Play Movies on Smart TV

Postby sonypoolplr » Thu Sep 15, 2016 6:20 pm

Not sure if this belongs here or not, but we just purchased a Sony smart tv and I was wondering about playing movies from DVDLOBBY on it. It is showing up in the AV part of MLSERVER as a media player, but I was just looking at the apps available for it and I see Plex and VLC as well. So I am looking for some advice and guidance on trying to get something setup to play my movies.

Thanks for any and all help with this.

If the TV supports DLNA, you should be able to do this using the Mlserver DLNA driver. No app needed on the TV. I haven't played with this quite a while but if I remember, you need to be aware of what file formats the TV supports. For example, some of my movie collection was made up of ISO files. No problem on a Windows HTPC since I could mount the ISO before playing it but the TV can't do this.
