#Plex media server has been bugging me with its need to authenticate via the web before it'll allow me to stream local files. But tonight the auth system wasn't working, so my own video wouldn't play on my network! Sheesh.
Off came Plex, and on went Kodi. But #Kodi won't run a DLNA service in the background without the main app loaded, so I'm left with #MiniDLNA. Not perfect as it needs to be configured by editing a conf file. But it is done now, TV is working again.

[Me, sobbing: You can't just call everything a pudding
England (points at jellied mad cow): pudding]
