Android Cannot access SMB shares on Windows 10

Make sure your media folder is shared to this user. I will presume you know how to set up a Windows share.

Install Kodi v.18. Until Microsoft fixes SMB v.1 (maybe in June), you cannot share to earlier builds.

(More info: )

In Kodi > Settings > Services > SMB > Default settings (min none, max v.3).

In Kodi File Manager > Add Source > Browse > Add Network Location > (Protocol SMB) > Enter fields: Server Name, Shared Folder, Username, Password (do no attempt to browse there).

Once you've succeeded in creating a link to your shared folder you can choose it as an Add Source shortcut for all media.

NB: Make sure you instruct Kodi to remember your password.
Thanks, but I tried that and "Connection timed out" after about 1 second...
So frustrating.
