Streaming to UN46B7000 fails with Upnp Error: 716

by rhfritz / March 28, 2010 12:51 AM PDT

I've been using Media Player to stream pod casts to my TV for months. Without any deliberate changes on my part, I now get the following error: Media is not available. Details: The device could not locate the media. Please make sure the media storage device is connected to the network and the media is available and try again. HRESULT: 0x80040374; UPnP Error: 716.

Media player identifies the TV on the network just fine. But I can't stream any more. And the error message doesn't indicate to me where the error might be. Any insight appreciated.

I did recently switch from Trend Micro to Kaspersky Internet Security. But I've disabled it and still get the same error.

Same problem with UE37C6530
by nmg196 / July 7, 2010 7:35 AM PDT

I've got the same issue. Did you find a fix? I'm not using either of the AV products you mentioned and even if I disable my AV, I still can't stream Sad

I experienced the same error as above with codes matching the HRESULT and UPnP error when attempting to play through my Samsung TV. Try running through the following steps:

- Ensure that Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service (running as NETWORK SERVICE) has access to the files - if all users have read access, you're covered
- Ensure that the TV is enabled for streaming (Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Media streaming options)
- Ensure that the network connection to the relevant TV isn't a public network in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center (I haven't investigated this fully but it may be a stumbling block)


Checking the System event log (Start > Run > eventvwr), the underlying error from Windows' perspective (rather than from the TV's perspective) was as follows (I have replaced sensitive parameters with %s):

The Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service cannot process the request for URI '%s' from IP address '%s' due to error '0x80070057'.

0x80070057 corresponds with 'file not found' - if this code is different in your case, you should search Microsoft's website for the code to see what it means.

In my case, I had recently re-organised the file security of my media files and the local NETWORK SERVICE identity which runs the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service (WMPNSS) no longer had access to browse the location so the following was occurring:

1. Right click on media file > play to > TV
2. The Play To dialogue box opens and Windows asks my TV to play the file
3. My TV makes an HTTP request to WMPNSS for the file
4. WMPNSS attempts to locate the file but does not have access, writes an error to the event viewer and cannot satisfy the HTTP request
5. The TV reports that it was not successful
6. Play To displays the HRESULT and UPnP error you observed

In my case, I used the security section of the relevant root director's properties and Computer Managemet (right click on My Computer > Manage) to grant NETWORK SERVICE access to the files and restarted WMPNSS from services.msc (or > Services and Applications > Services) and it all started working again. Note that your problem may be diffferent but this should help you troubleshoot.

Disable extra network adapters
by squishy2010 / May 12, 2011 6:28 PM PDT
In reply to: Solution

Hey guys just wanted to let you know, I have had this problem a few times myself, but everytime I look online for help I could never find any that really helped, so I went back and pressed a load of buttons until I think I figured it out or at least it does for me so I thought I would pass on the solution I found.

Ok so I had hamachi installed, for those that don't know this creates a local network (LAN) over the internet, this lets you and your friends do whatever you can do on a home network, share stuff, play games etc.
Anyway if you have something like this then there is a chance you have 2 networks connected to your computer home and over the net. Well I disabled the hamachi adapter and boom it worked straight away with no problems.
Now you probably thinking but I don't have hamachi or anything like that, well maybe you have two home networks or internet adapters in your computer, I suggest to try and disable the ones that will not be used to stream and hopefully that will fix your problem.

I really hopes this helps you and others with the same problem or even inspire someone to come up with a permanment fix to this

Good luck guys

Thanks guys - just had the same issue. I had heaps of 'virtual' network adapters, including astaro vpn, and virtual box, to name a couple. disabled everything except wifi and now 'play to' works.

I've searched all over google to no avail to see what was wrong, and this is it! I disabled hamachi, and it worked like a charm. It would be interesting, however, if we could use hamachi on our TVs and control it away from home Happy

Easiest fix ever! I'm not real computer savvy, so I'm not sure if this is what jcn79 above was saying or not, but the fix for me was so simple i wanted to /bonk myself and have a V8.

Solution: Right Click internet/network, Turn Sharing between PCs and connect to devices on this Network ~ ON.

hotfix available for the problem now
by narssor / December 13, 2011 6:48 AM PST

Excellent - Thanks

just wanted to say that the above solution did it for me.

I got rid of the VMWare adapter in my Active Networks list --> and presto it now works.

It seems that the WMP does not like it if there are other adapters available - beyond the one which is used for the streaming.
