I have recently installed an UnRaid storage NAS box and migrated all of my media from Windows 7 (where I previously had DLNA sharing through WMP to my Samsung TV) to the NAS. The original intention was to add the SMB shares from the UnRaid NAS to Windows 7 and continue to stream my media as I did previously, but I found out that Windows 7 WMP does not allow you to stream files from a NAS; you can only stream local media. That sucked balls!
Anyways, that's when I went digging around for a DLNA streaming solution that I could use to stream my media directly from my NAS to replace the functionality I had with WMP. I came across PS3MS and after around 4 hours of fiddling around, I now have a fully functional solution which streams more media formats that I ever had before. Also the quality is fantastic, playing high quality movies with full support for pausing and restarting, skipping forwards and backwards, etc.
I used these instructions to get PS3MS running on UnRaid, but I used the latest version of PS3MS (vv1.20.412) -> http://lime-technology.com/wiki/index.p ... dia_Server
Then I used the samsung render file that was posted by djfred in this thread but include the user agent for my Samsung Series 5 TV -> DLNADOC/1.50
A copy of my conf file is below:
- Code: Select all
RendererName=Samsung 5 Series LCD TV
Anyways, I thought I would post for the benefit of others. Good luck - I am going to watch a movie on my new set up
