As a WFH project I picked up an old PC (literally off the road) and scavenged some parts and put together a working pc with an i5, 8gigs of ram and old video card. The only thing I needed to purchased here the hard drives (2 X 3TB WD Greens)

I've since moved all my media over and am running a plex server for music and video. I wanted to stream music from my NAS PC to foobar. I was wondering if this is possible, or if there is a better solution using different software to set up my own music server? I like plex and all but want something I can do on my own without being dependent on the plex service.

A very simple solution is using file sharing.
Point Foobar to a share on ther PC.

Alright i'll be that guy:wink:...... How do I point it there?

Edit: nevermind I just added the shared folder to foobar like any local folder and it works. Thank you.
