Stream from unraid on LG TV?

Hello

I have a 4k LG TV, and I noticed I could see the usb drive attached on my router without doing anything specific...I guess it has to be something with dlna or upnp? On my router, it just says "Enable media sharing"

How could I see my unraid server on my TV as well?

 

Thanks

I've installed MiniDLNA (Binhex).....Didn't really know how to set it up, so I just clicked on "Done"

It worked right away on my TV

The only thing is I have 4 shares (MOVIES, TV SHOWS, MUSIC and PHOTOS)

I can see 3 of them, but not TV SHOWS....any idea why?

Thanks

without any information from the server, I can only guess that one share is not setup correctly

Maybe...I will have to look at it

However, i can access all my share thru SMB (from my Xbox with VLC, and from my WD TV Live, and also from a Raspberry pi B3+ with Kodi)

Is there any specific settings PER share I should look at?

Maybe the client is borked and doesn't parse spaces in share names? Try changing the share to TV_SHOWS and see if it changes.

Yes.....now it works with TV_SHOWS  👍

But I realize now that my TV doesn't seem to read some of my MKV files ☹️

Need to find out the format of those files

Or install Plex on your unRAID server and Plex Client on your TV and let unRAID do things for you on the fly. Well that is if your TV supports the Plex app.

 

That what I did for the 3 Vizio TV's in my house and Apple TV/Plex on my Non Plex Supported TV.
