I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am trying to set up for media streaming from my PC to my Sony Blu-Ray player using the

on media streaming nothing happens. Also on my Blu-Ray player there is a DLNA server
tab should show up but it does not. Does anybody have any ideas on what to do to fix this.

News flash, Windows media player in Windows 8 can not play DVD's or stream them, there is no built in DVD player in Windows 8 so it's not broken, they simply removed the functionality, it can do music but that's about it.

I use Windows Media Center for streaming.

I have a Panasonic Plasma that has DLNA abilities and I'm just realizing that I might be able to play video off my Laptop onto my TV.

I found this site...14 Free Windows Media Server Downloads
and downloaded this...
But I have no idea what it is or how to use it.
I thought I was downloading something that worked in the background.

Can someone show me how to setup my Laptop to become a DLNA server?
Can I even DO that with Windows Vista?
I was already in the Control Panel and clicked "share" on my Public files but my TV cannot find the server

I assume I'll have to ask about how to set up my Panasonic UT50 TV to receive the signal in the AVS Forum...yes?

How do I restart DLNA server without rebooting the computer I've set up my Sony Blu-Ray player to connect wirelessly to my LAN It does this perfectly All the settings are correct and I can connect to the internet to reach all of Sony's applications The problem is with using Windows Media Player's built-in DLNA Server capability On a fresh reboot the blu-ray connects perfectly and I am able to stream media from my computer to the blu-ray However at some point when I'm not using the blu-ray its ability to DLNA rebooting without restart How do I computer? the server connect to the PC drops The next time I go to stream my media the How do I restart DLNA server without rebooting the computer? blu-ray tells me the server is starting How do I restart DLNA server without rebooting the computer? but it never does If I reboot my computer it works perfectly again Every time I reboot though I stand a chance of losing my entire system I'm constantly having to do start-up repairs on reboots but that's another problem entirely There has to be a service or a file that is causing this disconnect that I could restart or reload or unload or something other than a reboot It could possibly be my Kaspersky doing something weird but I'd think it wouldn't suddenly decide on its own to disconnect the DLNA server connection The next time I have this problem I'll pause all protection to see if that helps In the meantime does anyone know what I could reset when I lose the connection

A:How do I restart DLNA server without rebooting the computer?

Now that I reworked the title, I was able to play with my Kaspersky. If I pause all protection, the blu-ray can connect to the DLNA server. Once I resume protection, the connection is gone again. It's odd that this protection against my own network isn't there after a reboot, but comes in later. Does anyone know what I'd be looking for in my security software that could be getting blocked? I've found no settings that ask for a MAC address or an IP. I must just be looking in the wrong places.

Yes, I can try the Kaspersky forum, but they've never been helpful before and I don't hold much hope for this either.

Hi there,

I use the DLNA program TVMobili to watch videos/images on my tv from my computer. I recently got a pretty gnarly malware infection that one of the amazing people on Bleeping computer helped me to fix. I'm not sure if it was before the malware, or due to the fixing, but my computer no longer comes up when I look on my TV. I tried reinstalling the program to see if that might help by resetting attributes, but no luck. I appreciate all and any help!

A:Media Player 12 streaming, not all files show on my dlna device.

as weird as this sounds, try renaming a mkv file to extension wmv. Depending on
codecs installed, this may work. alot depends on the file formats supported by
both devices and what the receiving device is able to transcode. Windows does
not natively support mkv files. See the file formats at

Hi all,
This is not a very Professional question after all... But I use my PC for work and private things.
In the past few days I used a computer running Windows 7, and I shared my media with a PS4. Since I use a computer running Windows 8.1, sharing my media with PS4 does not work.
It seems this feature is linked with "home groups" (
or, and this feature seems to not be available for a domain member Workstation.
Any idea about that?

First off, welcome to seven forums... and yes you are in the right place!!!

I had a similar issue with my media server 2 months ago, the culprit was a recent antivirus update. It added a sw fiewall that blocked all local access to my media server shares. Try disabling any and all firewalls, or temporarily remove your av to test this theory.

Please keep us informed regarding your progress!

I'm running Windows 8 Pro - 64bit.  I have also installed Windows Media Center add-on.
Windows Media Player returns an error "Server Execution Failed" when attempting to load any non-music media file, such as .avi, .mp4, .wmv, etc.   These files open and play properly in the base Windows 8 "app" Video, and in Windows Media Center.

