ok so told us what you want

now tell us what steps have you tried to do what you want (aside from asking this forum)
"Don't come to me with 'issues' for I don't know how to deal with those
Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"

Tried to find the folder using the pi's "Add videos". No success.

on your win10pc did you share the video folder?
did you set permissions and access rights to the folder?
is the win10 pc connected to the network?
is the RPi connected to the network?
is the win10 pc powered on when you try to access the shared folder?
is there anything else you're not telling us?
