I'm trying to get the 'play to' function working in windows media player. I have my desktop and laptop both on the same network and they can detect each other fine. network discovery, media streaming etc are enabled on both systems and i have set each device to 'allowed' under streaming options.
I've also enabled 'allow remote control of my player' in the wmp stream options. I want to be able to use play to on my laptop to play the music on my desktop speakers. My desktop shows up in the play to list but when i try to use it, it just hangs on 'contacting network device' and then eventually says 'device is not responding'.
Has anyone got an idea on how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
