Hi there folks, John here in the N.W. UK and new here so hope you don’t mind me jumping in with a tricky question.
Firstly, me WDTV Live is working fine and is correctly networked via my router. It is “seen” (and can “see” shares) on both my Windows PC and my Linux (Mint13) laptop.
With Windows 7 the “play to” function worls fine. ie I can use media stored on my laptop and directly “stream” it to my TV via thw WDTV Live box via Windows Media Players “play to” (dnla compliant device) service.
I can even stream to it with my Andriod phone, using apps called “BubbleUPNP” and “Connected Media”
I would love to be able to do the same with my Linux (Mint 13) laptop. Having done a lot of research I have tried “Serviio” and some other media servers (so many I forget their names !) but I have got nowhere
Is there any chance anyone on here can give a solid, easy to follow solution ? (pref one that does not involve a lot of Terminal commands )
If anyone can, they will make a lot of folks happy. This seems to be a common question from many Linux users out there according to the hours I have spent trying to find out how to do it !
Thanks for looking as they say
