DescriptionWith FRITZ!App Media your Android device can access multimedia data stored on a hard drive connected to the FRITZ!Box or a computer. What is more, FRITZ!App Media turns your Android device into a remote control for the home network, which you can use to play music on a networked television or stereo system.
The videos that can be played on the Android device must be available in one of the supported formats. These formats vary depending on the device, but generally do not include all conventional formats and resolutions.
With FRITZ!App Media, connected wirelessly over the FRITZ!Box, you can play back the contents of your digital music, photo and video collections directly on your Android device. The media contents are provided by a UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) media server like the FRITZ!Box or the Windows 7 operating system.
If a network television or stereo system is integrated in the home network, use the Android device to select the desired device for playback. So it is convenient to listen to music stored on one of the hard drives connected to the FRITZ!Box or on the PC using the superior sound of your television or stereo system. Devices with network support are designated as part of the "Digital Living Network Alliance" (DLNA), a standard that allows for the exchange of data between computers, consumer electronics, mobile communications and other electronic equipment in the network. If your stereo system is not network-ready, the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater N/G can offer assistance. The Repeater's audio interface takes on the task of transmitting digital music to the stereo system.
