QuestionAny DLNA client that works in windows 7? PinprofessionalJoan Murt26-Dec-13 23:10 
Hello all,
 
I've got Serviio installed into my home desktop.
 
It works wonderfully and it has extended our TV into a powerful entertainment center (that was supposed to be read with a fanfare in the background).
 
There are still days in which Missus wants to see some incredibly bad material that that box can throw at us.
 
When this is the case I'd love to be able to connect my laptop into the DLNA server to get the media contents of the desktop computer without having to navigate shared folders and so...
 
Those days Serviio have launched a new major revision and with each major revision they release as a trial (14 days) a web page which shares the contents for free with as many devices that get the right password in the same network.
 
Of course as my TV can reach serviio for free (it is a DLNA client) I expected to be able to get my laptop to work exactly in the same way, but I've got no luck with that.
 
I've tried to use:
- Windows Media Player (which has detected serviio but it seems not to be capable to get any shared media from it).
- VLC (last version) (which gets hanged just after trying to scan the network).
 
In the Wikipedia there is a list with the UPnP AV clients, but I would not like to start installing all of them and try if they work or not.
 
Any DLNA client recommendation that shows the extra information for the media files? (cover, length, ratings...)
 
Thank you all! and of course happy holidays! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
