The Nokia Play To app connects automatically to DLNA devices and then shows you what type of media can be shared to your TV.

You can zoom in with your fingers on the display and then view the zoomed in area right on your TV.

Watching videos is supported on the Nokia 808 PureView and as you can see here I have several videos from a recent local air show.

Nokia provides a rather slick cover flow-type interface for music selection in the Nokia Play To application.
