- [Voiceover] Once you have local content set up in OSMC,…you can make it accessible to other PCs…and devices on your network using Universal Plug and Play.…All you need is one…of the many UPnP compatible media players out there.…To enable UPnP streaming in OSMC, start at the home screen,…then go down to Settings, then Services,…then scroll down to UPnP/DLNA.…Enable Share My Libraries and Announce Library Updates…to allow other devices to play OSMC content.…
You can also enable Allow Remote Control via UPnP,…which allows remote sources to control OSMC.…For instance, certain media players can tell OSMC…to start playing videos.…UPnP support is extremely common in desktop media apps.…In fact, it's built right into Windows Media Player.…Press the Start button, then open Windows Media Player.…You should see your OSMC device…appear under Other Libraries.…Click on the device, then click Videos, then All Videos.…Then double click on any video to begin playing locally.…
If you enabled UPnP Remote Control in OSMC,…you can also play content on OSMC…
