Microsoft has done some damage to WMS, but you can still access it.  I cannot promise that it will meet your needs.

I am able to see the computer now but all the videos have X's beside them. The couple that don't have X's fail when trying to play them. Thanks Michael

What file types are they?

EDIT: Have you tried using a virtual server?

I tried Tversity and couldn't get it to work either, I downloaded Serviio and it works great. Thanks

I use an older version of Tversity v1.7.4.1. I believe and it works flawlessly, there are also only certain file type that are compatible

Unless you have the one of the older version of Tversity, it is not going to work as it is unsupported now. I used to use Tversity myself but switched to Serviio. Also not all file extensions are compatible.

 I use both Plex and Playon for streamimg at home. Plex is by far the better of the two. However, you need a roku or some other device to play on tv. Playon works great with mediashare, but hogs a lot od cpu.

This is what works for me.

Serviio works well but I would hate to be in the middle of streaming a 2 hour movie and something happens to the connection that kicks you out.  There's no way to resume, REW, FF, 30SKIP, bookmark or anything.  So for movies I just plug my laptop into a spare HDMI port, mirror the display and launch XBMC.

 

However Serviio works well for music.  I streamed music to HR24, H24, xbox 360 and even my Yamaha RVX-493 networked audio receiver. I recommend giving it a look.  

 

For music its worth having proper ID3 tags on your collection.  Things like The beatles are listed 3 times in my collection each with different songs under them.  For example:

Beatles

Beatles, the

The Beatles

 

I still have to figure out how to fix that easily.  I don't have time to manually go through a million songs.
