I’m currently trying to set up OSMC on a RBPi and would like to stream from Windows 10
Let me just say that I am aware that my problem is not new and that this is a similar thread to many others. But the others haven’t answered all the questions I have and I am still lost.
Steps I have taken:
*Shared the relevant folders and the drive (an external HDD in Win 10)
*Removed password sharing in Network Config (Win 10)
*Made sure my AV/Firewall isn’t being screwy - I’m using BitDefender
Problems I am having:
*Unable to browse SMB on OSMC - I know that there are problems with browsing on Win 10
*Unable to set up specific folders.
My PC name is ‘ASGARD’, the external HDD is the G: drive and the folder is called ‘TV’
Entering “smb://ASGARD/TV” into ‘Add Network Location…’ in OSMC yields ‘Connection time out’.
The same thing happens with “smb://ASGARD/G” or trying lower case etc
My workgroup is just called WORKGROUP
Through going into the various forums, I keep coming across the advice to use fstab or edit an .xml file. The issue with that is I don’t know how to properly format the fstab, and I’m also not sure what to put down for any SMB username and password - I am logged into Windows 10 using a ‘@live.co.uk’ account.
Can anyone offer some help? I’ve tried youtube tutorials too, but all those can simply browse for their folders of interest.
