This application contains a UPnP and HTTP server and a UPnP client. The server is running in the background as a long-running service, and you can use another application simultaneously.
This server distributes all videos, photos, music, and eBooks (including .pdf) to clients by default over the local Wi-Fi network and, if configured, over the Internet.
It can be used by standard UPnP clients over the Wi-Fi network, but you can also use your favorite web browser to access your videos, music, photos and pdf over the Wi-Fi network.
The UPnP client, which is part of the app, supports all Android file types, but if you prefer, you can use VLC (for example) to play video or audio files remotely by UPnP.
With such an application, you can use all the files exported by your Android device, from another Android device, PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad …
When using a web browser as a client, you can write comments with emoticons all over the page. Only the author of a comment and administrators can delete it. Files can be defined in categories to distribute in shorter lists to specific users. You can give details about your photos, videos, … in the comments, and users can write what they think.
You can select multiple files of the same type on the web page to play them. Videos are played with HTML5 video support, webm and 3gp work fine, but mp4 may be limited depending on the device. Audio is also played with HTML5 support and some formats cannot be supported. All images work fine on a webpage, but only PDF is properly supported by a web browser, under Ebook category.
If you already have a UPnP server, you can use the client to access it.
The TV with a Wi-Fi adapter (possibly through the DVD player) can easily use the UPnP server to watch videos and photos, But if you have an Android TV device, you can also run the server and use the client directly to your TV, allowing full file exchange between phones, tablets and this TV.
The HTTP server can be used over the Internet from your WiFi network by simply configuring an external port number in the configuration. If a non-zero value is given, the application tries to configure your internet gateway dynamically by UPnP, otherwise you have to configure it manually.
In addition, you can set user names and passwords to access specific files over HTTP and limit access over the Internet. Passwords are always encrypted on the network.
The setup is dynamic, but it seems best to override the default server name, font size, and if you plan to use the internet create usernames and passwords before actual use .
This application supports many languages like English, French, Arabic, …
To read eBooks over WiFi, another product is required: Acrobat Reader, qPDFViewer, FBReader, CoolReader or ZoReader. To read eBooks remotely using HTTP, you must use an eBook reader with OPDS catalog support.
You can start and stop a Wi-Fi hotspot by clicking the icon at the top right of the server window, but it does not work on all devices. It requires the WRITE_SETTINGS permission. By clicking on the same icon on your other devices, you can connect to a Wifi network dynamically. The password should only be given the first time.
I forgot to set in comment the call to code under development, all my excuses.
