Finally, a simple way to use your existing UPnP™ software and devices from your Android phone. Introducing PlugPlayer, an application to stream from UPnP™ media servers or control UPnP™ media renderers - all from the palm of your hand.
- Stream Music*, Video*, or Images* from a Media Server* to your Android phone
Already have a media server running on your home computer or server? With PlugPlayer you can access music, videos, and images from your media server and listen to it on your Android phone. You can use the built-in player, or choose your favorite external application.
- Control PlugPlayer from another Android phone or control point
Like listening to your Android phone while it is docked to speakers, but hate having to physically walk over to change the playlist or volume? With PlugPlayer, you can use your Android Phone to remotely control another copy of PlugPlayer.
- Control a Media Renderer* from your Android phone
Already have a media renderer hooked up to your stereo? No need to fumble around looking for the right remote. With PlugPlayer you can control your media renderer using your Android phone, creating a playlist from media on your media server.
- Push media from your Android phone
Use PlugPlayer to push media from the built-in server, or from external servers, to Media Renderers in your home.
-Stream from "the cloud"
PlugPlayer has built-in support for cloud-based media services such as CloudUPnP and mp3tunes.
- No Additional Software or Configuration Required
Other solutions require proprietary software on your home computer, but PlugPlayer uses the media server you already have. Plus, PlugPlayer automatically discovers devices on your network without the need for manual configuration or settings.
- Advanced Features
Of course, should your device not be discoverable due to your network circumstances, there is also a way to manually add a device. With PlugPlayer's advanced device configuration, you can stream music and video from remote servers.

Maybe ok for wifi. No sound on 3g and developer doesn't care to fix it or reply for support. Latest version is worse than previous. Force closes now.

Works well!! Stop complaining and read their site... most complaints are pure ignorance and user error. Running on nook color and droid incredible.

Works great -- much better than the stock DLNA solution on my G2. I only wish the items on the browse screen were larger for easier tapping.

Great. To play most vid formats, you just need to install rockplayer or vplayer and then untick the Use internal player Advanced option. result!

To all having the error code 10 issue: try opening up the app's settings menu and turning off the internal players. You have to be quick though!

Great app to use if you have a Windows Home Server or any other DLNA media server on your local network.

Nice concept, but flawed implementation. Slow startup on my Galaxy Sii, and won't play any videos from my server (mpg or mp4). Hope it improves.
