Stream and Share Photos, Music and Video between iOS Devices and PC
Nowadays all your digital videos, photos and music are scattered across different devices – on your PC, your iPhone, iPad and iPod devices. When it comes to exchanging content between devices, file format compatibility, methods of syncing and transferring files have always been big problems.
With the PowerDVD family, it’s easy to unite all your devices so you can enjoy your media on any of your devices. Here are some use cases so you can see how PowerDVD makes your digital life easier.
Use Case #1 - Playing Media From Your PC to Other Devices
You've got tons of movies, photos and music files on your PC that you want to enjoy on your TV, digital picture frames, portable devices and other DLNA devices.
With PowerDVD 13 Ultra, pushing & playing media from your PC to DLNA devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network is easy!
In this case, PowerDVD 13 Ultra functions as a DLNA Media Controller that manages and sends content to DLNA receivers (e.g. your DLNA TV, iPad with PowerDVD Mobile) to be played back and enjoyed.
In your PowerDVD Smart Media Library, locate the file you want to send to a connected DLNA device.
Right click on the file and select "Play to". A list of available devices to send the file to will appear. Select the device you want to enjoy your content on. That's it - quick and simple!
Use Case #2 - Converting Media for Your Portable Devices
You’ve just downloaded a great movie that plays okay on your PC, but won’t play on your iPad or iPhone because the format isn't supported.
Any downloaded movies that PowerDVD 13 Ultra can play, play on devices running PowerDVD Mobile, too.
PowerDVD 13 Ultra supports a broad range of video formats. It is also able to intelligently recognize the profile of your portable devices when you connect them. These two features, together with new Smart Sync and Smart Convert technologies mean that no matter what format your downloaded movie is in, when you want to sync it to your iPhone or iPad, PowerDVD 13 Ultra will transfer it in a format that your device can play. And it all happens automatically!
Install PowerDVD on your PC, and PowerDVD Mobile on your iOS devices. If they're all connected to the same Wi-Fi network you can use PowerDVD Mobile to browse the PowerDVD Smart Media Library on your PC.
Select whichever video you want to view and click “Download to”. PowerDVD will recognize your device type and select a supported video format, converting the video and saving it to the mobile device.
Use Case #3 - Sharing Media Between Devices
In today's multi-device environment, sometimes the media you want to enjoy isn’t on the device you're currently using.
Perhaps you've got music on your iPod Touch that you want to listen to while you're viewing photos on your iPhone. How can you do this without the hassle of physically copying the files over?
With PowerDVD 13 Ultra and companion app for mobile devices, PowerDVD Mobile, sharing across devices is easy!
Install PowerDVD Mobile on your iPod Touch and iPhone and connect both these devices to the same Wi-Fi network.
In PowerDVD Mobile on your phone, click the Music tab > Home Network, then locate your iPod Touch. You can then browse your iPod's media and select and play the music you want to listen to. When you resume browsing the photos on your phone the music will continue to play in the background.
