Samsung TV - playing files over wifi
by Rubinsteindvorak - 1/17/13 2:09 PM
I bought a UE40D6500 3d Samsung television about a year ago and I just spent $450 on a NAS server and a good router so that I could play my blu-ray files over the internet instead of having to unplug my hard drive and then plug it back again, which is very annoying especially when you don't have anything better than a USB 2.0 port that takes forever to load.
So I tried to stream MKV files but, of course, he did not work. I had heard from a friend that you could change the extension of the file to .avi and that would be enough to make it work. The problem is that when I do that the file just disappears. I tried to turn off the tv and turned it back on again but did not work. I changed the extension back to .mkv and the file came back after a quick check.
Does anybody know what to do? I feel very frustrated as I have spent a lot of money on this (I'm a film major).
Thanks a lot for your time!
