With the Media Streamer UPnP AV control point application by Nokia the 770 evolves into a device suitable to interact with a PC-based streaming server. I was not able to get the semi-commercial streaming server application running that Nokia is promoting , but I am successfully using Twonkymedia´s server and the Philips Media Manager . Installation under XP went easy. I had to enter some ports into the internal Windows firewall and enabled the applications in the firewall. After that the folders containing the media need indexing. An upcoming version of Media Streamer will be video enabled, according to an email Visa Smolander of Nokia wrote to a member of the Internettablettalk Forum.

The built-in image browser may be not as handy as a full fledged PC software and the indexing each time sucks, but the display is sooo great. And especially great are the “little gamers” from Sweden.
