What is all this anyway?

Site is work in progress. If something doesn't work or is missing, feel free to leave a comment below with the issue.

The heart of this site is mainly centered around setting up and/or using my personal media server with all my movies and shows. I only have limited bandwidth, and this is all running off my personal file system, so please don't share your information with other users. There are three primary ways to watch my content.

    Using this site
    Watch directly from this site by clicking the Watch button above.
  • arrow
    Install Kodi
    If you are watching on a computer, this is my preference. Kodi is an excellent media player, and allows for direct streaming directly from my server. This method has the best performance of all other methods. You can download kodi from the Downloads menu above, or you can click here.
  • arrow
    Use the Emby App
    The Emby app is available for almost any platform. This is your best bet if you are usign a mobile device, or a smart TV. The app is also available on PS4 and Xbox. Check the Downloads menu above to get Emby for your platform, or click here to see all platforms. Do NOT download the Emby Server choices.

Each of these methods will allow you to play my files. I prefer Kodi myself for it's vast customization and configuration features. If you are using an Apple device, or a mobile device, I recommend using the Emby app. You'll find a video below and on the tutorial page for how to connect either Kodi of the Emby app to my server. If you want something to connect to your big screen TV that is independent of anything else, I can build you a small device and will auto configure it for you with my server on it. You plug it into an HDMI port on a TV or receiver, turn it on, and you'll have easy access to all my files. You give me $100 for parts cost and I will build the box and send it to you.

Whatever you decide to use, you should be able to find what you need to set it up on this site. If you need help, feel free to contact me using whatever channels you like. I respond most quickly to text or Facebook message.

Common How-To

    Using this site

    Use Navbar at the top of the screen to move around. Site automatically refreshes every 10minutes in case you leave it running and I push an update.

    Emby Server Info

    When opening the Emby app for the first time, select the option for manually adding server. Leave port number as it is and enter this as the host:

    tkw.myftp.org

    See video below for full instructions.

  • arrow
    Request Movie or Show
    My library isn't complete. Chances are you have something you want to watch that isn't on the server. Use the request button above to go to a site I set up for this purpose. Sign in with the same username and password I gave you for the server and you are in! Use the Search tab at the top to search for either a movie or a TV Show, then click Request! You can also see existing requests and status. More details in the tutorials page.

Setup Kodi

Setup Emby App

This video is performed on Android but it SHOULD be pretty standard across all platforms when using the Emby app. Even if you aren't using Android, your setup should be very similar to this. The only platform that will be different is Kodi. See video on left if you are using Kodi.
