#StackBounty: #wi-fi #7.0-nougat #networking #media-player #vlc Not able to stream locally stored videos in android VLC

Bounty: 50

I wish to stream media files stored in my PC on my Android device.

I tried starting a DLNA server on windows 7 laptop with help of both in-built feature and a software called SimpleDLNA server, both of which immediately showed up on iOS VLC media player’s network tab, but neither of those ever showed up in the network shares tab in vlc media player of my android device.

The fact that it shows up in iOS device VLC player, so most likely there is no problem on the server side.

Android device details

Samsung NOTE 5 32gb

Model No: N920G

Software Version- 7 (Nougat)

Attempts to solve the issue

  1. I tried downloading beta version(3.3.0 RC_4-13,arm64-v8a) and an older version of VLC(3.1.0,arm64-v8a) on my android device.

It didn’t work, Pl help me out to resolve this issue.
