With the stock player I discovered yesterday a new feature. When playing a song with the CD cover visible and you press on the cover you get a ribbon of buttons above it. Yesterday, I swear, for the first time I saw a new feature.
It looks like a square with a tiny hole and a arrow coming from that hole pointing up. It means you can stream directly from the stock player. Pressing on it brings a new window up where you can connect to a player.
Unfortunately when I try connect to a valid player to which I want to stream, the stock player cannot connect to any, stating none player is found.
However once I got a message on my blu-ray player Samsung BD-D8200 that an unknown source is trying to connect to it (Sony nw-F806 of course
) and I allowed it, but still F806 was unable to connect to it.
The there is also a "party streaming" mode, but from reading online I figured it only works with Sony products, receivers.
Anyone has more info or input to this?
I have firmware 1.01 (no serial for updating it) and stock player is 1.4.1. Yesterday I managed to update "music player" app (not stock player) to version 5.0 if that has anything to do with the new feature showing up.Edited by GamePat - 5/16/13 at 11:42pm
