Getting files into OSMC


I have just installed OSMC on a Raspberry pi b+.

What is the easiest way to put all my music and videos onto it? I have tried setting up a share on my windows PC but OSMC won’t take a username/password for it.

I have also tried creating a samba share on my pi but it seems the samba service wont start/restart giving the error:

Failed to restart smbd.service: Unit smbd.service failed to load: No such file or directory

How exactly did you install Samba ? Can you post your debug logs with the log uploader please ?

Samba was already installed when I tried to install it.

Samba is not installed by default on OSMC.

Did you try to install it via OSMC settings or via the command line ? Still needing those logs…

Where do I find the logs?

In OSMC settings in My OSMC you’ll find a log uploader option that can upload your logs and provide a short URL to type into your post.
