I'm trying to configure media sharing under Windows 8 (pro). I found an option in PC settings->HomeGroup Allow all devices on the network such as TVs and game console to play my shared content but it's disabled (I've attached a screenshot).

I saw that the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is disabled, but when I'm trying to run it I get an error Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

Windows 8 HomeGroup Settings

    In Windows Services, OPEN THE "Media Player Network Sharing Service" and check the dependencies tab, see if those services listed are started also. – Moab Sep 27 '12 at 16:38
