AFP or SMB??

Not to familiar with all the different ways to stream but was wondering if Im a mac user whats better (easier) to use–AFP or SMB??

Whats the difference between them??

I believe SMB is a Windows based protocol whilst AFP is Apple.  Therefore I would personally stick with AFP unless you’re having problems, in which case try SMB.

When adding a share Media Player should automatically detect the best share type for you.

In our tests, we found the performance of each to be very similar.

I have 1 of each - in each case, the software picked the protocol, and the setup is otherwise seamless. Performance is the same for me…
