A friend of mine asked me for a favor. He wants to browse photos on his Sony TV. Photos are located on laptop which is in the same local network. I've set the sharing settings so photo folder is shared but I can't find a way how to get to these photos from TV. I've installed some app called ES something but it didn't discover anything in local network. What would be your choice in that case?
 
You can install PLEX MEDIA SERVER on the computer. Point it to the folder with all the photos.

Install PLEX from the google app store on the Sony TV.

Create a plex account and log into both the computer and tv. Done. You'll be able to browse the photos with the tv's remote like people did with film slides back in the day.
