Streaming live video (aka youtube) from computer over nw

by manyapradhan / December 1, 2008 10:37 AM PST

I just bought the ln46a750, Iits on my home network and I also setup the ability to play movies from my hard disk.
I also have samsung blue ray player.

1. Can I route this thru the blue ray player so as to get the benefit of up-conversion of the DVD content

2. Is there any software available to stream content from say Youtube or ESPN on to the TV

3. Is there any future firmware upgrade on the cards for the tv to use he networ connection to get live video along with the news, weather stock etc.?

Thank you !!!

1. Can you route movies through the Blu-Ray player? No, not that I know of.

2. Bob posted a link that many people have taken advantage of. I'd definitely look into Tversity.

3. No, there is no firmware planned for the InfoLink feature to support videos.

YouTube on Samsunh MediaLive Extender

Will Samsung be offering a firmware update to the extender, then, to provide codec support for flash video (to be able to view YouTube)?

I will try the tversity solution for sure. So, it has been used by other people and is compatible with Samsung Series 7 LCDs. Right?

One good thing about these TVS I thought was ... With the ability upgrade firmware later on, features could be added without constantly having to upgrade the tv itself ... Is that not true?

Will let you know how tversity works for me, I downloaded and installed it last night, havent worked on setting all up yet...

Thanks for the help!

I don't know of any plans to do that, but I have sent the suggestion up as a request. If I hear something, I will post it here.

Tversity and Samsung 750
by manyapradhan / December 3, 2008 6:41 AM PST


Last night I tried it out, the tversity server showed up fine and the folders shared also showed up. But when playing youtube or DVD content ... it gave error as "Unrecognized file type" ...

BTW, earlier I was able to play DVD content using the Samsung PC Share 1.4 version

Will see what tweaks can be done for tversity... any hints would be welcome.

Thank you !!

TVersity v 1.0 RC5 does not work with Samsung 7 series
by manyapradhan / December 9, 2008 10:16 PM PST


Look at this post ...

This issue is not resolved ... I have tried several suggested ways but it does not work. So before you suggest it does, please test yourself.

Looks like have to wait for another release from tversity to check it again.

BTW Twonky as well as PC Share worked fine ...only they dont have capability for online streaming ...

DLNA is 7 Series and higher...

Unfortunately the DLNA functionality is for the 7-Series and higher.

I with there was a way to do it, but for what it's worth, do you have some InfoLink capabilities with the thumbdrive. I know that's not the solution you were looking for, but it's a suggestion.

I thought the thumbdrive only does pics and mp3, so what your saying is that it can play videos

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?
