Re: Serviio to laptop possible?

Since you have the Pro version, you can use MediaPlayer on the laptop (or any other computer on your network). Of course, another option is to share your media folder(s) on the Serviio computer and access that share from another computer. Then you just play the file as if it were located on that computer.

Or have I misunderstood what you are wanting to do?

Panasonic ST30 Plasma, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku 4, Ultra and Stick, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 7 Home Premium, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram

HOWTO: Enable debug logging HOWTO: Identify media file contents

Re: Serviio to laptop possible?

you can also use VLC as DLNA renderer.

And there might be some apps in the store for that too.
