    Hello Everybody

    I have used my HTC One X to stream photos and songs to my TV via DLNA.
    Can i do the same in the Apple iPod Touch?

    I don't even need to stream songs, just photos and camera Videos would be fine.

    Most of the DLNA application i have seen for iOS is to receive the content in iDevice, not to send content from iDevice.

    Isn't there such application for iOS ?

    From memory, Plugplayer used to do this. A search in the app store should find it if it's still available.

    Good Player and Air Player do what you need I think.

    Yup, it does. Also does BUZZ Player (last icon at the bottom right; first tab in the dialog. Works great!)

    Unfortunately, neither of them can act as an UPnP server, only as clients.

    All the 4 applications only boasted about playing media from external sources.
    I want to stream photos and videos stored in my iPod Touch to DLNA compatible TV.

    Both Pluglayer and BUZZ Player can function as an UPnP server. I've tested both of them and worked fine - at least with the UPnP clients I've tested.

    Yep, as long as the TV supports DNLA, Plugplayer which is still available and has been updated will work just fine.
