USING KODI UPnP AS A MEDIA SERVER


 

If you’ve got a lot of movies, TV shows, and other videos on your computer’s hard drive, the Kodi media player is a great way to play them. But what if you don’t want to watch them on your PC? What if you’d rather see them on your television or mobile phone?

This where Kodi’s UPnP features come in. Setting your PC up as a Kodi UPnP server can give your entire home network access to the movies contained within it.

 

We recommend following this guide in order to get the best from Kodi.
