Play locally stored music on your Fire TV Stick

You can use VLC for Fire or Kodi to play any music you have stored and accessible on your home network. For this to work, you will obviously need your audio to be accessible through your network on a shared folder. The rest is easy.

Either way, the machine that has the music on it needs to be turned on and accessible on your network for the Fire TV to be able to see it and access the music on it.

If you want to use VLC:

  1. Install VLC media player and open it.
  2. Select Media and Open Folder.
  3. Navigate to your music folder from within the app and Select Folder.
  4. The contents of that folder should appear within VLC for Fire and be playable as long as they are in a supported audio format.

Using Kodi to play music on the Fire TV Stick:

  1. If you have Kodi installed on your Fire TV Stick, open the app.
  2. Select Music and then navigate to the shared folder containing your media.
  3. Select a track or album from the folder to play.

Free trial version allows you to convert 3 minutes of each song, to get the full version, please purchase a license.
