On Windows I loved the "Play To" function included in Windows Media Player to push content to my Samsung TV. But now that I am on Linux I don't know how to do the same thing. I found how to setup a DLNA server and retrieve it's content from the TV but this is not what I'm really looking for..

Any solutions?

Not a real answer... Expand the links in case they go dead (at least summarize). – studiohack May 6 '12 at 4:27
@studiohack It's to an SU question and an software page, not instructions – HackToHell May 6 '12 at 4:33
@HackToHell SU pages can be deleted... I was suggesting that you paste (with credit) or summarize proof of it being possible. – studiohack May 6 '12 at 4:34

Kinsky by Linn can do this across all platforms. It is in effect a uPnP control point.

For Android there is BubbleUPnP. This is capable of serving all DLNA/UPnP purposes outlined below, and is an excellent tool for carrying out tests.

On linux there is the gupnp-av-cp app that is part of gupnp-tools. I have read that it's also possible to to use pulseaudio (with rygel?) to push all system sound to a UPnP/DLNA device and am in the process investigating/implementing this. Will update when I know more.

On OSX 10.8, iTunes is capable of sending to both AirPlay and UPnP/DLNA devices.

To put this in perspective, DLNA, also referred to as uPnP, has three important devices:

  1. Media servers
  2. Media renderer
  3. Media control point
