Hi. I use MX Player on my Sony TV (android).
I want to play videos from my NAS, but I can not make it work.
I have entered the server name (/Johansen) and I have tried with the IP address (192.168.1.106), but I only get an error.
Perhaps the problem is User-id and PW for my NAS.
I will be happy with suggestions for solutions.

Currently, MX Player can't list the videos stored in the NAS.
If it supports file listing just use a browser or use a NAS client to open the files.

If your android tv is rooted, you can simply mount the nas server as a local drive by command lines or use some apps like CifsManager to mount it. Then MX Player can read it as a normal directory.
