I'm trying find a way to stream my music and videos to devices on my network that support DLNA such as a Samsung SmartTV, some speakers that are connected to my router and maybe an Apple TV (it's not mine so I can't jailbreak it).
Anyway, I was wondering if it is possible to have something like airplay on MAC OSX where you can choose the audio/video output (to an apple tv for example) from within the players.
I can do this from my android phone with an app called bubbleUPnP in which I choose the renderer (ex.: SmartTV) and choose the file to be played.
I don't want to be able to access my media library through my TV which has a terrible interface but rather to chose a file on my computer and have it output on my TV or any kind of DLNA renderer like the speakers in my living room that are currently connected to my router (and can be used with iTunes on a MAC/PC or bubbleUPnP on Android).
I think it's unlikely that Android can do something Linux can't so maybe I'm missing something...
Any ideas? My laptop has both Ubuntu(Gnome) and Manjaro so I'd be happy with a solution for any of them.
