Lets face it , for those who have used Samsungs Allshare software, it's not fantastic software! it sounds like it should be, but for those who have used it, I'm sure you'll all agree, it's not!! it's Buggy! It crashes and freezes if you do anything. When I mean anything, I mean if you treat it like any other software and add or remove files it just doesn't seem to respond in the same way. In essence I've discovered that playing files on the PC via allshare onto your SMART TV is not as easy as it looks!!!! but I believe I've now mastered it........................to a degree!!!! Start Allshare on the PC First create a folder on the PC with Explorer and put your vids into it. Start Allshare! You'll find all the default folders are blank! Then add the folder you just created via My computers shared folder option in Allshare on the top left side. Allshare then updates itself scanning the folder. Run Allshare on the PC, do the same on the TV. Using the TV Allshare menu, select your video and all being well....watch it! However, you may have noticed that when you add an extra video etc to the folder or delete some,(Allshare often freezes when I did this) the contents are not updated in Allshare! any new files simply don't appear on the TV menu. They can't be found by Allshare because there's no refresh option! My solution is, having added new vids, right click on the folder in the PCs Allshare (top left )and select stop sharing shared folder. Allshare updates and shows the folder is removed. Now go back to Allshares My computers shared folder (top left)and re-add the folder again (with the updated vids) and Allshare then reloads the folder along with any updated vids etc. Keep Your folders small as updating allshare takes forever if you've got loads of videos in the folder. It's better to have lots of folders with a small number of vids in each one. Playing Videos etc on the TV I've also discovered that when you start Allshare on the TV when you select the options of Videos, photos, and music on the left side of the screen. Only folders with the chosen option will have anything in them. i.e if you have a folder with ALL three file types: mkv, jpegs, mp3 then selecting VIDEO will only show the videos within the folder NOT the photos etc. To see the photos in that folder you need to select the PHOTO option on the left side and then navigate to your folder and ONLY the photos will show, not the videos. I thought ALL files would be visible..... but NO the options on the LEFT are FILTERS. Hope this helps someone and hopefully this helps finding your new files. .
