UPNP Browser connects to all media enabled devices on your network and allows streaming content directly to the phone or tablet. With this App it is possible to view pictures, play music or watch a video stored on a UPNP enabled device.

Video support is limited, it is recommended to install MXPlayer or VPlayer as these are specialised video playback Apps with far superior CODEC support. If installed UPNP Browser will allow you to select you’re referred player instead of using the native VideoView.

The intention of the developer was to create a lightweight UPNP application, the APK is less than 1MB. There is no persistent storage of browsed UPNP results, no cache file consuming valuable storage space! All UPNP browsed results are live which also means that there is no fancy album or cover art, just simple folder and file icons. Movie, music and picture files appear as scorllable lists, see the screenshots for an idea of what to expect.

This app does not claim to be DNLA certified and is in the early stages of development. Please help the developer by providing constructive comments that will assist in further improving the App. All feature requests will be considered!

PLEASE NOTE: UPNP Browser does not contain any media, all pictures/photo's/music and movies are streamed from UPNP Devices located on your network. For example PC's set to share content, NAS boxes, XBMC/KODI, Twonky Media etc.

Required Permissions-
# full network access - for obvious reasons, needs to connect to and stream from UPNP devices
# allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception - required to contact UPNP devices
# prevent tablet from sleeping - you wouldn't want it to switch off whilst streaming!

Completely free with NO Advertising! Please don’t forget to rate.

This App was written using Basic4Android also referred to as B4A. The best Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool for developing native Android apps.

The only app that works No other app in the market detects windows media player share on this huawei ideos S7 slim, running CM9 by asturel. On the downside; crashes quite frequently, the layout is not landscape tablet optimize, no feedback when a button is pressed & no option to select all. Thank you.

just what I needed Does what it says, simply and cleanly. Wish more apps had the same goal.

Alan French

Simple and fast Does not save any information to the device and so there is no cover art like over apps, instead files are presented as a simple list with icons. Fast and easy to use.

John Taylor

Good start Simple to use, does what it says, good first release

Sophie French

patrick hickey

Ulf Grasse

Works Does what it says, no fluff. Wish it was a bit more customizable.

Richard Cabrera

Doesn't work.. Note 4..Installed the app tried running it. Always kept getting unfortunately app stopped working. Tried multiple times but never got passed the stopped window..

Stuart Halliday

Doesn't work If it can't play from a Subsonic server with DLNA/UPNP turned on then what can it play I wonder?

Rick B

Ok but... ... unless I'm missing something, it can't play entire albums. It just plays the selected track. It would be good to have a few settings, particularly font size - the writing is huge on my Galaxy S4. If I jump around tracks in an album too much it returns an indexoutofbounds error. Very lightweight and fairly stable. Quick to recognise and grab the index of available servers.

Very Good Start My server sends 160x160 jpg thumbs with the same name as the video along with music sending their thumbs. Showing those and having the track skip buttons work would make this perfect for my kids to play content I have hosted on my Asus router.

Works Flawlessly with Mediatomb, No adds no Frills just a a file browser... just set your favorite mediaplayer as default and good to go!!

tabish shaikh

Wonderfull app App is too good above the expected but the font size is too big pls make the font size small.

Ashwin Nanjappa

Simple. Great if you just want to browse and play single file at a time. Cannot show pics in slideshow or play audio files as playlist.

Raphael Majeed

Fast, functional, does what is expected. Minimal permissions.

Mike Webb

Crashes when I browse to my mp3 files on a dlna server

Ian Cullen
