Do not appear the videos are stored to my SD card when I try to share by using sharing the Media library that comes by default in the system.

change the route but do not appear with the titles stored there.

what can I do?

capture

pd: I can access my SD card perfectly from my system. There is no complication, I can create folders and open documents, and videos.

thank you.

  • Does this work if you share the default videos directory instead of the SD card? I assume your TV supports DLNA? – Mike Wild Jan 31 '17 at 11:22
  • exact! the default directory it works perfect, but if, instead of using the video folder of the system, I want you to read the video folder of the sd card. not appear any video. it is a pity that I have elementaryos installed on my chromebook 2, and I have very little hard disk storage. I have to save most of my data on the sd card or in the cloud. – RcL Jan 31 '17 at 12:32
  • Can it serve things from subfolders inside Videos? Just as a little experiment, maybe try creating a symlink? ln -s /media/$USER/path/to/SD/card $HOME/Videos/sdcard – Mike Wild Jan 31 '17 at 12:37
  • Is that the symlink you created? – Mike Wild Jan 31 '17 at 13:19
  • @MikeWild thank you for your patience. I don't have access. – RcL Jan 31 '17 at 14:59

Back up all the files on your SD card, and format it to something else. (ext3, ext4, ntfs, fat32, etc.) It is possible that the tv does not support the file system on your SD card.

(IT IS A REQUIREMENT THAT YOU BACK UP EVERYTHING ON YOUR SD CARD BEFORE FORMATING IT!!!! ALL DATA ON THE CARD WILL BE LOST!!!!)

You may have to install a program such as gnome-disks to format removable devices. (It should be available in the AppCenter)
