I'm a bit new here, but not new to using samsung devices.
I've always loved the ease of use of having a video/picture file i wish to stream using the my local network using the play content feature instead of mirroring screen. The quality is often better and I can utilise the smart TV or console remote for playback.
I'm having the problem now that when i'm trying to stream to my TV it's no longer giving the option to "play content" only mirror screen, which is reallllly annoying. I've had this issue before that managed to fix itself somehow, but since my phone updated on monday the option is gone, and despite my best efforts i can't seem to find the option again.
Any one able to help. I don't think i should have to download 3rd party apps to do this if the phone should really be capable on it's own. Again i want the Play Content feature, not screen mirror.
Any help would be appreciated.
see photo...it use to show up there. but now even though the TV's on and visible on the network it doesn't find it. when I go to mirror screen option on the LG TV it doesn't show up there either, but will when I go to play a video and select the smart view, but still only getting the option to mirror screen.
I don't use this function often. I'm experiencing the same as you. I used to be able to stream to Samsung and non Samsung TVs. Smart View app which is no longer supported may allow streaming to your Samsung TV. You can download it from apkmirror which is a safe site to use.
That's the best suggestion I have, sorry.
thanks I've tried but no luck. ☹. this is deeply annoying...to the point where I want to get rid of every Samsung device I own. Anyone else figured a fix? or a reason for the removal of this feature.
