Just got a laptop running Window 8 which I want to use to stream movies from my main PC running vista to the TV in the bedroom. The main PC has serviio running on it. The standard media player on windows 8 won't play MKV files so installed VLC player. Looking on the laptop file explorer can see the C: drive, the main PC user and Serviio. Clicking on seviio I can find my media files. But they wont stream directly but insists on “downloading” them first. Looking under network on the laptop I can see the PC which when clicked opens the list of shared folders. But when trying to open a folder to see the files its says I don't have the permissions. The Panasonic TV in the living room plays the files from the PC using its Media Player. So how can I stream MKV movies from my PC to the laptop?
