I'm looking for some sort of article for a non-Android person on how to share a USB Hard Drive on this Android device with other Windows PCs on my home network.
What sort of program would I need to do this?
...can I do this?
I wasn't able to get WebDav to see the USB volume. There just did not seem to be any way to see it and select it to enable a share.
I wound up going with a network storage device:
It is more than I cared to spend, but it is working very good.
Now, I am finding that the Kodi player does not know how to handle MKV files.
My Windows PC does not have the codecs for MKV files, yet it can play them fine in Kodi. Why doesn't the NextD device play MKV files through Kodi? Does the Kodi Android app not include the codecs for MKV files?
I can see all of the files on the USB volume in ES File Explorer. I can even get to them in Kodi.
But I rip movies from my PC, and I need to get them to the Android device so it can play them.
Nothing I tried seemed to enable me to make the USB drive visible on the Android device.
I installed a NAS326 device, put all of my media on it, and access it over the network.
