  1. media player - no files found


    media player detects my pc and files when using wireless. when i go wired it will detect my pc, but when i press on my pc it will say "no files found". what does work strangely is the TVersity media server of the same pc, wired or wireless. i can see all
    files and folders correctly only when using TVersity. anyone know what is wrong here? im at a loss on what to do..

    Media Files Not Found

    I'm having the same problem. I was working up until a few weeks ago and now nothing. Media Player sees my Windows 7 machine, but when you open it you get files not found. I've tried rebuilding the libraries and even reinstalling Media Player 12 but still
    nothing. I'm currently using Plex media server on the PC but that seems to be 50/50 as to whether is shows up at all in the Media player app.

    This is further complicated as my 360 also shows the PC but also can't find any files. I'm 99% certain the issue is Windows media sharing related but can't nail down what or why. I've been through the usual disabling firewalls, checking allowing media streaming
    is enabled in MP12.

    I've had some success that I thought I'd share on here just in case it's of any help to you guys. I noticed that the account that media player was showing was the administrator account on my PC (Administrator <PC-NAME>). The main account used on the PC
    is not the Administrator account. I logged on as the administrator and found that the sharing was not enabled under MP12. I turned it on added the necessary folders to the libraries and voila I could see them on the One! I returned to the normal account and
    the files were still visible.

    Its more of a work around than a solution but I thought I'd just share in case. I hope it helps!

    Merry Christmas

    Media Files Not Found

    Im on windows 7 so I'm not sure how this translates to 8, but I found my sharing was actually blocking my xbox one. Also did this while my xbox was on. Not 100% sure if that matters, but I imagine it will.

    Steps to address:

    Control panel

    under Network and Internet click choose homegroup and sharing options

    There's a share media with devices heading under this there's Choose media streaming options, click it.

    Then your xbox one should be an option there to allow
