Windows Server 2012 Essentials Media Server Setup


  • Hi,

    At the moment I use my Sony Blu-Ray player to stream video from my laptop (Windows 8 & Windows Media Player 12) using DLNA, but I can only stream AVI files.  I'd like to be able to play MKV and MP4 files.

    I'm looking at setting up a home media server with Windows Server 2012 Essentials, but I'm not sure on the best way of streaming video to my TV.  Do I need a separate media streamer box to connect to my TV & the server, or can I connect the TV directly to the media server using HDMI?

    Any ideas would be much appreciated...
