So after searching for hours on how to get my ES7100 Samsung Smart TV to accept streamed 1080p .x264 files I came up with nothing. Quite upset by this I decided to go back to streaming them using my PS3 and the Free Sony PS3 media server app. Well all and behold the app running on my PC recognized my Samsung ES7100 as a media Renderer. After lunching the App my TV was able to use the PS3 media server app as a accessible source. The app transcoded all my .x264 files into .Mp4 and now flawlessly stream onto my ES7100. I have not witnessed any video or sound degradation.

Any of the good DLNA servers like Serviio, Mezzmo, TVMobili, Plex will stream mkv files to Samsung (even Samsungs own awful Allshare DLNA server).

PS3 Media server is not a great option and is generally outclassed by any of those others servers.
