We have been waiting for full on DLNA support on BlackBerry for awhile now since BlackBerry first joined the DLNA group. We saw parts of it creep up in BlackBerry 7.1 but it truly starts shining on BlackBerry 10. In the video, pictures, and music app on BlackBerry 10 you now have the option to “Play On.” This allows you to play the video, picture, or music over HDMI or also stream and control it on any DLNA compatible player. Both my Samsung DVD player and Samsung TV are DLNA compatible players so I could easily stream and control the video playing from my BlackBerry Z10 to my 46” TV wirelessly.
On top of that you do have the option in the settings to share you pictures, video, and movies to other DLNA compliant players so you can totally control it from your TV. I was just surprised at how seamlessly it works. When I try to do this with a Samsung Galaxy S3 I had nothing but trouble and clearing caches. This worked the first time out the gate!
Here is what the pictures app looks like:
