There is some confusion about Smart TVs. It's better than what we had a few years ago but I continue to see folk compare them to MP3 player and PCs. So at the risk of upsetting you I didn't see a playlist mentioned in any product manual or feature.
I think some players such as an Apple TV does have this.
I have 2 Samsung "smart TV"s... one is a UA50ES6200.
I utilise my Synology NAS as a DLNA server - which plays media relatively fine (there are other issues, but I wont go into them now)
I cannot find how to create a playlist for these things! No standard playlist formats seem to be supported, the Samsung site is useless with anything other than sales info and the support email and chat links don't work.
After a bit of googling - I found this site... there appears to be no official Samsung forums... which is pretty bad. The products seem to be effectively unsupported.
I have seen people in this and other forums recommend servio... but its never been clear if it is being recommended because it can create playlists in a compatible format (and the synology DLNA server cant?) or what that format is.
So - can anyone give some actual detail on what format these TV's require playlists to be in ?
