[Video/Music] How do I stream media files from my computer to my device?

You can play remote files with the ARCHOS Video and  ARCHOS Music applications. Make sure your device and the computer containing the files are on the same wireless network. 


We recommend to use UPnP protocol for Windows® users, Linux and Mac OS users will need to use SMB protocol .


From the homepage of the application, select the protocol for your operating system and then select the computer connected on your network. All shared files will be displayed. 
Please note that with UPnP, all your files are listed by type of media while with the protocol SMB the shared folders are are directly displayed. 





Your files need to be added to your multimedia library to be visible over UPnP.
