Network server to play movies though the PI

Wed Sep 18, 2019 9:13 am

Finally bought a Raspberry PI after all these years.

There are several things I want to accomplish with the PI for now, So I'm posting in the forum to gain advice.

Playing movies though the network.

The normal setup I have "windows based" is I have a Synology CS407 this is setup on the network so I can map a drive on the laptop and play the movies I want though VLC.

This is some what straight forward in windows in Linux or should I say raspbian(Linux) correct me if I'm wrong here. I'm not to sure.

I did sort of workout that I need to mount a drive/folder but again I'm only new to the PI, so my knowledge is really limited so far.

so please point me in the correct direction.
