Dlna

I'm trying to set up so I can see the photo files that reside on my Windows 10 PC on my internet connected television using the computer as a DLNA server.
I can see the PC from the television and the television from the PC with no problem.
The only photos I can see are the few the reside on my C drive which is my SSD that I use fro my program files.
All my pictures are on my D drive which is my HDD for storage. I've messed around my can fine no way of seeing the pictures.

Anyone got an idea??

Thanks.

Re: Dlna

I think you will need to look at extending your SSD with a partition of the HDD that is “Mapped” to the same drive letter “C”.

Re: Dlna

Could it be folder sharing privileges/permissions?

Re: Dlna

I use a synology server (NAS) for my DLNA needs but a quick google came up with this for W10:

Windows has an integrated DLNA server you can enable. To activate it, open the Control Panel and search for “media” using the search box at the top right corner of the window. Click the “Media streaming options” link under Network and Sharing Center.
Click the “Turn on media streaming” button to enable the media-streaming server.
Although this Control Panel doesn’t mention the term “DLNA” at all, the media streaming feature in Windows is a DLNA-compliant media server.
You can now customize the streaming settings. The default settings allow all devices on your local network to access the media files in your media libraries, and that’s fine if you’re on a local network with only devices you trust. You probably don’t need to adjust these.If you want to stream video, music, or picture files, add them to the Videos, Music, or Pictures libraries. You don’t have to move the files to the current library folders—you can add new folders to the libraries. On Windows 8.1 or 10, you’ll need to unhide the libraries to access them.
Once you have, either copy the media files you want to stream to your libraries or add folders containing media files to your libraries.
For example, if you have a bunch of videos at D:\TV Shows\, you could right-click the Videos library, select “Properties”, click “Add”, and add the D:\TV Shows\ folder to your Videos library. The files would still be stored at D:\TV Shows\, but they’d be visible in your Videos library and available for streaming from other devices.

It looks like it is just the settings on W10 that need changing.

Yep that worked.

Re: Dlna

Windows 10 Networking (or Notworking as I prefer to call it) is a total nightmare. However, I found this video very useful and finally I'm able to share media files on my three W10 computers, a Raspberry Pi file server, three Roberts internet radios and the telly. The narrator is English, too!
