Can a Galaxy 10.1 stream its stream to a Smart TV ?

May 20, 2012 7:19PM PDT

Hi,

I, thinking of using a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 as a "media center". If I have an APP running in Android, showing a video streamed from a service connected to Interned via Wi-Fi, can the Galaxy Tab send this to a Samsung Smart TV ?

Can a Samsung Smart TV run a HTML 5 APP ?

Streaming to TV

Console77,

Your tablet uses Google Android OS, but Smart Hub on the TVs does not. We recommend you look into downloading a DLNA app for your tablet because it would allow you to configure AllShare to stream music, video or pictures from external devices. We cannot make any specific recommendations given that many apps are from 3rd party developers. If you have any additional questions regarding a particular Samsung device, we ask that you please make sure to provide the model number so that we can better assist you.

Have a nice day,

I think the answer is no here.

But let's say we attach our tablet to the TV's HDMI input and then what happens?

A few folk are thinking you can project what's on the display to the HDTV but over WiFi which is too slow, that's not going to work at enough speed to move the screen to the other screen.

We can go over the math if you want.

Additional info on wireless streaming

Console77,

I've done some additional digging and suggest you refer to the following links. The first is a list of features for one particular model of the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet. The final feature listed says that this tablet (possibly similar or same model as yours) offers the ability to wireless stream to DLNA-certified devices.

http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/galaxy-tab/GT-P7510MAYXAB-features

And here's a video that explains how wireless streaming can be acheived between a Galaxy tablet and HDTV using AllShare.

And if you ever wanted to configure a Windows-based PC to stream to your TV, please refer to this guide.

DLNA does not do what they asked for,

DLNA does not show what's on the Android screen to the HDTV. Too bad you didn't dig into the HDMI output of the tablet.

Here's the HDMI answer from Samsung.com.

"Does the Galaxy Tab 10.1 have an HDMI out? If so, what's the output resolution?

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 does not have an HDMI port, but an optional 30-pin-to-HDMI adapter. HDTV adapter connects the tablet directly to the HDMI port in a TV or computer for 1080p HD output.*"

It does not reveal all though and since you need more details as to what it will put on the HDTV I suggest calling Samsung in your country.
