NO OS Stated, W10? or ?
ive no idea all your system topology, what networks.
sure sub net but what is it , consisting of what.??? vast choices.

we use wired Gigalan here 1000 bits/sec. wired. every inch.
all connected with GIGALAN high speed switches,
with wifi , all you are doing is doomed to failure (1 day ok day2, not)
i can list the top 100 reasons way, but will not.
ill do a few..., , collisions with neighborhood, or noise.
Channels are shared, and this is bad, in the concrete jungles.

WIFI is RADIO, and will fail with noise, near by. RFI its called.
google that. or wiki it. wifi is ok for chat ,email and whatsap.
iffy on, skype...
If WIFI is your mandate (bad) then move it to channel 10.
i use wifi radar app and move to where the other guys are not.!!!+

if wired tell me are you using reserved IP in DHCP of this unstated router. do so now.
make sure the media server is on a reserved IP .
then setup shares.

what are you serving
video or both.
can you see the files using the" my computer icon" , called
windows Explorer?
"this PC" in 10 now.
just because you can ping it tells you only that the ping requests are honored there, and nothing else.,
it must have the shares all set correctly.

next time tell the help the lay out of your system
even post a system diagram.
be amazing but , rare here.

If your camera isn't working, or if you see a message that says "No camera found": Turn off your Chromebook, then turn it back on. Try using the camera in another app, like Hangouts. If it works in that app, uninstall the app where it doesn't work, then reinstall it.

    the 620 is old and we know them well here.
    PC's trip off for 20 reasons, that is a fact.
    and you will not guess 20 times right>?

    so we test the PC to find cause. true.
    or get a repair show to fix it like 99% do.
    are you handy with tools, and willing to buy parts or a meter?

    IDK why you ask this, ? not told.
    just want 20 guesses here? that?

    HP 620 NOTEBOOK right? ?????
    clear as day over 10 years old
    2010 made most are.
    hp has no service guide like dell have.
    Dell is best.! (do not buy HP)

    age is first , with any savvy tech, we see age first, age tells a tech what might be wrong. easy. (and sets the path of actions)
    the cause is 2 fold, (tech) power overload or overheating.

    1: the big huge battery is removed first.
    run on AC power pack only not that bad and now shorted out huge bad boy battery
    even run like this FOREVER if that is you bag.
    2: next the RTC coin cell battery is now dead
    a $1 part, and when dead no PC can boot.
    and BIOS goes NUTS, and random.

    3: YouTube covers dismantle to RTC coin watch it.
    4: overheating we run apps on any PC
    to see if CPU is not too hot,
    if yes we clean the PC out fully of all lint
    or it will always overheat.https://pcdied.com/overheated.html

    5: overloading power, this is where the 20+ count comes in to play, 20 things inside any PC on average can in fact short out
    and the power regulators inside see that and shut down and the PC goes dead.
    we do the strip down test to find that.

    I bet you are not game for all that.
    most are not, that is why PC shops excel.

    you have 3 choices besides trade up.
    1: get the shop to fix it.
    2: gue$$.
    3: or test.

    your call.

    if PC stays on, bad HDD is next fail.
    like clock work , normal failures are known.
    batteries first then HDD.
    or simply packed full of lint alike all are 10 years old, no kidding, packed.

    trips off means
    1:fans dead
    2: screen dead
    3: all LED dead.
    4: silent, right?
    and holding power button for 10 seconds and released at end fails.
    5: and fails with big battery dropped out fully.
    there is start, we can do this 20 steps at a time. until TRUE cause is found.
    RTC coin replaced is next.
    seen as coin cell socket holder (nice)
    just the opposite side from DDR ram bank.

    seen here. see silver coin? left side.?
