(file/options/disable header removal compression for audio and video tracks by default) then i've opened the file and pressed start muxing. after few seconds the file was playable via mediaplay using my TV. once again thank You very much

Hi all, I read through all these pages and it doesnt seem like anyone had the same issue I have...

I have a C650 TV, and have no issues at all using the Samsung PC Share App to stream stuff. But because of the annoying non-refresh of the shared files, I've been trying to get it working with just the built in Windows 7 Media Center/Player.

I can see all the files in my Windows 7 Share, access them, and play them. BUT, every .mkv (which is most of my library) plays in the wrong aspect ratio. Its basically taking 720p or 1080p movies and stretching them into 4:3 aspect which of course looks weird. They all play in perfect AR on the windows PC...

Any ideas? thanks

I notice when playing fast video action scenes in some movies [Kickass fight scene in street for example] through DLNA and Mezzmo, I lose the audio [occasionally some video breakup as well]. This appears to be a buffering issue, since pausing the movie cleans it up until the action stabilizes.

I have a DIR 655 router with a DIR 1522 WAP running N wireless - any ideas on solving this? File sizes are generally 6.5-7GB, so I'm demanding roughly 1Mb/sec for a 2 hour movie [if my math is right].

Any idea on what the size of the buffer might be in the BD C5500C? Or is this a transport problem across my wireless network?

Streaming movies over wireless, especially large/high-bitrate files, is always a bad idea. Even if you use wireless N it's not going to prevent buffering issues. Long ago when I used to try and stream (smaller file sizes/bitrate) and I had issues I always had a loooooooooong Cat 5e cable handy to be able to eliminate wireless being the issue...guess what? wireless was almost always the issue.

I'm not sure how far away from the router your BD C5500C is, but you can order a loooooooong Cat 6 cable from monoprice for a few bucks.(not to keep connected but just for testing) It'll save you headache when troubleshooting if you really want to try and stream large movie files over wireless. The problem is wireless can not handle a constant high throughput. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't go by the "advertised" numbers. for streaming you need a CONSTANT high amount of bandwidth available.

I use Mezzmo and stream REALLY high bitrate movies over Cat 6 cable and there is no issue. If I had to put money on it, I'd say its the wireless.

good luck

I would agree about wifi being the problem. I just have everything connected with Cat, plus use EyeconTroller on my Android over wifi, pretty much a breeze.

Thanks for the quick reply. Actually I have a 50ft Cat 5e network cable available [the BD C5500C is around 25ft away from the router] but this is a "wife issue" [visibility]. I was also reluctant to go through the effort of resetting the connectivity...

I'll try it sometime and let you know if this is the issue.

Holy Maccaroni and cheese balls!

I'm trying to get the Set Device Policy to detect my Samsung BD-C6800 on my network. (latest firmware is installed).

For the love of Moses, it just is not showing up under Set Device Policy.

I can ping the player fine from my Win7 64 bit machine and tried with firewall and AV off. This is a wired network (albeit using a powerline network adapter, but everything else works with the player - it can watch Netflix streaming, Pandora, Youtube, everything.)

Just can't get by this PCSM 4.2 Set Device Policy nuttiness. At first I thought, maybe it just doesn't like Abba.

Haven't tried another media streamer yet.

I noticed it's been like 4 months since PCSM has had an update. Hope they release another one soon.

I know not what to do at this point. The software keeps calling me a turkey and I don't know what to do. Anyone?

If you enable media sharing on your Win7 machine I'm guessing that you should be able to see it as a server (I can on my BD-C5500). From there you can at least confirm that it is a PCSM problem.

Not even sure how to do that. I've tried the Libraries thing through Windows Media player but not certain it's even working correctly. also, I had my only domain controller server go out and I'm limping along with cached credentials etc. I have to rebuild everything one of these days.

And, I am old school and still don't understand all the Home network crap with Win7. I've always had a home network connected to a domain for testing, etc. (which is like the Win7 workplace network). Wish they would have left all the networking components alone.

I think I was able to turn on Windows media sharing on this win7 box, but all the documenation I've seen for doing so really seems convoluted to me.

I'll have to wade through it some more I guess.