WMP opens OK from a desktop shortcut and updates it's music libraries.  It plays all types of audio-only media files properly. 

I have tried all the various "fixes" for various versions of Windows and WMP including removing WMP as a feature, rebooting and "re-installing" it as a feature... I've run regserv.dll, etc. all to no avail...
I just want WMP to be the default "media" player for all standard file types...

I am thinking about upgrading our server at work and I am trying to put together some rough numbers for hardware and software to see if the project will get any support One I Do Server really Windows software? need big ticket item is the operating system In my environment I can t see the benefit of something like Server rather than Do I really need Windows Server software? XP Our current network is composed of about XP based pc s and one NT server It was originally setup as a client server but evolved to a peer to peer with the server being just a place to store data on drives in a RAID configuration We have two primary applications that use shared data One is Microsoft Access which will work just fine on peer to peer The other is Peachtree Complete Accounting This is the one that depends on the structure of the network the most Previous versions where compatible with NT but the latest version of the software required Windows Server or for client server operation But since it will also function in a peer to peer environment we just changed the location of the data to one of the XP boxes All the pc s can access the internet through a SMC router that is connected to a satellite so currently we are in no way depending on the server for that What are the downsides for me if I just build a pc with raid drives and such but go with XP rather than Server Should I consider Vista Budget is a definite concern So I don t want to have to spend a lot on software if I don t have to And I don t have a lot of time to manage it either so simpler is better too Any thoughts on a recommended processor and or board I am thinking about a Dual AMD Opteron Thanks nbsp

Turns out it's a nationwide problem with WMP and you're definitely not the only person experiencing it. It's out of our control; hopefully Microsoft gets it under wraps soon. Check it out

I don't think the codec for Blu Ray is available on any free software.

I use Nero for a variety of functions, including playing Blu Rays.

One other possible issue... Even with software, Blu Ray will only work on certain monitor interfaces... it must support HDCP. On my system, I can play Blu Ray with my monitor connected via HDMI, but not through the VGA cable. I think I tried some software which will play it in a non-HDCP system, but only in degraded mode (i.e., not full screen). but, I forget what software that was.

Hello! For the past 2 years, which is since I bought this computer, whenever I try to open a file into WMP, sometimes it won't load and pops up an error saying "Server Execution Failed". I did everything I could like go where you uninstall programs and disable WMP and then re-enabling it, put the setting to automatic in the services.msg, EVERYTHING! I've had enough of this error, please, for the love of god, someone help me.

Somebody please help me. A walkthrough would be great. This is my problem. I have a server at work, I am a computer engineer, however the problem is I have not had much experience with servers. My task is to install some software onto the server (Windows Server 2003) so that the software can then be accessed and run on each client computer (PC that is connected to the server)

Would anyone have any tips, or be able to walk me through doing this ?

I have 2 DVDs that I just bought and work perfectly on my old Windows 7 laptop. They don't work on my new Dell Inspiron 3520. I'm not using Windows Media Player, I know that can't play DVDs in Windows 8. I'm using PowerDVD, it came for free with my laptop. When I play my DVD it stops responding. I tried using VLC too, but it seems as if it's stuck at loading for 1 hour. I don't think it's a codec problem because both of these are supposed to come with the codecs. The software isn't corrupted since they can run other DVDs. I have updated my drivers. My DVDs work in Windows 7, so what is my problem?

2) Just gives an indicator last shutdown was unexpected.
3) memtest runs through fine.
4) Shutdown is 100% random not any timed thing.
5) Happens when idle and at full use.
6) No blue screen at all.
7) No dump files.

Hello all,

I've looked around the forums and haven't found a decent answer to this...

Does anyone know a specific date for the release of the x64 version of the connector software for Windows Home Server?

I believe MS said in the first quarter of 2008, but I was hoping that someone had a more specific date than that... perhaps someone from MSDN or the WHS team can answer this question in greater depth???


A:Windows Home Server connector software (x64) release date?


The x64 Connector will be bundled in with Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 which Microsoft have slated (somewhat vaguely) as shipping in the first half of 2008.

My hunch is that we won't see this in Q1. As soon as a date is released we'll announce it over at We Got Served (We Got Served - The Windows Home Server Site)

I have a problem.

