    How to download and install


    1.) Go to the releases page and download the latest release

    2.) Make sure you have the latest PyNX

    3.)Extract all of the zips into the root of the SDCard


    How to use


    1.) Once you have everything installed, turn on your Switch and open PyNX from the Homebrew menu

    2.) Open 'Switch Media Host.py'
    Rename this file to 'main.py' to have it launch instantly

    3.) Give it a few seconds to load

    4.) Go to the URL printed on the Switch, and you're done!


    Themes


    A theme is very easy to make. To find your themes, go into the Config.ini file found in the SwitchMediaHost folder. At the very bottom of this file, you can see your themes. A theme looks like this:

    black = black, white, lightgrey, black, icon.png, Switch Media Host

    (Background color*, Font color*, Hover text color*, Scroll bar color*, Main logo, Title of page, Background Image)

    You can use HTML color codes as well. To change your current theme, edit the line in Config.ini that says 'theme' to the theme you want.
    Note: The scroll bar has issues with the background image, HTML issue


    Config.ini


    Inside of Config.ini, you will find a few settings.The first setting is the Theme. Change this to the theme you want, all of the themes are found at the bottom of the file. One other setting is disable-video. With this enabled, it will not load videos on the main page (Like 1.2.0 and below). This allows for faster loading times in most cases. Another option is events. With this enabled, on special holidays it'll change your sites theme, like Halloween ;). This setting is on by default.

    Link to his GitHub page!

    Aye! This is actually really cool. There are times I want to share screenshots/videos, but have to open ftpd snap.

    Hopefully when video support comes, no longer. So far so good!

    Thank you so much for posting the link, I will figure out something for the videos soon. I dunno if you'll be able to stream from inside the browser (due to how Nintendo saves videos), but you'll be able to download the clips at least.

    At first I was thinking ROMs. But never mind it seems.

    Either way cool.

    Looks really cool, I tried one and it stucked on "currently loaded 0 files", maybe it's coming from my browser but I'll check that later. Keep workin' on it, even if it doesn't work properly for me, it looks really good and it will be useful after a few updates !

    Where did you extract the files to? It's supposed to be on the root of your SD. And thank you so much! I'll try to improve upon these issues :D

    I'd rather see a VLC Port. Which is probably easy because ARM64 variant. That and it'd be easier than normal to port it with LibNX.

    Yes I did. I also tried to download the app through the appstore but the problem is still the same
    Tried with both Vivaldi and Firefox

    Do you use plex frequently?
    Because if you do, you should known its much better
    Of course, you need internet to stream from the server
    However, with vlc, you can have your media stored in your device and stream them without internet
    But guess what?
    With vlc, you first need to download the video and put it in the device manually
    And guess again?
    You can do the same with plex with the sync feature
    So you see?
    Well, personally, i think plex is the best media player and streamer

    Hmm interesting. It might be getting confused with your folder setup. When you get a chance, could you tree your Nintendo Album folder? if you're comfortable with that of course. :bow:

    I can see why you'd choose that over VLC. But in my personal use, I'd rather have VLC.

    Oh, at first I thought it was like a dlna media server.
    I guess it's acting as a python web server, you need a browser to connect to the switch IP.
    Thank you for this tool, and good luck with adding the videos.

    Personally I would rather see an Emby port for the switch.

    But yeah a Plex port would be cool.

    The new update might fix your problem, but I am not fully sure. But it's worth a shot, update will be rolled out to the app store soon or you can get it on GitHub instead.

    This is neat, now the only media I can see myself removing my SD card for is a converted replay video from Smash.

    If the Smash replays are located on the SD card somewhere (I'm sure it's just in the album), this could come in a future update :wink: the problem with the videos is that it's the format of the video doesn't work that well on web browsers, and I need to find an efficient way to get around this.
