Mac Streaming on Blu-Ray Players: HOW-TO

by Samsung_HD_Tech Samsung staff - 12/4/09 5:22 PM

Forum Members,

Since our Blu-Ray player lineup doesn't officially support the Mac platform, I'm usually not able to help with support issues that arise. However, one of our forum members, tigger000005 has found a solution.

This really is what the forum is about - helping each other out, so thanks for the tips and I hope this can help some of our forum users.

Here ...step by step...verified by others (on another forum)
..Admin/Samsung tech...maybe make this a sticky ??

For those having problems getting the Player to see shared files from your Macintosh wirelessly, this works.....

(Note: Updated 1/04/09)

Here you are...tiger and leopard instructions...I also posted on my site ( with links to snapshots for those that are (like me) visual... (If you visit the site with internet probably won't look good/work properly....)

Unless indicated, steps are the same for ALL Mac OS'es starting from 10.4 (Tiger).

Equipment used to test....
Samsung BD-P3600, S/W: BEv2.05_091015_XAC, Loader: LDv1.12_090924__, Region: A/1 (BD/DVD)
iMac PPC 2 Ghz, OS 10.5.8
iMac PPC 500 Mhz OS 10.4.11
D-Link DIR615, Wireless Security set to "WPA-Personal", Mode: Auto (WPA or WPA2), Cypher Type: TKIP and AES

Macintosh Part-----
1- In System Preferences>>Network>>YOUR ACTIVE CONNECTION>>Advanced>>Appletalk, place a check on "Make Appletalk Active", click "OK" then "Apply".
2- Make sure your network settings are correct...simplest way is after setting them..test...then test if your mac is seen....if all is ok, just to be sure shut down the samsung.
3- On the Mac, open System Preferences >> Sharing.
4- Place a check on "Filesharing" from the list on the left.
***Leopard (10.5.x -May also work with Snow Leopard -10.6.x)
Add "Shared Folders" to the Shared folders list *** I have multiple HD's, so I just added the HD(s) I wanted to the list.

***Tiger (10.4.x)
Place a check on "Windows Sharing" AND "Remote Login".

***Leopard (10.5.x -May also work with Snow Leopard -10.6.x)
Click on "Options" under the Users list and SELECT "Share files and folders using AFP" and "Share files and folders using SMB" and PUT A CHECK on "on" next to your account.

***Tiger (10.4.x)
Make sure "Windows Sharing" is highlighted and click the "Accounts" button. Place a "Check" on your account, then click "Done".

You can close all open windows on the Macintosh.

Samsung Part------
7- Turn on the Samsung AND WAIT a few seconds (so that a wireless connection is established).
8- Press the left arrow until you see the RED A at the bottom of the screen to Perform a Network Search.
9- Press the RED A on your remote and then select MANUAL.
10- Enter the i.p. of the Mac, then press the BLUE button on the remote.
***Leopard (10.5.x -May also work with Snow Leopard -10.6.x)
Enter the name of the shared folder (EXAMPLE: One of my HD's is named 500 Gig (1) so this is what I put EXACTLY as is..spaces, caps etc), then press the BLUE button on the remote.

***Tiger (10.4.x)
Enter the short name of the currently active Macintosh account HOME FOLDER exactly as shown.
IF you are unsure of its name, go to YOUR MAIN HARD DRIVE >> USERS and look at the name of the folder that looks like a house.

12- Enter your user name used on the Mac...if you are not 100% sure on how it's typed, open system preferences>>accounts and find it there, and press the BLUE button on the remote.
13- Enter your Macs account password exactly as you would on your mac, then press the BLUE button on the remote.
