How To: Stream media from Nexus 7 to a TV with Wi-Fi Media
The guys over at Engadget have discovered something which is quite useful for everyone. If you’re a fan (or an owner) of Google/ASUS’ Nexus 7, then you’re probably wondering how the hell you can view your digital content on your TV directly from the device. Unfortunately behind the lack of 3G capabilities that is one of the greatest fall-backs of the Nexus 7 – until now.
The great team over at Engadget stumbled across an app that allows you to stream media wirelessly from your Nexus 7. It works through WiFi and is capable of streaming at full HD quality. The app seems really clean, easy-to-use and more than simple to find whatever you’d like to stream. The only real major issue is that the app doesn’t have the capability to mirror your screen. As such you’re limited to only streaming content stored locally on your Nexus 7 or available via DLNA. That means no Spotify or QuickFlix streaming. Other those of you lucky enough to bypass international restrictions and grab a Netflix subscription. None of that too.
Wi-Fi Media is compatible with any Cavium PureVu-compatible streamer, including the HTC Media Link. Engadget used this one in particular to demonstrate the effectiveness of Wi-Fi Media. The streaming looks fast and clear and gives Nexus 7 (and any other Android device) users a good way to get all that rich content on the biggest screen in the house. The best thing, in Android fashion – everything is done without wires!
If you’re looking to get your content on the biggest screen in the house then Wi-Fi Media seems one of the best bets.
