    How to stream youtube, vimeo, etc. to my TV using DLNA

    I guess everyone knows iMediaShare for Android. It shares online streaming video content (youtube, vimeo, etc.) via DLNA to all available DLNA clients (TV, tv players, etc.).

    Now, I want to achieve the same result on my ubuntu 12.04 laptop. Best case scenario would be to share my desktop via DLNA. Second best would be something like iMediaShare, but for GNU/Linux.

    Are there any options you know of? As far as I could find out, there are some DLNA server programs for ubuntu, however, my goal is not to stream video files stored on my laptop. I want to stram live video content directly to my tv.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks

    I am also looking for the same program but no luck. In Linux/ubuntu there is no way to stream directly to tv.
    The only solution is to install a DLNA server and it can be browsed from a DLNA compatible unit.
    Some DLNA programs: PS3media server, tvmobili I prefer these two.
    In the following link you can find a tutorial howto stream the desktop, but it is dated back 2011.

    Try out eezUPnP
    it's for streaming content directly from the laptop to a dlna device.
    Doesn't have anything for streaming youtube or internet stuff though.
