BHome is an UPnP Media Browser. With this UPnP/DLNA-Client you can connect to your local UPnP-Servers, browse through the content and view the content. So there is no need to copy the content to your device first before you can view it. Go ahead and view it directly via your network. You're able to display photos, play videos and listen to music.
If you like you can also import the media files to your TouchPad. Or use the "Play To"-Feature to redirect files to other UPnP enabled render devices of your network (device and media server needs to support this).

In BHome you can only view/play files which are supported by webOS!

If the built-in app (Music or Photo & Video) isn't able to play/show the file, then BHome won't either! If you want to use any other files (avi, mkv, divx, flac, ...) you need a Media-Server which supports transcoding or use an external video player App.

  • Audio: DRM-free MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR, QCELP, WAV
  • Video: MPEG-4, H.263, H.264
  • Images: JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF

Since every UPnP/DLNA-Server is different not all will work with this app. Use the free version to test if yours is working.
The free version is identically to the pro version, except that the free version will display a reminder dialog from time to time.
Tell us if you have a server that doesn't work.

These are parts of the used User-Agent strings:

  • Normal connect: Video Stream: GStreamer
  • Fast connect: Browse: wOSSystem and TouchPad
