What Zapstreak Does?
Zapstreak is a library (SDK) that allows you to play media files (music, video & photos) wireless from itnernet or a mobile device (be it Android or iOS) on a DLNA-enabled devices. For example: connected and smart TVs, game consoles, HiFi & home-theater setups.
The only requirement is that both devices, the source (phone, tablet) and the playback destination (TV, HiFi) need to be connected to the same network. This is usually WiFi, but can be LAN as well in case of TVs and other large appliances.
If you do not have a connected TV or smart TV at hand, simply install the XBMC software on your PC or Mac. After installation go to
System » Settings » Network » Allow control via UPnP
and your computer should be discoverable by Zapstreak and Shortbeam.
