    Hi,

    Anyone know if there is a YouTube App for WP8 (Lumia 520) that will let me play youtube videos to my DLNA TV?
    (without having to download the video first).

    Thanks!

    Chris.

    No. However, if your TV is a SmartTV with a Youtube app on it, you can 'pair' your phone with any other device and this can be done with the YT web interface as well. Then your phone becomes a remote control for YT on your TV, essentially. But as I said, only works with Smart TVs or devices like the WDTV Live.

    No, Nokia PlayTo. Nokia Beamer is different.

    does it work with Xbox 360 and by extension, the almighty Xbox One?

    Never tried it, but as they both support dlna, I'm 99% sure it will. I know the ps4 doesn't have dlna, I might be wrong though (BIGPADDY will fight me, :P).

    Don't worry, they promised it's coming some time in the future at a point in time that hasn't been specified between tomorrow and the end of time. That's official from Sony.

    But the xbox's have it, and PlayTo should work.

    it doesn't work with the 360. Apparently the dlna that Nokia uses and the dlna that Microsoft uses are different. I just got off tech support with Nokia and Xbox after I couldn't get it to work, and they ask their "higher technical staff" and confirmed it. I couldn't get it to work anyways.

    Edit: I have no idea if they were telling the truth or if what I said even makes sense, but that's what they told me and I couldn't figure it out.

    I guess that 1% of my assumption was right. I'm sorry to hear that.

    Maybe the One will provide more DLNA bands?

    Hopefully when Microsoft buys Nokia, they'll be able to make them compatible.

    Edit: or what you said afterwards. The pieces are there, Microsoft just needs the implementation.

    I doubt it since the DLNA is optimized for Microsoft's own PlayTo, but we'll have to see

    Then if it is optimized for it, why won't it work?

    wrong PlayTo. Its optimized for Microsoft Playto, which Nokia playto isn't compatible with.

    Basically, the One will work great with Windows 8/RT, but not Windows Phone. I don't know if WP 8.1 will fix this, but it might.

    I didn't know Microsoft had their own PlayTo on Windows 8.

    go to devices, play, find your 360, then hit play again and it should work.

    Edit: forgot to mention that you have to do this while playing a video.

    Alright, well I asked Xbox support, and I'm not sure if I trust tech support, but he said yes, the Xbox One will be a DLNA renderer, which is the main reason they won't work together now.

    So.... Maybe. Well have to see in 3 days 6 hours and 46 minutes.
