Default HELP! w/ media server through PC

I'm trying to setup my TV to play videos from my computer via wifi.
My TV does not see media server that I setup through PC. I tried plexapp(recommended by LG), mezzmo, and serviio.

My network is setup through a wireless router. I have the LG Infinia 42LV5500 TV and my netflix streaming service through wifi works fine.

Anyone know how I can fix this problem with my PC and TV?

My guess would be that it could be the wireless is connecting to the internet but not the home network. The TV is probably set up for WORKGROUP and maybe your network is MSHOME or something else. Also assuming that's not it, the folders on the PC will need to be shared and if you are running windows 7 that can be tricky. Your TV manual should have instructions on how to set up your PC.
