Can't see server in VLC

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have Emby 4.4.2.0 running alongside pihole on an installation of DietPi on a Raspberry Pi 3b+. Recently, I updated PiHole, the emby server and diet pi.

 

Since then I have been unable to browse the DLNA server in VLC on my Windows 10 machine, which is what I've been doing to watch files the server can't transcode.

 

I only want to access Emby on my local network, if that makes any difference.

Hi, do you have other dlna clients you're able to test and compare with? For example have you tried windows media player?

I didn't think to check WMP! Silly me.

The files do show up in Windows Media Player.

Uninstalling VLC and reinstalling (3.0.10, 64 bit) doesn't seem to solve the problem. 
I get a "upnp search timeout" in the logs.

 

Is there anything else I might be able to to try other than trying previous releases to find a working one? Or is it likely to be something else and not VLC itself.

 

Thanks for your help so far.

I'm not sure. Could it be an issue in vlc?

Completely removing VLC and reinstalling seems to have worked. I think it might have been an issue with Windows Firewall, that went awry when doing the VLC auto-update previously.

 

Thank you for your help and your time!
