If you're wondering how you can get the most out of your Oculus Go, perhaps on an airplane, traveling, or camping, you can use your phone (Android or IOS) as a wireless media server. 

Your mobile device will require hotspot functionality This functionality is essential as it allows you to access data from other sources besides your internal storage. Most newer mobile devices can connect to a hotspot.

Getting Started

Step 1: Download a DLNA Server onto your phone from the app store. 

According to Koolaroo Media, which had an exemplary definition: "DLNA stands for the "Digital Living Network Alliance," and it is a protocol that has been increasing in the consumer electronics market.

Once you connect the device to a DLNA server, users can then use and view their digital media over a wide range of devices and products.

For example, if you want to stream a video on your high definition television through your video game console, DLNA will allow that to happen. It was started in 2003 by the Sony Corporation, and it has taken off ever since.

In 2012, there were already more than 9,000 different devices considered to be DLNA compatible, with millions of units sold to homes and businesses. It offers a powerful means of connecting new technology that has many different uses."

The different devices connected to a DLNA server include Blu-Ray players, home theatres, tablets, smartphones, high definition televisions and video game console/

Step 2: Once downloaded from the app store, you want to add your intended types of od media. Since 2018, most forms are accepted, including 360 videos and pictures.

Step 3: On the Oculus device, open up Skybox or other video players, where can you import data. 

Step 4: in your DLNA server, it will give you the IP address of the device on Wifi. from that connection, you can stream externally off your Oculus Go Device.
