Stream PC video to My TV

Hello,

I'm trying to stream videos from my PC to my Samsung TV and I can't seem to make it work.

TV: SAMSUNG UHD TV series 7 (Model UE55NU7440)

I tried the NDLA method. I enabled a shared file from my PC (windows 10) via my local network. I can see my TV in the network via the Media streams option from windows 10.

I can ping my TV from my computer. But it doesn't appear on the "source" window from my TV. I tried the SMARTVIEW app, and my TV isn't find. 

I must be overlooking something. Could someone help me find a way working with this TV model ?

Thanks.

Hey @Jean7481 ,

 

let's have a look into this together. Can you confirm if both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi when you try to connect them using Smart View? What software version is the TV currently running on? You can check this from the TV Settings> Support> About this TV/Contact Samsung.

I stream from my pc to my LG tv using a similar methodology. However, make my connection using ethernet cable, using my Virgin Superhub as the throughput. On the tv remote, I hit the HOME button to bring up the options on the screen. I then find my connection to the pc from there.

You need a media player on your PC so you can choose a file to stream to the TV. You should then be able to use the TV to select what to play. All TVs in my network can remotely access the PC.
I use Windows Media player. It's no longer supported by MS, the last version was 12.

I have Windows Media player and it should be configured to stream. If my TV can select it, I don't know where I have to go. Nothing appears on "source"

Is WMP turned on? Updates always seem to turn it off. In the menu you need to allow streaming and input the file to share. How is the PC connected to the TV‽ WiFi? You should see a media server icon in source so I think there's some file sharing or network issue. Try to allow the whole drive to be shared.
