    Can I turn on Media Streaming from the command prompt (for batch fil)?


    Hi,
    I started using W10 Media Streaming to access videos on my laptop from my Samsgung TV. This works pretty well most of the time, but, sometimes, I run into issues that get sorted by turning off and on the Media Streaming. Some other times, Media Streaming just randomly turns off so I have to turn it back on.

    I was wondering if there is any command that I could put on a batch file, to easily turn off and on Media Streaming without having to go Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Media streaming options

    Thank you.

    [1] Are you talking about WMP?
    [2] If so, does this work [ it Stops and Starts the Service ]? . . .

    Code:
    @echo off
    Net Stop WMPNetworkSvc && Net Start WMPNetworkSvc
    exit

    I hope this helps.

    Hi @Paul-black
    No, Im not talking about Windows Media Player, Im talking about Media Streaming.
    More info here.

    What Im looking for is exactly what you showed me, but with the service that runs the Media Streaming.

    Thank you.

    I have just spent a while looking on the Internet for you, but it wasn't much help. However, I did come across this which you might find useful . . .

    > Method 1: Run Windows Media Player Troubleshooter

    I do NOT use Media Streaming myself so I can't even look at what the actual Service is that is running.

    I hope this helps.

    I been trying to start/stop the serviceand check which one on the Task Manager Services tab comens on and off but I cant figure it out really and I cant find anywhere online.
    I also used tried the same approach with this tool with no success.
