Either AirPlay or DLNA is just a media controlling procedure, and it just sends the playback address to the inner media player on your device. So the presentation depends on the compatibility and steadiness of your hardware player. It may not work so well either if your wireless router is too old.

It doesn’t presently support mirroring, but the developer says it will be added in a future update. When it’s added, it will have an advantage over similar apps which does not support mirroring.

AirPlay/DLNA Receiver for Android is not a media server. It is a DMR (digital media renderer/receiver) only. It requires the use of other apps/programs to send media to it via AirPlay/DLNA/UPnP to play. All devices must be on the same network to function properly.
