Also, Samsung uses the Windows Media Player to control what is seen in the folders on the TV. If you open Windows Media Player on your computer you can add folders there to any library you want. Keep in mind that if you delete a file on the computer it does not nescessarily delete the reference in the folder on the TV. You have to also delete the reference to it in Media Player to get it to disappear from the TV folder. This works for me on Windows 7 and 8.
I am now able to acces the files over the local network from the TV. Although it is not detecting the MKV files. But WMV files are visible and working fine. Please let me know if it can be played. Thank you
Note: Same MKV files are working playing while accesing via External HDD or pen drive.
So this originally worked for me.. My issue though was that my Videos folder's default location did not have much storage space. I changed the location by right clicking the Videos folder, and going to Location and changing the location where the files in the Videos folder are stored. (I changed it to D:\Movies) Once I did this, on the TV, when I go Videos -> Folder -> where once there was the additional folder called Videos, it now says No Content Found. What do I need to do to rectify this problem? Thanks
That question is so irrelevant to the issue presented...
It's like I'm telling you I cannot connect to the internet and you are asking how much memory does my computer have.
Anyway, the video files are either .mkv / .mp4, and the files are not on an external HDD or on a flash USB, they are inside the computer (local hard disk) the sharing of Windows Folders is done via LAN and Wi-Fi (Wireless).
