I'm looking for some help. What I want to be able to do is access and play video content (whether it's DVD's that I've stored, or Windows Media files) that is stored on a NAS drive on my Samsung smart TV that is in another room. The TV is connected on our wireless network...and the NAS drive is also connected on the wireless network. The video files are not stored directly on the PC hard drive...I'm trying to use the NAS drive so everyone/device can access the same content. This seems like it should be easy...but I'm not figuring it out.
I tried chatting with Samsung support and they suggested I needed to install their Allplay software on my computer....which I did, but haven't really had success with that either. At one point I thought I was close, but then no luck. Further, it seemed like the Allplay software would only allow access to files that were on the C: drive (so it wouldn't allow me to get stuff off my NAS drive).
I'm sure you are all smarter than me...can you help? The TV is Samsung UN55ES6580FXZA. My computer is Windows 7 based...and my NAS drive is a Buffalo unit.
