    Hello,

    I have a local SMB hard drive that holds my movies.
    I want to stream these movies to my Apple TV using AirPlay.

    Is there an app that can connect to SMB hard drive and stream the movies using AirPlay ?


    Thanks!

    Does your drive also support UPnP? Then, you have several titles to choose from for true, non-mirrored, direct playback: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1503351

    Are you sure UPnP can't be enabled for sharing? Is it a self-standing (no-desktop) NAS HDD?

    The drive is shared using my router

    d-link 6740u which supports SMB but not UPnP.

    Thank you for your help

    That's bad news... any chance of getting a UPnP NAS enclosure instead?

    Unfortunately not

    Again thank you for your help.

    What's the UPnP solution ?
