    New version supports SAMBA and NFS network share auto search function that don't need to set up and start up by default

    Enter into 'Vedio','Music','Picture' or 'All files' from home page, select 'Search network share' icon.

    After a while, system will be in the same LAN, and all of shared device name will be listed. Name including 'SMB' stands for that this device share folders based on SAMBA protocol. Similarly, it's the same as NFS folders.

    Selecting certain device and pressing ok button, A pop-up window appears for inputing account and password(if any question, please enquire the shared device of the owner)

    After inputing corret account and password, system will list all of the shared file name in this device.

    Select one folder what you want to visit.

    After visiting some shared folders, these folders will be recoded, and appear as icon form in the device list, and you can directly select to enter in next time, Don't need to search again or input account and password.

    If you don't need shared folder, you can delete the share folder by pressing 'menu' botton on remote controller.

    Hi Morgan, a few members including me as a new member are having trouble getting the A10 connected to our files or to find our local network. This resulting in it not be able to stream any files. Can you please have a other look at the Egreat A10 and please find a solution for this inconvenience. Being my first Android Mediaplayer hoping that this is a glitch and will be resolved soon. Best regards, Alex

    I am one of the members. Since a week I have tried every day a couple of hours to stream a video file without any results. I started I thread, because I couldn't find any solution and becoming frustrated. It's a great mediaplayer, but with this specific network issue I am thinking to return the A10. So please help!

    Somehow, I just solved it with my 2 PC's with turning the Firewall off.

    But the A10 cannot see the laptop, even with the same settings as my 2 PC's.
    Otherwise, via the laptop I can see the A10. Working on it...

    This very annoying for you I understand, because I also spent hours with this problem. And at that moment there were other users with the same problem. I hope Egreat fix it soon.

    I just bought the Egreat A11 search network share not working for me. I have no firewall, antivirus on. I have latest win 10 64 pro. I have samba protocol v1.0, on. Any idea when this will be fixed.

    Welcome...probably that you dont know how to configure hanwin..would be my Guess. Many tutorials are out there.
    If you use smb..maybe you did not enable network share and discovery on your pc.

    Thanks nenito2k but I have a previous machine and no problem network share and discovery on

    When I hit search network share it keeps loading nothing happens I have waited as long as half hour, also before I added one library and now I can’t even delete it no option
    Very disappointed unless someone helps me soon

    Like said many times already : disabling firewall on windows is a simple solution...and network share will work flawlessly
