Resolved Question

My Samsung 3D TV cant play FLV files.

When will Samsung bring out a firmwear upgrade? TV to PC connectivity is common. You Tube files are in this format. It would be good not to have to convert every file just to play on the TV. I love Samsung. I have 2 TVs, Galaxy phone, Galaxy tab, camera and 2 ps screens...just need to close this gap to be perfect Happy

This is going to get worse not better as Adobe ends Flash.

You can see the end is near. No need for me to tell you.

Hi TheMinshallFamily,

What's the model of TV?

UA55C8000 LED 3D

Also, it is not just You Tube, I agree there is an app for that, it is also the TV download files?

Hi TheMinshallFamily,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for Australia. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung Australia portal for support on that product:

However, I went through the product manual out of curiosity, and indeed it doesn't support FLVs. I can tell you that this year's models play FLVs in the US. I don't know if this functionality will get passed backwards to previous models.

Re: previous models

Now Apple wants us to buy a new iPhone every 2 years or so ($600 at least). And Samsung wouldn't mind at all if people bought a new Samsung phone every 2 years also.

But seeing a TV as a 'outdated after 2 years' is something I yet have to get accustomed to.
