So, I’ve searched both the OSMC and the KODI archives and there doesn’t seems to be complete walkthrough on how to add an SMB source.
using the OSMC GUI
A lot of posts mention things like 'adding a network location" or editing the sources.xml file, but there isn’t a single step by step for doing this from the home page.
I think the way to do it is to go
Videos -> files -> "Add Videos…"
But then you get the esoteric “Browse <none>” page that just makes my brain hurt. I feel like I’ve been down this path so many times before and every time the steps are different.
it honestly seems to be a dark art.
Does someone have the complete steps ? and if so, how do you remove an existing source ?
(I upgraded from RASPBMC to OSMC today, but my sources.xml isn’t working, so i want to just scrub it and start again)
And if really, the best way to do this is to just hand edit the sources.xml file, then fine, so be it, i will assume the GUI is broken. But I’d like to know the correct format.
