Hello everyone,

I am having trouble watching videos on the television via the computer on the TV's video app. I bought two of these computers from costco about a month ago. one of the TV's is connected directly to the router, the other is connected wirelessly. now when i open the "media app" on the televisions, they recognize my computer, my computer name is listed and on the DLNA1 line and everything, except the root folder is empty.

does anyone know if i should create a new folder on the computer for the TV to recognize it, then able to play the videos from the computer to the TV? my root folder is blank, there is nothing there. am i missing something here? or do i have to make a new folder on the PC, or change some settings on the televisions? any help would be fantastic!

im stumped at the moment, ive tried many things but no luck.

have a nice day!
