Setup a network location on Windows 10 from the webdav drive. However when trying to stream media from my server to VLC I get this: VLC is unable to open the MRL
It works fine for text files, just cannot stream for some reason. The server works fine, can stream via FTP.
I have tried using Nextcloud desktop app but I had to force sync it as it doesn’t seem to auto sync like Dropbox. I also don’t want the files locally.

Aunt G. knows different solutions for your problem:
Already tried a lot of that, no success.
I also have this issue.
I have Nextcloud 16 and windows 10 64 bit.
I have Netdrive Webdav client and that works fine when streaming and accessing files. When I try the native windows explorer webdav client (map network drive), streaming fails.
VLC is unable to access the MRL.
I’ve tried setting vlc debug on via Tools > Messages but the MRL error keeps scrolling and I can’t cancel it so the debug log is not saved and I cant get more info on the error.
It does sync automatically…
Could have something to do with VLC or the way Win10 handles WebDAV. I stream videos on mine with Kodi using its native WebDAV client.
Webdav Streaming definitely works very well via Kodi. So it must be an issue with VLC - never got that to work, but streaming from NC via Kodi works reliably on Linux as well as Android) rather than NC.
My Kodi is running on a Windows 7 laptop we leave connected to the TV. Streams from NC WebDAV like a champ.
