With Galaxy S2, you could easily stream your music, videos and photos on your phone to any DLNA enabled devices like TV over WLAN. The AllShare service from Samsung allows you to stream all the full HD videos, music and pics across any devices that support AllShare services, such as PC, TV, mobile phone, and digital camera.
In this post, I’ll guide you how to share videos, music and pics from Samsung Galaxy S2 to TV though wifi network.
Since my LCD TV [Panasonic] doesn’t support DLNA, I used Sony Blu-ray player [Sony BD-370] to stream the data to TV from Galaxy phone. Follow the below steps to stream data from phone to TV via DLNA enabled bluray player.
Connect the Blu ray player to the same WLAN network to which your SGS2 is connected. That means if you’re using a wireless router, connect your galaxy s2 to it’s wifi network and attach the LAN cable from router to your DLNA compatible player like TV/Bluray.

Open the application Allshare in your SGS2 and you’ll see a connected symbol.
Now make sure the internet connection settings are ok in your TV. If it’s ok, you’ll see the I.P address assigned as shown in the image below.
Now start the AllShare application on your phone and check the connection server settings in TV.
Your Samsung Galaxy S2 will be shown under the server name along with the Mac address as shown in figure below.
Now you’ll be able to browse through the videos and photos on your phone from your TV. For accessing the videos from mobile on TV through DLNA, go to the videos tab and click on the mobile device which appears, in my case it was GT-I9100 which was indeed my device name.
Connecting Galaxy S2 to TV via DLNA is very easy and doesn’t require much effort. So try it and if you encounter any problem post them in the comment section below.
P.S: Other connectivity option for SGS2 is through MHL cable from Samsung, which can be connected to the HDMI input of the TV.
