Just use plex, it's super easy to setup and you don't have to be on your home network to watch it

Why you use third party app when there is a app in the settings that allow you to mount any smb directory as a local SD card folder ?
I don't exactly remember where is it, maybe at the bottom of the storage menu. ( and I don't have my z2 to check :/)

Gonna add myself to the plex camp. Pretty great app. Use it on ios and android. The android app is much better, far more options.
