Hi jo308,

First, please make sure that you can play music on your Pi using the Squeezebox Server. The best thing how to test this, is playing a radio stream. If that works, you’ll need a network share to access your music files on your PC. In the system settings of your PC you should find a corresponding option for network sharing. Then, by right-clicking on the folder you want to share, you should find the option to grant access to the folder on the home network. Then you can connect a network path in the Filesystem/mount plugin. You can either display the available devices or enter the path manually. Via a Windows PC, file sharing is done via Samba by default. In this case you have to enter „cifs“ in the third input field. For a more detailed explanation, you can also click on the „Show help“ button.
