I'm using Windows Media Player 12 as a DLNA server in Windows 7. When I add new files to my
%USERPROFILE%\Videos directory, they show up on my DLNA clients just fine.
However, I've tried adding new folders to the Videos Library by clicking on the
<#> locations link from the Videos Library and choosing
Add.... Note that this is the same dialog that comes up from going to
Organize->Manage Libraries->Videos in Windows Media Player.
I've also tried dragging and dropping the files directly into Windows Media Player so they show up there.
Neither of these options made the files show up on my DLNA clients.
Is there a way to get Windows Media Player 12 to share video files outside of
%USERPROFILE%\Videos over DLNA?