I run a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine that amongst other things, acts as a media store/server. I recently got a Windows Phone 7 handset that can only synchronise content via Zune (ridiculous, I know), but Zune refuses to install on Server 2008 R2, saying it can only be installed on XP and Windows 7.

I have installed most of the Win 7 components missing from Server 2008 R2 so I'm not worried about compatibility, I just want to know, how can I force install an application to an OS that it is not 'allowed' to be installed on.

If I can't get Zune onto the Server, I'm effectively barred from transfering music and video to my phone. Please help.

I have done all the trouble shooting I know how to do. I tried to uninstall IE 8.0 and it seems to have worked because I now have IE 6.0. I don't know what else to do. I tried reloading my drivers from my initial install disks. That didn't work either. It has to be something simple but I don't know what.

On rare occasions it plays a video with minimal problems. At other times, I cannot get the thing to work more than 3 seconds. Mine is wifi connected. I do not believe the wifi is the problem. I can play the same videos using the AirPlayIt APP and AirPlayIt media player on my iPod and iPad. That thing can play the .wtv files from MediaCenter with almost no problem - as long as I am NOT using the PC for anything else.

My suspicion is that I do not have enough horsepower in the processor.
Is there any way around that? Can I stop things or free up things?

Well, you have tried most of the things recommended. Have you run the System File Checker? This should restore original system files

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Also, a repair install should correct this

Repair Install

You have changed so much that you now have a different error, therefore I'd suggest one of the above. For future reference, while you had the original error, THIS may have worked as well.

can anyone enlighten me?

A:DLNA confusion

I'm only familiar with NAS devices being DLNA compliant so that any other end point device like a HDTV can see the media on the NAS and be able to play it back....without any need for a computer.
You don't need a DNLA router unless it also has USB ports for a hard drive that you want to get media from.

I'm not sure but in this case I think the BluRay player with DLNA must be acting like a media playback device that could play back from a NAS drive as well as its own BluRay media as well as maybe some Internet stuff. If the BluRay player was network share aware, then it could also be used to play back media from any shared forlder on the network including DNLA compliant NAS drives--shared network folders are a more encompassing way of playing back media, whereas DNLA is sort of a method for allowing relatively "dumb" devices to also stream the media.

The route I took was to get a Seagate FreeAgent HD Media player. It can stream from any share on the network, has a local port for USB hookup and for a FreeAgent Go drive, and also can stream media from the Internet like YouTube, NetFlix, Flickr, etc. I have DNLA NAS drives but I just don't use the feature because I don't need it.

A:DLNA Set up problems

Hello, just an observation, but since you did not provide the individual subnets, just by looking at your graphic one would say that your DLNA clients are on a different network, because your two routers are 'routing' instead of acting as access points. Maybe you can provide more insights on your configuration.

I've used TwonkyMedia server on Vista and Linux to my PS3 for a long time. Now I have a new Win7 machine and would like to share media.

Looks like it's built in to Win7 so I followed these instructions:
Play To - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows

and allowed all computers on the local network to see my media.

But the PS3 is not seeing my system.

A few days ago I did see something on my PS3 that indicated that something was being shared, but when I tried to connect it said that I was not authorized.

Now when I do a "search for media servers" on my PS3, I do not see the system.

Should work right?

The Serviio spec says .bmp and .avi are supported. .jpgs and mpeg's work fine with both apps. I just installed a free trial copy of the full version of Nero but can't get to TV at the moment to try it.

TV is a new LG47LW5700 and using Serviio 0.6.2 I've tried both the generic profile and the LG profile and see no difference.

Any ideas? I do not want to convert ton's of .avi's to .mpg and since all my cameras produce .avi, seems that should be supported.


A:Serviio DLNA problems

I just confirmed that the Nero full version free trial also does not support .bmp or .avi. nor transcoding. Could my LG TV be the problem? Do I need some transcoding? If so, how to I turn that on? Read something about profiles for Serviio but have no clue how that works. There's already an LG profile in there and that's the one I'm using.

