I have an unused Chromebit that I want to use to play videos stored on my MacBook pro. Here is how to do it.

Setup MacOS FileSharing

Go to System Preferences > Sharing

Make sure to Enable SMB and select a User
Add Folders you want to share

Add network file share on ChromeOS

On your Chrome device go to Chrome Settings > Files

Since Chrome OS 71, Network file share is supported natively (no need extensions)
Add the User you have selected previously

Important :

  • You have to specify a folder
  • Guest is not supported (so far on my version)

Next steps: find a video player that supports MKV subtitles…

Enjoy !
