How do I find out, if I have a Smart TV?

The strongest indicator that you probably own a Smart TV is the availability of a network port on the back of the TV set. Usually this is labeled ‘LAN’.

You can connect your TV either via cable from this port to an identical port on your internet router. The other option is to to enable the ‘WLAN’ (Wireless LAN) / ‘WiFi’ option in the menu of your TV.

In both cases make sure that your TV set is connected to the same network as your smartphone.

Most TV sets that have such a connection will show up as ‘Play to’ target in ‘Nero Streaming Player’.

You can also use DLNA product search to confirm if your TV is a DLNA certified product: https://spirespark.com/dlna/products/. You can search by manufacturer, product type or device classes and capabilities.

Some of my videos and music on my phone don’t show up in Nero Streaming Player App. Why?

It can happen quite frequently that videos and music purchased on a mobile device have coyright restrictions and cannot be streamed by a 3rd party app.

If the video that is not show up is a video recorded by your phone, make sure your phone is connected to the Internet, as it is likely that you have the iCloud option turned on and your video is stored on iCloud.
