But keep in mind that not one server will correct or fix incompatible content in all cases. DLNA is a LCD (lowest common denominator) software solution. So if you really want a great experience I suggest the Apple TV.
I'm looking for the right DLNA software to run on my old MacBook in order to share out media to my Samsung Smart TV, making my photos and local movies accessible via the Smart TV interface.
The TV is hardwired over Ethernet to the Airport Extreme. The Macbook is connected over wireless. It's an older laptop running OSX 10.5.8, which I believe is the last OS it will accept.
I'd like to share out my Mac to the Samsung and then use Samsung's Smart TV UI to browse the Mac and pull video and photos, NOT play out from the Mac and push to the TV. But I'm willing to try either.
So far, I've tried EyeConnect, which doesn't see the TV from the Mac and doesn't make the Mac visible from the TV either. I've also tried Twonky, which just produces a bunch of pop-up error messages.
Before I download and try Vuze, what IS the right software for this particular combination?
