The PS Vita and PlayStation TV now support DLNA. It seems that the European and Asian PlayStation Stores now have the new Network Media Player app which can be used to stream your video or music servers from your PC to your PS Vita or PlayStation TV.
As you can see from the pictures, the app is very slick and NeoGAF user Jannax notes that you can scroll through the options pretty fast. If you’d rather have your media locally, there’s an option for that too. You can copy over the items housed in the media server to your PS Vita’s memory card.
Unfortunately, the Network Media Player app does not work in the background, so you’ll have to resort to the Vita’s music app or Sony’s Music Unlimited service for those moments when you want to game with your tunes blaring in the background.
As Brad noted last month when the application was announced, it’s interesting to see that this is nowhere to be found in North America. We’re curious about what exactly is holding up the app’s localization or if the application will make its way over to the western side of the pond at all. In any case, you can be sure we’ll keep you updated.
