Can't stream DVD content to Samsung Smart TV

    Question

  • Hi,

    I can stream audio content, i.e. music stored on my PC to my TV and view the content of my PC on my new TV via my home network, but I can't sream video content to my TV, i.e. DVD loaded in my DVD player.

    For exemple, when I play a CD, its content is added to the play list and when I click on the PC icon on top of the rignt pane, the content can be sent/pushed to my TV. However,if I load a DVD movie in my DVD player (drive: E) and play/view it, I can't sent/push the content in the playlist to my TV.

    Am I trying to achieve an impossible task?

    Note that I am using Win7(64) and Media Player 12.

  • You would most likely have to RIP the DVD to an mp4 and store on the computer
    hard drive in order to stream it to the TV. You can't use Play To with DVD
    movies by design.
