    Media Player won't discover my video folder


    Hey guys,

    I recently installed Media Player and use it to access media content from my PC via DLNA. My video content is stored on an external drive attached to me PC and is linked in the "Videos" folder under "Libraries" (i.e. when I open the Libraries folder on my
    C: drive it displays the video folders on my F: drive).

    When I first installed Media Player I was able to access these folders, however now they're nowhere to be found and I'm completely confused.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    :)

    Play To disappearing

    The only problem with using the Media Player is that my videos are on two separate hard drives. I have them separated into folders using letters of the alphabet for each folder and the N-Z folders are all symlinked from the Video folder to their locations
    on the second drive. The Media Player won't see the symlinks at all so I can't access half my video library from the Media Player. I can play them from Play To, however it'll drop out from time to time, usually if I reboot the media server and the Xbox is
    still on. It's annoying.

    Media Player problem

    just uninstalled it and reinstalled it does the same thing. says:

    can still use Play To to play videos

    Try a different folder

    It took a long time to gather all your media for playback. Please try a different folder.

    Still plays video in background

    will post video soon as it uploads to onedrive (607mb for 3 min of video)

    Media Player won't discover my video folder

    Just an update - I tried restarting my computer a few times and on the third go it was fixed. I think it may be a glitch with my external drive or computer. Anyway, problem solved.
