How Do I use the All Share Program on the Samsung UA60C6900

by ergjam / July 3, 2011 3:15 PM PDT

I am trying to use the Samsung Built-In Media Player on my UA60C6900 LED TV using the Samsung All Share Program.
I have the TV connected to my Computer Network using the LAN Cable, but this just plays using the network media player, and I am unable to get the same functions (F/F, R/W, Pause, Return to same position, Pause forward/rewind, etc...), plus I cannot play MKV Files.
If I plug my Hard drive directly into the TV, everything works fine, but then I have to unplug it to transfer any files from my laptop. This especially annoying because I am confined to a wheelchair, having to get up and down everytime I want to watch something I just downloaded.

Sounds proper.

"F/F, R/W, Pause, Return to same position, Pause forward/rewind, etc...), plus I cannot play MKV Files."

This is well discussed as well as MKV files not being an ENCODING but a "container."

While all this has been discussed at length I find many are upset about having to re-encode or that FF, RW and such still do not function after the new encodings that the TV supports.

---> AGAIN, please do not write MKV is supported. We know that. But what is INSIDE the MKV must be supported and play as well.

After some thousands of posts on this my advice is if you want the playback you get on a PC that you should connect the PC to this TV.

I do not mind re-encoding MKV files, but I am still unable to get even AVI files to play properly without plugging the hard drive directly into the TV using the USB Port. Again this is problemactic being in a wheelchair.
If I plug the TV into the computer using a HDMI, VGA, or USB Cables the computer uses the TV as a monitor, and I cannot access the Media Player built into the TV, and the LAN only gives me limited functions (play, stop) using the Network.

AVI ... is a container and not an encoding.

Sorry but with some thousands of posts about this I'll keep it short. AVI is another container and not an encoding. Again, what is inside the AVI must be supported by the TV and let's just sum it all up with.

It's a TV, not a PC.
