I raised this problem at
and was recommended that it should be raised here too. Thread below: the recommendations from Microsoft were ineffective.
I have a problem streaming video from Windows Media Player 12 to my Samsung TV.
The TV identifies the media server and finds all videos to play. Selecting a video from a video folder will commence play and works well for only 10 to 13 minutes. After that time the TV will stop playing that video, connect to the next file in the directory and start playing it for ~13 minutes.
To watch a complete video requires restarting the video, fast forwarding to the point it stopped and watching for another thirteen minutes.
I have tried manipulating the TV during playback to ensure nothing there was sleeping or timing out.
I have set the PC to stay powered up with no sleep or Hibernation, and I have tried using the PC during playback on the TV.
The problem does not happen with media player on the local PC Display.

Wednesday, August 01, 2012 10:11 PMHi I have been having the same problem with the Samsung smart tv, it is only with Windows 8, Windows 7 streaming works fine. I have just purchased a Toshiba smart tv and I now have the same problem with that, the video stops at 13 minutes, both samsung support and Toshiba have told me that because Windows 8 is not on general release that they do not guarantee compatibility, however they are aware of the issue and are looking into it for future updates when Windows 8 is on general release. Unless anyone has any better options I would advise sticking with Windows 7 if streaming video.
