Samsung Smart TV's - What codecs are supported? Trying to open Widi DLNA desktop stream on tv

post #1 of 3

For those of you not familiar, intel has its own WIDI (wireless display) technology where you can stream your desktop with full quality and low latency.
Unfortunately you needed an external Widi compatible adapter or TV, which I believe the Samsung 8000 series have support for.

I looked into widi technology since I do not keep wanting to use an HDMI cable to connect my laptop.

I found out that with their new software update, WIDI can now stream regular DLNA devices but with the fact that it takes a hit with reduced quality, 720p, and higher latency.

I got it setup and unfortunately my samsung tv is stubborn and doesn't want to accept the input. (es7000) i believe.
Yet on youtube I saw another person using a samsung TV with intels DLNA WIDI stream.

I managed to open the DLNA stream on my computer to evaulate the codec and am trying to pinpoin the problem. Is this codec not supported, or is the problem somewhere else in my setup?



Here is the codec info:

Stream 0
Type: Audio
Original ID: 4352
Codec: MPEG AAC Audio (mp4a)
Channels: Stereo
Sample rate: 48000 Hz

Stream 1
Type: Video

Resolution: 1280 x 720
Frame rate: 60
Decoded format: Planar 4:2:0 YUV

To use intels widi... The tv must have: Widi built-in or a widi reciever box connected to the tv with hdmi cable.

Next your computer needs a Intel cpu, Intel gpu.

This video from youtube will explain:
