DLNA on my Samsung TV

Posted in General at 10:27 pm by jw

I was pretty excited to try out the DLNA on my new Samsung TV, but ended up disappointed to find that it only seemed to work with the Samsung applet on my PC, which severely lacked some fairly critical features (like transcoding).  Today, I was happy to find the magic hacks for TVersity which let it work like a charm with the somewhat esoteric nature of the DLNA support built in:

According to this thread, edit the profiles pharmacymg.com.xml in the TVersity folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\TVersity\Media Server on my machine) and add the following before the last </profileList> entry:

Samsung Profile for TVersity

Worked like a charm for me – now I can get rid of all the other DLNA apps on my PC and just use this single server.

    I still get the error ‘ Not Supported File Format’ with my samsung UN46C7000 LED 3D TV even after trying with that profile xml update. Could any body help me to resolve this issue?

    I ended up giving up on my TV as a DLNA client since I got a PS3. :/

    To avoid the ‘Not Supported File Format Error’ error, there is a solution at the thread listed above, page 11. Add this line:

    where the IP address value will be the assigned to your TV set (eg. 192.168.x.x, change ‘x’ to your real numbers)


    <!-- SamsungTV -->
    <friendlyname>Samsung TV
    <devicesip value="x.x.x.x"/>

    Hope this helps like in my LE32C650

    Thanks so much. That’s so awesome. I had been struggling with getting my HT-D5550W Blu Ray home theature system to work with Tversity. It works with this added to profile.xml. Can I ask though, is there anyway to support fast forwarding and rewind?

    No clue on how to get fast forwarding/rewind working properly. My TV has been pretty flaky with those when I try to use it.

    I use Twonky for DNLA for my Samsung.

    I had the same problem with Vuze so I tried the alternatives. Twonky works perfectly with my Samsung series 7 LCD LED TV without any fluffing around.

    Plays all movies including MKV files. I can even choose what audio language track within the MKV to play with the TV remote. Have full control of fast forwards, rewind, play and stop through the TV remote.

    Only minor problem is that is does not see the subtitles .srt file.

    I have just applied the suggestions of Rafaelg above.
    Now my UE55D8000 works, but no FF/FR