My understanding is that Windows uses a DLNA server to host media to other devices on the network Has anyone found a way to alter the pre-defined categories that Windows organizes the shared media into I'm not sure if this would be a library setting DLNA? Categories Adding to or a server setting I have a Sony SMP-N and it streams recorded TV well from my media center box running W x The issue I have with the sony device is finding Adding Categories to DLNA? what I want to watch The Sony device is pretty limited in filtering and sorting It would be wonderful if there was an option to view by date recorded rather than the few that Microsoft has setup All TV Series Genre and Folder When you go to one of the categories the Sony device only shows the episode name So in 'All TV' category it's kinda pointless I included a screen shot of how media player shows the DLNA categories for Recorded TV Thanks for any help

I am trying to get my DLNA-enabled TV to wirelessly play video files stored on my Win 7 computer.

Two problems:

1) The file list displayed on the TV freezes so you can't scroll through it.

You have to wait three minutes or so, then scroll to the next item, wait three minutes, scroll to the next item, wait three minutes, scroll.

2) Playback mostly stutters and freezes, and barely plays at all.

The thing is, a few weeks ago everything was working just fine.

The computer itself is not running slow at all.

A little while ago the libraries on my Windows 8 computer wouldn't open. I was told I needed to delete then restore default libraries.. which worked fine. After I did this though my DLNA on the TV stopped showing any of my files.
I can find my server and it connects fine but when I go into any folder for music/video/pictures it says there are no files. They have all worked fine previous to me having to restore my libraries on my computer.
I've tried searching online and can't find any issues on this. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

I had a few DLNA servers (originating from the user accounts on my other desktop) showing up on my laptop under network location. At the time, I right clicked some of these and selected to remove the device. Which made them disappear from the network locations. My intention at the time but I now want to restore these.

The difference to the tutorial linked is I didn't completely suppress the feature via the process above. As I had left some DLNA servers alone and they still show (such as from our windows 7 laptop). How do I go about adding the missing ones back in?

I'd love to stream flv files to my LGTV like I do to another TV through a WDTV box on my (wired) network.
I find windows media player too clunky to use even for the files it does support so short of buying another WD box is there any way to make my video files visible to the TV over my network? The LG will play them off a USB stick but can't see them over the network.
I think I made a mistake buying LG but the horrible WM Player isn't helping any. WD has its problems too as it can't handle the more compressed FLV formats.

Just installed two different LG TVs (7600 and 8600) in two different locations with two different model routers with similar results. In both cases if I connect my PC via a hardwire ethernet connection to my router - and the TV wireless to the network, everything works fine - I can see the TV on the computer and can see the PC on the TV. I can locate and play videos stored on the PC on the TVs. However, if I change the PC network connection to wireless, I still can see the TV on the PC but the TV cannot locate the PC. The TV is still hooked up to the LAN and can access the internet, but cannot see the PC.

Hello Everyone-

I recently purchased a Sony Bravia KDL-60EX720, and I am having issues connecting it to my DLNA network running on my Mac. I have my router set up to allow uPNP and the TV is set up to allow rendering and automatically look for my network.
No matter how many different ways I try...I still can't seem to figure out why the one device cannot see the other!

I am running Serviio 0.6.2. I checked the firmware on the router, and everything seems up to date. Any advice on what to try next? I'm thinking there may be some issue with conflicting ip addresses, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Hello guys,

I have quite an odd problem. I noticed that every time I launch a DLNA-related application like LG Smartshare and Lenovo's SHAREIt, my touchpad and mouse mysteriously become unusable (disconnecting/reconnecting does nothing).

I manage to navigate through these applications and perform my intended tasks successfully via keyboard but to enable the touchpad and mouse again, I have to logoff/on and things go back to normal (which rules out the touchpad and mouse being defective).

It only happens when I launch these apps and the rest works as it should be. Any idea what may be causing this and possible resolution?

A:What software is better for a web server?

You should use a hardware server; I would say, either get a router that has firewall enabled service or think about IPCOPS distro for linux; If you have an old computer around with two network cards, you can easily setup a firewall with no problem.

Hardware is always the way to go if your going to get a firewall; Cisco ASA or Pix if have alot of computer to protect;

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

A:Web Server Software

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite? It has a web server function to serve pages directly from your computer, so I imagine that it has some way to preview them also. I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

I suspect you're going to have serious problems finding new software that is fully supported for Windows NT 4.0.

I don't know of any application that can scan any operating system to determine any type of problem and fix it regardless of corrupt files or registries. It sounds like you're looking for some type of Holy Grail software that fixes all problems. No such thing. Even harder to find utilities that work with an operating system even the maker of which doesn't support it.
