VLC and Windows 10 Shared Folders issue on mobile apple devices iOS
I have a strange behavior of Windows shared folders. It works perfectly on Windows 10 at my home network, without any issues. For an example, if I try to open
\\192.168.0.153\ from my laptop, which is
192.168.0.104, it will show a list of shared folders. And vice versa, if I try to open
192.168.0.153 pc it will show a list of laptop's shared folders.
But here is an issue with iOS application VLC. When i try to open Windows Network on VLC it works. Here is a video:
But as soon as I create a new shared folder on Windows PC it fails without any error message. Here is a creation of new shared folder on Windows:
And here is how VLC will react on this:
Something is wrong with Windows Share and VLC can't access shared folders anymore.
The most interesting thing is that if I delete the newly created shared folder, then VLC will work.
I don't sure if this is Windows bug or iOS/VLC, but if it works without any new shared folders maybe it could be fixed on Windows side.
Any ideas how to fix this?
