How to stream video from Android to Xbox 360 and PS3

Stream music, photos and videos from your Android phone to your game console using this tutorial.

There are plenty of ways you can stay connected with all your electrical devices. With cloud storage apps given access to our files over many formats, NFC starting to becoming more popular, and Sony’s release of their SmartTags and SmartWatch, staying connected is easier than ever. One possible way of staying connected that’s often overlooked, is DLNA.

DLNA is a way of sharing files over a singular WiFi network, and is an industry-wide standard for sharing data. Android phones are only a small portion of a DLNA-enabled device, and as well as MP3 players and digital cameras having DLNA technology within them, both the Xbox 360 and PS3 also have it.

This means that you can essentially stream all the media files on to your game console from your Android device without the need for numerous wires. On the Play Store there are a couple of apps that are highly recommended for aiding you in the streaming process. The AirSync app¬†costs ¬£4.99 to download, but makes the streaming process easy. Similarly the Skifta app makes streaming very simple, and it’s even free.

    Download Skifta

    Download Skifta directly from the Play Store and open it once it has finished installing. When you first launch it, it’ll take a few minutes to update and connect to your WiFi.

  2. How to stream video from Android to Xbox 360 and PS3

    Choose your device

    You’ll first be shown a range of devices that can be chosen to host the media files you’ll stream. Simply select the device you want to start streaming with.

  3. How to stream video from Android to Xbox 360 and PS3

    Select playback option

    Now you’ll see a list of all the devices that your stream can appear on. If your Xbox or PS3 is connected to the same WiFi account, you’ll see them appear on this page. Simply press on the option you want to use.

    Which media file?

    The final part of the process is to now select the media file you want to stream. After you select it, the screen will go blank for a few seconds, and the file should then show up on your Xbox 360 or PS3 screen.

    On xbox. Be sure to download the optional media update from xbox live so that your xbox can play .avi .mp4 and .mkv files. Do this by inserting a disc with an mp4 and an avi. Go to system video player and select current disc then play a video. If it plays straight off you dont need the update. If it doesn’t, a message will pop up telling you that you need the update. Make sure your connected because that message will take you to the download screen for the optional media update automatically no need to search for it.

    Question. I tried to use this app but my ps3 still recognizes my torrent movies as in supported?… It never use to do this until I updated my ps3 the last time. Since then none of my torrent downloaded movies on my android phones will copy nor play. Any help someone can provide so I can either convert any of my files on my phone. So I can get it on my ps3.
