The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a smartphone from Samsung that was launched on May 3 2012 in London, UK. I think there are many friends have got this smartphone. Well, how did you use it in the real world? Have you tried its powerful connection function?
In order to make sure Galaxy S III would be useful in real-world situations, Samsung has added a few features that use technologies like NFC (Near field communications) and WiFi-Direct to make the Galaxy S3 to interact with “real world objects”. Let’s take a look at the specific introductions listed below:
NFC is an ultra-short range wireless communications protocol that enables devices to exchange short bursts of data. The distance is so short that it’s convenient to say that we have to make “contact” in order to initiate the transfer, but this should work through a glass for example. Samsung has modified the NFC feature of Android to support transfers as big as 1GB.
WiFi-direct basically allows two devices or computers to communicate with each other without going through a router (which usually managed everyone’s IP addresses). This allows WiFi direct to run in the same way that Bluetooth does, except with a much higher bandwidth.
GroupCast via WiFi-Direct: GroupCast is typically used to share documents with other phones via WiFi-direct (same router). First, all the participants have to connect to the same session, then the “master” device can broadcast while participants can write notes on top of the shared information. One can share a Powerpoint presentation for example. We really like the idea, but you need other people to have GroupCast as well, so until this becomes more universal (and even cross-vendor), chances are that business folks will stick to the good old projector.
AllShare can send a video from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to a Samsung TV that is compatible (I have tried with an LED 8000D). AllShare is based on DLNA, and although it may work with non-Samsung TVs, you can imagine that having all devices from one brand is probably the easy way to do it. AllShare can also act as a local server which lets you access local content from the web. To do that, you will need to create a Samsung account so that Samsung servers can initiate the connection between your devices over the Internet.
Well, today, in this article, I would like to show you a way to stream all video files from Galaxy S3 to PS3 via DLNA. Following is the concise guide for you.
1) Connect your PS3 and Galaxy S3(S III) to Wi-Fi
DLNA operates over Wi-Fi, so it’s essential that the devices you want to connect are both using the same Wi-Fi network. If you have multiple wireless routers in your home, you’ll need to make sure the Galaxy S3 and PS3 are singing from the same song sheet — so to speak. Once you’re done, load up the AllShare application — you can find it in your app drawer.
2) Configure your PS3 for media sharing
Fire up your PS3 console and scroll across to Settings. Scroll down to Internet Settings, and then down to Media Server Connection. Make sure this is enabled — if it isn’t, your PS3 won’t be able to ‘see’ your Galaxy S3.
3) Transfer videos to PS3 from Galaxy S3
Once the connection is established between your console and phone, the media on your Galaxy S2 becomes listed in the relevant section of the PS3′s media bar. Scroll across to the relevant section of the PS3′s user interface and locate your phone in the menu. Click the Videos folder and find the movie you wish to stream. As with musical tracks, you can use the PS3 pad to pause, rewind and fast-forward through the film — just like a proper remote control — even though the actual footage is stored on your handset. What’s more, you can also stream movies to TV with PS3 via DLNA.
