I have a Nexus One full of songs and when I go to my friend's house I would like to play songs off of it. Since I have my phone connect to my friend's WiFi, the phone has a local IP. If my phone's IP address is 192.168.1.101, I would like to be able to navigate to the phone via:
And have it open up a windows folder like any other share. Then I could copy my songs, play songs off the share, etc. Is something like this possible? Is there an app I can buy?
There are a few apps that will give you similar functionality to what you're looking for. I'd take a look at this article, it may be able to point you in the right direction.
SwiFTP would probably be your best bet, although I don't know if you could STREAM music, which it sounds like is what you're trying to accomplish. Might just have to copy to his computer via FTP, then open from there.
EStrong has a Samba (Windows File Sharing) client, but I don't believe you can serve files, so that will more than likely not do what you're looking for.
And the other one listed there, On Air, I'm the least familiar with. Haven't used a Mac since the screens came in several shades of green, and never had any experience with using the WebDAV protocol in Windows, but based on the description it looks promising.
