I'm exploring the player and having trouble with SMB. I use SMB all the time from other devices on the same wifi network, so I know I have the login information correct. Any ideas?


Address: (in my case. I have also tried the smb network name, but VidOn wants the IP instead.)

Domain: left blank, but I have also tried WORKGROUP


username: my Windows username

password: my Windows password


When I try to connect I get an IMMEDIATE "connection failed" error.


Does VidOn want some different formatting, or...?


Thank you for the help. I would really like to get this working!

Are you using the online Microsoft account as the account for your windows?


Try to create a local user account for your PC and make the share folder accessible to your newly created account.