Update:

I must have done something right because I can now see the server showing up and I can play music from it.

So it seems windows media sharing is working afterall.

Now I need to figure out the PCSM, or are many people just using the Windows Media sharing and leaving it at that?

What are the benefits of each, is that posted anywhere?

It is my understanding that PCSM does not support Windows 7, Vista and Xp yes, but not W7...

I was able to PCSM on Win7 but it was a pain to make work and didn't seem to offer anything above the vanilla media sharing from Win7. If you want a more capable media server I'd look at Mezzmo.

PCSM works on Windows 7 - in fact its the only way thats working perfectly for me right now...

Anyone have any success with streaming from a Cisco E3000 share? I thought the TV could play .mkv natively, but they all say not supported when I load them from the E3000. If I load them from PCSM or just Win Media Share, they play fine?

I use Mezzmo and I'm unsure as to what "device" [Samsung or the file server] controls the look and feel of the output screen. I'm not particularly happy with the folder layout, but I'm particularly disappointed with the lack of information on actors, plot, ratings, etc being provided [none] for the movies I am streaming - and the lack of "sizzle" on the screen when choosing a movie [or song].

Compared to other media streaming devices [Popcorn et al] the presentation onscreen is terrible. Am I asking too much or is there a solution?

The reason I ask is that if this is software related through Mezzmo then I can expect this to be corrected in the future - if Samsung, not likely.

What you see on screen is very much under the control of the renderer (Blu-ray player or TV) and not so much the server. Really all Mezzmo can do is respond to what the renderer requests - there are some things like file structure, thumbnails and titles that Mezzmo can influence but the layout and 'value adds' like movie info is the renderers job.

Thanks for the update folks, interesting though, I had read that W7 was support, one of you said "was a pin" the other "working perfectly"

I am glad to see that PCSM is at least consistant...

Hi,

I am trying to find a container, video/audio codec combination to convert my MOV files so that I can play them on my Panasonic TC-P50G20 plasma TV via Samsung DLNA on my Samsung BD-C6500.

I am new to transcoding. Can anyone offer a suggestion? I will be using MediaCoder to do the conversion. Don't want to degrade video.

For a media server, I anm using a Asus wl-500gP router as a wireless repeater running TomatoUSB firmware with USB harddrive to store media. My main router is a FIOS ActionTec.

Thanks

I typically use MKV with AVC video and AC3 or AAC audio. I use Ripbot - its slow but keeps quality.

posted in the 65cxx thread as well. All my gear is connected via HDMI through my Pioneer receiver w/ monitor out to my Samsung. I am a moron, but how do I stop tv volume from playing when I access Samsung TV internet. For example, try to watch VUDU and I still hear the tv sound. I know there must be an easy connection I have missed but tyhis is driving me nuts! The only work around I have found is: mute the pioneer, turn off external spkrs; turn on internal spkrs then use tv volume. Not ideal> who wants to watch a movie through tv speakers. Hopefully this makes sense

Thxs!!

Do you have your Samsung Menu>Audio set to "Use External Speakers"?

yes, and that seems to be the problem. Since everything is connected HDMI through my pioneer, the pioneer is producing sound from not only the samsung internet tv, but the tv programing as well.

I'm trying to remember all that I did to get mine working right. It was confusing. I got things like on-screen displays of volume (which btw was not correct to see). I can tell you this: Once you do have everything set correctly (in TV and in Pioneer) when you press Volume + or - on the Samsung panel remote you should see the message on the panel stating "Not Available"

Maybe look in the Pioneer setup for something like disable 2nd remote? Also post your question on the Pioneer thread too.

The Intellinet 523974 from Amazon.com and the Rosewill RNX-N1 from Newegg.com and Chiefvalue.com. A member in the C5500 forum confirmed that they work with the C5500.

Also CenDyne JR300N.

Not used myself - all mine are wired.

I went with a DLINK DAP-1522 because it was close to the same price as Samsung's adapter and gave me 3 other ports.

Someone on a BR player thread mentioned software called tvmobili here. I know alot of folks here love their Mezzmo. tvmobili is free. Has anyone tried both and compared the two? Pros? Cons?
