I want to connect my Samsung TV to my home wifi. Also i would like to view photos and videos saved on my device (Galaxy S6), on my TV screen. I dont think it's a smart TV. Is there any way I could do this?
Thank you.

Please give the full model number and a link to the user manual. What does that manual say about WiFi? And what does it say about viewing external content, like USB, external disk or home network? Please refer to the right pages of the manual.

why not put some in a flashdrive and plug it in the usb port and find out if it will or not. For video, if tv is not smart, then a computer or a media player would be require. For vcr or dvd, there is a connection for that.
