In bed, too early to sleep so decide to watch a film. Too lazy to go fetch my laptop.
And watch the film on #VLC on me phone.
All the apps mentioned available on @fdroidorg.
@61 what is this command? (Not kde user here) is it similar to scp?
In a way. If the argument to --share is a file:// URL it copies the file to the target device. If it is an http:// URL then it opens the URL in a browser on the target device, and so on.
Or, if you're asking about #kdeconnect more generally, it basically bridges your phone and your desktop, allowing you to transfer stuff back and forth, initiate phone calls, read and answer SMS, etc.
@61 ok thanks !
I'm more of a #KDE man myself so sadly I can't give a definitive answer, but I understand #kdeconnect is not in fact KDE specific and should be installable just like any other package, regardless of your desktop environment.
I have heard it works on windows as well, though I haven't first hand experience myself.
@61 I've had success running minidlna on a fileserver, which shares video files over a local network. VLC supports it out of the box.
