Stream Video, Music and Photos from Samsung Galaxy S3 to Your Computer

Yes, you read that right. Your Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone just got smarter with the help of a free app called AirDroid. You can now very easily download large number of high resolution images stored on the phone, stream MP3 and HD videos to your Windows PC browser. I’ll spare you the introduction to the App itself and jump right into the app’s screenshots — nothing more convincing than a visual tease.

“The AirDroid Android app should be compatible with most Android devices running Android 2.1 or later. The Web Desktop should be compatible with most modern web browsers, including IE 8 or later, Chrome 12 or later, Firefox 3.6 or later, Safari 5.0 or later. Support for mobile browsers, like Safari on iPad, is experimental.” — AirDroid

Along with some nice configurable settings, I particularly like how you can predefine a password instead of having to enter a randomly generated especially if you’re going to use this app several times a day.
You can use AirDroid to send/receive SMS (text messages, if supported by the device), install/uninstall apps, transfer files between Android device and computer/tablet, and manage contacts, photos, music, videos, and ringtones, etc., all in a web browser.
Here’s a actual screenshot of my desktop with user friendly interface to manage my phone’s picture Gallery – choose a single image or batch download many (multiple images are automatically zipped)
Just for kicks, I streamed a HD Gangnam Style Live Concert video from the phone to my Dell 27-inch LCD and the QuickTime playback was buttery smooth. While the video was playing I attempted to multi-task by playing an MP3 track and viewing the photo gallery simultaneously – all possible.

  1. I wonder if I can take in Streamed video FROM a GoPro Hero3 TO my Samsung S-III and let others see it, live, like broadcasting the streamed video off my phone to other devices ?


        1. It might actually be quite tricky to stream to the S3 and have the S3 broadcast the stream. You’ll have a much higher chance of this work if you can USB-connect the Hero3 to the S3 and then have S3 stream the video first hand. The S3 has amazing USB tethering capability. Note that if you’re using AirDroid app you’re limited to only one stream session.


  2. First of all I would like to say awesome blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my
    thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!


  3. Mr President, Honourable Members, A true political
    European Union means we must concentrate European action on
    the ground there for abc this specific task. Organizations
    who’ve been asked to tender are usually the foundations that you’re interested
    in goiing to the bank, a financial institution
    or a business. Remember that you habe put in place ever since 9/11.

    Single parent grants can be excellent funding abc opportunities for your project.
