    where to begin?

    Like to smash this

    I can hoike a HDMI cable from my Nvidia Card
    into the back of my Viera Panasonic TV

    However I am unable to play
    a stored movie on my HDD via ethernet
    despite there being a MAC and IP address .

    Not good

    Windows 10

    can it be done

    From my L32G20 manual

    • AVCHD and DivX files are not supported by DLNA, but can be played by Media Player

    Lets do it

    or we handover to Plex, Serviio, or e.g DivX Player
    where I can only play Mpeg2 -- which sux as files are massive

  2. In home streaming to homegroup?

    Hi Stephen,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest in windows 10 . I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will help you with this.

    Windows 10 machines sharing a media library is remote control. With this option enabled, you can play songs to other devices on the network.

    Enable remote control by clicking 'Stream' and choosing 'Allow remote control of my Player'.

    Follow the steps.

    1. Open the windows media player.

    2. Try to click on stream drop down button.

    3. Click on 'Allow remote control of my Player'.

    Now, to play a song to another device, simply add it to your playlist and click the
    'Play to' button in the top-right. This will show a drop-down menu with the names of all the networked Windows 10 machines. Choose which one you'd like to play to and it'll bring up the
    'Play to' dialogue.

    In the 'Play to' window, you'll be given control over the remote device. You can play or pause songs, skip to the next song on the
    Play to list and even adjust the volume.

    I hope this helps.

    Let us know the status of the issue so that I can assist you better.

    Nokia N82 - headphone adaptor with remote

    Hi, I'm looking at buying a N82 when my contract runs out in ... gasp ... two days!

    However, I have one issue. It comes with a pair of headphones with a built in remote, but you can't remove the headphones and use the remote with a third party set of headphones.

    Is there a device that will enable me to do this? I understand the N95 comes with such a device, but I found the nokia UK online shop seems to be very limited and wouldn't tell me anything.

    To clarify, I would like to get a device that connects to my N82 with a remote control to control the media player (start stop tracks etc), and then a standard third party pair of headphones can then be plugged into this to allow me to have remote control AND
    third party headphones. The reason I want this is so that I can operate the media player without having to take the phone out of my pocket and go through menus etc.

    Allow remote control of my Player

    I'm a little confused. Where are the movies stored that you want to play and what are you trying to play them with?

    My setup is:

    Movies are stored on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) hard drive. All that does is just share the folders and files on my network.
    My computer actually plays the movies using the Kodi media player. It plays the movies on my HDTV via an HDMI cable.
    My HDTV is not a smart tv, it is not connected to my network in any way, it just gets the video/audio from the computer.
    Kodi has Ethernet remote control capability built in so I usually use an Android app on my phone (Yatse) to control the Kodi program running on my computer. My Android phone connects to my network via WiFi.

    Not sure exactly what setup you are trying to make work, but maybe using Kodi on the computer might be your answer:
    Kodi | Open Source Home Theatre Software

    Hi, thanks for having a go

    Movies are on my HDD,
    using windows media player
    ( used to work in win 7 as a media server )

    a good example is this video:

    now you can't save that tick as per OP

    this where it all goes belly-up
    my HDTV is smart-ish (* viera ) and is connected via ethernet

    Kodi is a fine product, but not a media server as such *Cool
