Samsung Smart TV no longer streaming Justin, veetle

by tvbonnici / October 31, 2012 6:43 AM PDT

Hi,

From about three weeks ago my Samsung ES5500 TV is no longer streaming content from sites like Justin.TV and veetle.com.

Before these sites would open in the TV's browser and work find. Now the pages load but the streamed content never comes into being.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem and have you found a solution?

Thank you for the link.

Fact is that this used to work 3 weeks ago! I appreciate that this is no PC but neither is an iPhone or Android phone and these work no problem. I expect Samsung to be able to deliver similar functionality to merit calling their browser a browser.

As the web site changes.

And since it's not a Samsung site, how could we expect this maker to control the performance?

But what's interesting is that you may want to try browsers on the iPad, Android things and you will likely tell us you think those should not be called browsers as well.

-> It's like a car. Not all can do as much as the next car. Here we have browsers all over the map and it's up to the web site to decide if they want an audience on these devices.

Samsung problems and short comings.

Every manufacturer has the right to decide what their browser should handle but that is why we have forums and social media to let others get the real picture of what a generic word such as browser can and can't do. Besides I think that Samsung should be made aware of this development.

I am less tempted to agree with you since all of a sudden two web sites that previously used to work have stopped. I point my finger at one of the browser updates that has taken place.

So did you report this to the web master?

If the web site master doesn't know it broke on Samsung TVs they won't know to test for and fix it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
