Hereby, I am glad to show you what DLN is and which kind of format it supports. DLNA, stands for "Digital Living Network Alliance", is a non-profit trade organization which defines standards that enable devices to share stuff - photos, video, music - with each other. DLNA is designed to act as a bridge between various bits of kit, so that user can watch a film from PC on big-screen TV, play an MP3 from smart-phone on stereo, or send shots from the family photo album to wireless printer via tablet. DLNA simplified the process by establishing a single protocol that ensured DLNA - certified multimedia devices from different manufacturers would work together.
