Even if the TV can access a network share, the video encoding must be compatible with the TV. I find most consumers blow up on the launch pad over this issue.
Again, what plays on your PC rarely plays on a BD/TV player. The BD player or TV does document what encoding is required but you continue to read posts where the member writes "MKV which is supported won't play." Then we get into what a MKV is then turn again to encoding.
