I've been wondering if theres an App for letting DLNA clients see my Mac as a DLNA server.

Pointing that the target device does not browse DLNA servers, it just receives a targeted streaming.

In case anyone is wondering, it's a UC46 Mini Projector

It also works with Miracast, if by some miracle someone know how to use it on mac...

What software or scripts can enable this?

There are two free options you can try:

VLC offers a more friendly GUI interface though (IMO) it's much more limited. ffmpeg is much more powerful, but it requires you to be command line savvy.

Personally, I prefer ffmpg. They have a tutorial on how to stream point-to-point, which is what you are looking to do

Point to point streaming

If you want to stream "from one computer to another", you could start up a server on one, and then stream from FFmpeg to that server, then have the client connect to that server (server could either be on client or server side computers). Or you could do a point to point type stream, like:

ffmpeg -i INPUT -acodec libmp3lame -ar 11025 --f rtp rtp://host:port

where host is the receiving IP. Then receive the stream using VLC or ffmpeg from that port (since rtp uses UDP, the receiver can start up any time).


ffmpeg -i INPUT -f mpegts udp://host:port
  • neither of then support subtitles, i need some app that do what iStream does, but with subtitle, anyone? Commented Sep 17, 2017 at 18:17
