ASUS Router Quick How-to: DLNA Media Server Tutorial




What do you think about this video?

Clifford Fernandes: Hi all

I have connected a HDD on USB 3.0 port and able to access from my devices. I would like to know if it is possible to transfer media from my PC to the media server any softwares or hacks to do that or the router itself supports it.



ZakZky007: Outdated info, is there a more current tutorial that would apply to DSL-N66U? Please.

Nitin Kumar: DLNA doesn't work on my RT AC66. It shows "scanning" all the time in the 192.168.1.1. No file is shown in WMP, tried several times but nothing. It is so annoying :(

xondutube: Well, I got a new RT-AC68P and mine doesn't support subtitles. I can watch movies but without .srt support.

demian smith: can install Plex server.

Cory Wilson: Why won't my Movie artwork show up on my MP4's?  If I make a media player server using my PC then my artwork will show up on all devices, however if I just use my external drive plugged into the RT-N66U as a media server, then I get no movie artwork at all.  I can't find an answer anywhere on google. 

Advait Thakur: Like the hard disk, can we connect the PC directly to the router via USB, so that we can play the media stored in the PC ?

Kaynin: how do I add files to the storage after its connected and stuff?

Uk Gamer: I get nothing but dlna errors on my ps3 with this making phone having a nightmare

Repent Your Sins: Well... I got my Black Diamond RT-N53 and can't do that, because I don't have a USB port. Thanks for wasting my time watching this and writing this comment ASUS

Chuan Jin: I set up everything based on the tutorial, but I don't understand why I can't copy files on to the new router server from my computer.

Teammy Kuma: WD My Book 2 TB can use media server ? (firmware : 3.0.0.4.374_159-gc73ef88) 

Aron Dyche: So, thanks for providing no useful information like how/where to add media files, permissions, etc.

Rohan Mehra: So does this router's media server pipe over subtitles, anyone know? I know technically DLNA is a fixed standard, but it's actually inconsistent, especially with hardware devices. Eg. Tversity software DOES do subtitles well (usually), but twonky (on iomega devices etc...) does NOT. Both are DLNA certified. Thanks in advance to anyone with a definitive answer.

veganath: Go to your NETWORK you should see the router and a shared folder "sda1"

Daniel Saidi: I am having some problems with that the router does not reindex its content, or that it takes an extremely long time for it to do so. After restarting the router, it only lists some folders. Anyone had this problem?

eizol568: Looking to buy the Asus RT-AC66U Gigabit Router and wanted to know if I hook up a WD via ethernet, will the software support sending videos via ethernet to one pvr and use wifi to another tv?

gustave13: we need to ask this to the creator of DLNA standard. Thus, change your questions into: "Does DLNA Standard support for subtitle or not?" :)

gustave13: see my previous reply, man. Hope it can help~

gustave13: have you set up the share permission or such in the USB application menu??
