Samsung LED 7000 Series and Codecs
Thank you for the reply. OK, let us take them one at a time.
As far as Netflix is concerned, I use a Samsung 1590 Blu Ray player to stream the movies to the Samsung UN55B7100 TV. Some movies play fine (video and audio), but with many I would get the error that the file format is not suported. Now, I would presume that all movies streamed from Netflix have the same file format, but I am not an expert. So my question is why is this happening, and what could I do to reslove it?
As for the DLNA issue, I use the PC Share software that came with the TV to stream media from the PC to the TV. Again, most media files play fine, but in this case a lot of movies would either give the error that the file format is not supported, or that the codec is not available (especially audio codecs). All of these media files would play fine directly on the PC, so the codecs are installed on the PC and functioning. I have also downloaded and installed all possible codecs that I could find. Since everything works fine on the PC itself, I am guessing that the codecs on the PC have nothing to do with playing the media thru PC Share to the TV. Perhaps the TV has to have the codecs installed locally. Is that true? I would appreciate it if you explain it a little bit, and let me know if there is a solution. Or point me in the right direction.
Thank you very much.
