    Media Streaming Turns off when i restart


    Hi All.
    When i reboot my PC Media Streaming is turned off. How do I keep it on?
    The service is set to automatic, WMP is enabled.
    When I turn Media Streaming manually, from the Network and Sharing Center, it works perfectly, allowing me to stream content from my Win 10 PC to my Samsung Smart TV.
    My Win 10 has many tweaks which might be the culprit.
    Any help would be welcome. Thanks

    edit: Win 10 Pro (OEM), 2004 19041.330, connection is from network router by ethernet to TV.

    :)

    media streaming will not turn on

    I need to turn on media streaming so that my camera can send photos to my PC using the home wireless network. (The camera maker's software tries to turn on media streaming itself as part of the install process, but the install fails because media streaming
    could not be turned on. So I'm trying to turn on media streaming manually.)

    What happens when I try to turn media streaming on:

    • In admin account, I open the "Media steaming options" settings, which says "Media streaming is not turned on". The OK button at the bottom of the dialog is grayed out.
    • I click the button that says "Turn on media streaming".
    • The cursor turns into a blue donut that spins momentarily as if waiting while something is happening. Then it goes back to being a regular cursor.
    • The button still says "Turn on media streaming". The settings dialog still says "Media streaming is not turned on". The dialog's OK button is still grayed out. In other words, it did not turn on.

    System:

    Windows 10 Home (64-bit) on Dell 660s. Security software at the moment is only Windows Defender + Firewall (default settings). This PC was originally running Windows 7 and was upgraded to Windows 10 about two months ago. Media streaming
    DID work until the upgrade to Windows 10, so I don't think it's a hardware problem.

    What I've tried so far, with no success:

    • Going to %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player and deleting the
      .wmdb files.
    • Opening Windows Media Player and selecting Stream -> Automatically allow devices to play my media.
    • Running services.msc and making sure that the settings are
      as shown in #3 here
      .
    • Running services.msc and verifying that Windows Search Indexing is enabled (set to Automatic).
    • Doing a
      clean boot
      and trying to turn on media streaming.
    • Removing Windows Media Player from Windows (via option 1 as shown here), rebooting, and reinstalling it.
    • Installing Dell SupportAssist and having it look for/install updated drivers.
    • Having Dell SupportAssist run a hardware checkup (no problems found).
    • Running various troubleshooters built into Windows 10 (no problems found).
    • Creating a HomeGroup and setting this PC to share pictures.
    • Creating a new Windows user account and trying to turn on media streaming from within that account.
    • From inside settings, "Reset this PC" to reinstall Windows. Then, doing 1-11 again.
    • Saying "pleeeeeeeeeeease" to my computer.

    Media streaming is not turn on

    Hi Jeffrey Yeo,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below questions:

    1. Which version of Windows you are using? (To check, type: winver in start menu and hit enter.)
    2. Does the button ‘Turn on media streaming’ turns back to normal after the system is restarted?
    I suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Create a local account.

    The reason might be due to user account corruption that would have occurred due to number of reasons. So I would suggest you to ‘Create
    a local user or administrator account’
    and check if the ‘Turn on media streaming’
    button is working in this account.

    Method 2: Turn on Services.

    1. Press Windows and
      R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type services.msc and hit enter.
    3. Search for the following services.
    Start all the following services and change the Startup type accordingly.

    • Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service -
      (Startup type: Automatic (Delayed Start))
    • Workstation - (Startup type: Automatic)
    • SSDP discovery Sevices – (Startup type: Manual)
    • UPnP Device Host (UPnPHost) – (Startup type: Manual)
    • Function Discovery Provider Host (FDPHost)-
      (Startup type: Automatic)
    • Function Discovery Resource Publication (FDResPub)- (Startup type: Automatic)

    Method 3: Check Windows media player.


    1. Press Windows and
      R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and hit enter.
    3. Click on Turn Windows Features on or off on the left pane.
    4. Check for Media features.
    5. Expand Media features and uncheck the box which states
      Windows Media player.
    6. Click on Yes and Ok. Now, restart the computer.
    7. After the system is restarted, follow the same steps and check the
      Windows Media player option.

    Method 4: Advance sharing settings.

    1. Go to Control panel > Click on Network and Internet > Click on Network and Sharing.

    2. Click on Change advance sharing settings
      on the left pane.
    3. Select the options
    • Turn on network discovery.
    • Turn on file and printer sharing.
    • Allow windows to manage home group connection (recommended).
    • Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders.
    • Use 128-bit encryption to help protect files sharing connections (recommended).
    • Turn off password protected sharing.
    4. Click on save changes.

    Media Streaming Turns off when i restart

    media streaming not turning on


    I am trying to include a Bravia TV in the list of devices with which I can share media from my Desktop computer.. When I click the "Turn On Media Streaming Button" on my Desktop computer nothing happens. I also have a Surface Pro3 and the button works normally on this and streaming to the TV is enabled from the Surface Pro. Sharing between the Desktop and the Surface Pro works normally in both directions. Any ideas for a solution?
