    • Check your TV manual, there is a section specific to the supported format.

      My TV is Samsung UE40C6510 (40” Full HD LED TV) and it’s natively support MKV file.
      Also, remember to check if there is an updated Firmware version which could update video codec onboard in the TV.

      Hope this help!

  5. That is no true at all. I have many videos in DX50 (divx 5) that are read but half of them with exact same 4CC (DX50) are just not supported.
    I have the most recent firmware update (2012 – January) on model un46D6050TF. My PC read all of them properly.
    Don’t buy Sansung if you want good DLNA support.

    • Yes! You need to install a DLNA application on your smartphone to be able to see the film on your mobile.

  7. I had the error “video codec not supported” using allshare, but once I used Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 (free version) it fixed this issue. So, what some files are missing is the correct encoding! I was able to do this to .wmv, avi and mov files. Either seperately or making a windows live movie maker file and encoding that final result. Why no one has this info posted anywhere I looked (and I looked high and low) I have no idea, but yeah theres the fix..
