New App: Nero Streaming Player Connects Smartphone, Tablet, Smart TV and PC
The Nero Streaming Player is a new player app for smartphone and tablet that plays slideshows, videos and music on a mobile device directly to a smart TV in the living room. At the same time, it serves as a remote control, browser and playback device for the Nero MediaHome media server. The browsed content can then be sent directly to a smart TV.
