I have content share only under video on my media servers.
HEY! i have a few of these. in the manual it tells you what it will play from a dlna server. its not much. i spent a lot of time figuring it out. for this box, get serviio(search for serviio on google, its free) and when it finds your "sony bd player" CHANGE THE PROFILE TO "direct tv hd-dvr" that profile transcodes EVERYTHING into something this device can play.
what that does is says anything thats not mpeg2video with mp2 audio, transcode to that.
the sony bd player profile serviio autodetects WILL NOT WORK!!!!
im sure it works for some nicer sony devices but not this one.
serviio works on windows linux and mac.
i have used it on windows and linux
windows is easier.
audio seems to "just work"
if yours doesn't email email@example.com
and i will send ya the relevant lines to add to your profile.
P.S. i have tried EVERY other dlna server. serviio isnt the best. for this device, its the ONLY choice.
here is audio lines if you have issues with audio transcoding
I HAVENT TRIED THIS! may need to change lpcm to mp3. this is at least close tho.
