    Hello,

    I got my surface on launch day and I love how easy the DLNA streaming implemented (on my Nexus 7, I had to purchase apps that support this function and none of them works as well), I can stream skype to to my TV during video calls. However, seems there's no way to stream videos (I think streaming photos works) from IE to other devices? Does anyone have a solution? If not, is there any app that I can "share" the video (mainly from Youtube) on the IE to so that I can stream it to my TV from the app?

    Thanks!

    What is the other end receiving the DLNA? LG Smart TV? Boxxee?

    Or do you want to Receive on the Surface? (I have a media server, but right now I just open the files in Windows shares. But I haven't looked for an app yet)

    I have had much luck streaming local content to my Xbox 360 (Both on Wifi) works flawlessly (Have not tried 1080p content yet, but will tonight)

    I'd LOVE to be able to do that from my Surface to a Windows 8 PC instead of the XBox...

    Why bother when you could just share the folders on your surface and browse to them from the PC?

    You actually can, you just have to set up Media Player to receive content.

    It's a Windows 7 PC connected to my TV. I use WMP as the receiver and it works flawlessly. (I have to say it again, much better experience than my Nexus 7) However, my question is if there's any way to stream video content from IE on my surface to my TV (i.e. actually a Windows 7 PC). It seems IE does not have such option. I can stream a picture on the website I am browsing to my TV, but that's it. When I am watching videos using IE, there's no streaming option available.

    I'd like to know how to get my Boxee Box to even show up on my devices list, only my WDTV Live does.
