently, I got iPad mini (Iwith the latest iOS), and I have installed this application also, but I experienced some porblems:
    - I cannot play DVD file (the picture is shown up, but no sound).
    - Some of small MKV file is working fine, but most of them is only sound - picture is like "freezing" since the beginning.
    - When I chose a file (I cannot get the pattern), the application is just closed - quit without any message. This happened not only for video, but also music file - mainly with flac format.

    These problems are never happened in my android.

    Do I have to install other application (codec maybe?) to solve these issue?

    FYI, I just installed this application yesterday, so I think that is the latest version, but not light version.

    Any suggestion?
