DVD Player+ Phone Edition:
The only requirement that the app has, is that the Windows PC and the Android Phone must be connected on the same network.
A few words: Thus, in a home connectivity scenario which is the most usual for our app. users, there exists one external network line for the Home's Internet, that goes to a Network Router. From the Router, the Windows PC is connected to it either through a cable wire (if it is a Desktop PC), or through WiFi (if it is a laptop). A laptop of course, can be connected by two ways, either by WIFI or with the use of a cable (if it has a built-in network card). On the other hand, almost all smart phones or tablets are connected to the same network through a WiFi connection to the same router. All the above possible cases, Dektop/Laptop with WiFi or cable and phones/tablets are suitable for our connectivity requirement.
Example of a Connection at home!
Example of a wireless connection at home: The Laptop and the Phone are both running the DVD Player+ (Windows 10 and Android edition). They are both wireless connected to the same Wifi hotspot (e.g. to the Home's Router that holds the Internet Connection) and their IP addresses, usually, are different only on the last digits.
The above IP's are provided only to showcase the example. In a real life scenario the IP addresses are provided from the WiFi Hotspot and you can't handle them directly. You only have to connect your laptop and your phone on the same network!
Network Connections Supported:
2 DIFFERENT TYPES OF NETWORK CONNECTIONS SUPPORTED
The logic diagram of the two different cases that the app supports:
WiFi only: the Windows PC is a laptop and it is connected through WiFi to the Router. The smartphone is connected to the same network through WiFi also. The router is not required to be on the same room with the two devices.
Wire & WiFi: the Windows PC is a Desktop PC and it is connected to the router through a cable wire The smartphone is connected to the same network through WiFi. The router is not required to be on the same room as the two devices, but the desktop pc must have a large length cable to plug in to the router.
EXTENDED USE CASE:
Moreover, you may connect your Windows 10 PC to your large TV display or to a larger External Monitor and simultaneously use your phone as a remote control playback on your TV. This way, you forget the PC at all, you relax on your couch and you enjoy your movie. This is the most extensive and powerful scenario for the whole app. In fact, you enjoy a DVD movie on your large TV screen, without having a separate DVD playeror a remote control for it. All can be done with the use of your PC and your phone!
