Thanks for your post, But all the links are blank?
I have succesfully set up my computer and Samsung B650 tv to stream videos perfectly over my network with full control of videos EXACTLY as it were through a USB. Full controls are present including pause, fast forward, rewind, skipping, resume and thumbnails. I have for a long time been trying different solutions to no avail but finally this is perfect.
The solution is from "SamyGO", a group of people committed to getting the most out of samsung TVs and found it via Tversity forums.
Essentially u install a new "game" onto the tv (SamyGO All Extensions). You can either run it from a usb or copy to the tv. All that needs to be done is run the game, then a "samba server" appears in the source list as a usb device. This lists all the shared folders in the network and then away you go.
How to do it: (full credit goes to initial posters)
1st - How to correctly download and install SamyGoExtensions
2nd - Edit the Samba init file for your system
Going through the forums can get confusing so ill just summarise quickly:
[*]Download SamyGO All Extensions v0.03.1.zip
[*] Extract directly to a USB such that the SamyGO and src folders are directly in the root folder, along with the readme and other files
[*] In order for this method to work, there must be a windows user account with a password which has access to folders that you are sharing. Sharing is done by just right clicking the folder and enabling its sharing. This method will not work if you use a account without a password. What I did was just create a new account called "Samba" purely for this purpose and then edit the registry so it does not come up in the startup logon screen. This way my computer just loads straight into my default administrator account and still behaves like there is only one account.
[*] Open 04_04_samba.init in SamyGo/etc/init.d folder using notepad++ not windows notepad as it will not work
[*] Add the username and password the windows account that has access to the folders you are sharing. Technically nothing else need to be changed for this to work, but I just added my compters IP to make things faster when actually starting it up. Remember to use notepad++
[*] Not reccomended by SamyGo admins, but people do do it to make startup faster - replace the SamyGOE.so file with the one from V0.02 as it reduces load up time. I have done it myself, but its not recomneded to mix and match files.
[*] Plug USB in to tv, go to the second option that appears, content management, go to usb, go to game, then SamyGoAllExtensions will be there. You can run this through this method from here, or copy to the tv and run it subsequently through the conent button. I hate that button becuase it is super slow, so i just have a small usb i leave in the tv at all times and run it from there off the usb. If running off the usb, you cannot remove it.
[*] When you run it, "pretty colours" according to the original poster will be seen. These are not tv generated, its the applications just displaying it. Then messages of two new devices being connected will be displayed; "UpNp server" and "Samba server".
[*] Exit all this and go to the source menu, Samba server, videos, select the ip adress that has shares, and there they are. Everything can be had with full control
[*] Once this procedure is done, subsequently when you want to stream, just need to launch the "game" SamyGoAllExtensions, either directly from USB or from copied to TV Memory. Colours will appear, Devices will be found. You will select Samba server from source list and great fun will be had by all. Takes 30 seconds max. Just remember that if you are doing it straight after turning the tv on, give it a minute or so, so that it can detect the network, especially for wireless connections (as mine )
So there we have it. Samsung TVs doing what we always wanted them to do. Absolutely awesome. The guys over at SamyGo are absolutely brilliant and I definately think they need acknowledgement from Samsung. This is what samsung should have done in the first place.
