ASUS Router Quick How-to: DLNA Media Server Tutorial




What do you think about this video?

Patrick Luy: Is there a specific way I need to format the storage device? As an example, I primarily use a Mac as my main computer. So, my storage device, where I keep all my space consuming media, is in a Seagate external drive formatted for the Mac, and not Windows.

I have Windows 8 Dual Booted on my Mac. But I don't use it as much. 

Ralph Malek: asus rt-ac68u and plex server 

Hi. I was trying for many hours do changes and adjustments but unfortunately I will need your help to start this server on my new router, Please advise what information do you need to help mi out here 
Thank You

nuero82: Asus, you haven't had DLNA working properly in nearly 12 months across multiple models! Once your ASUS router (mine is AC68U) gets the dreaded Endless Scan that's it! No amount of resetting or rolling back firmware brings DLNA back from the dead. Just like that, a feature that made me buy your product is just gone! A quick google finds that this has been going on for nearly a year

JONNY-STEVE-47: hi can anyone help,having some trouble connecting my new HDD. i have all my videos pictures and music on a Seagate 1tb HDD and when i plug it into my router it shows up and plays all files on any compatible device.

 just bought a new 2tb WD passport HDD and when i plug it into my router it shows that it is plugged in but says ummounted and i cant find the hardrive on my tv or laptop.            using router RT-AC68U   thanks

An ivia: how to set permission on new account, there is no option to add read/write permission to new account

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ZakZky007: Outdated info, is there a more current tutorial that would apply to DSL-N66U?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

Alex Repented: 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"
