Using Streamer with files on NAS

Not a streamer problem I suppose but I need some help from other user that may have their files on a NAS.


Configurations:

DB is a MariaDB on my Desktop PC

My files are on a NAS in a local network


I can access the DB from my smartphone and I can play files stored on my desktop using streamer but I cannot play files stored on the NAS.

Since I have the same problem playing movies using KoDi/XMBC it seems to be a problem of user rights on the NAS but I do not know which setting to change...


I can access the files on the NAS from my smartphone using an app called "DS files" and from there I can play music. But of course I put in that app the credentials to access the NAS and I can only put in the streamer app the credentials to access the DB...


Happy for any help...

Hi Mathias,


I think your scenario is explained in this post:

Have you read it? I have a similar setup like yours and this works for me.


The trick is to (in short):

  1. Have a user with the exact same username on the NAS and on your Windows machine, with the exact same password.
  2. Run the Helium Streamer service using the Windows account.


Hope this helps. If not, let me know and we'll help out.
