Can't open any media on Samsung UE32ES5500

  • kocur

    Hey All,

    I've just installed MiniDLNA on ubuntu however I have issues to make it work with my TV (UE32ES5500)… The AllShare player on the TV can see a server and all files however it doesn't want to open any media (pictures, video, audio) giving me following warning:  "The selected file is not currently supported".  Any ideas how to fix it?

    Thanks a million for all help!

    dpkg -l | grep minidlna
        ii  minidlna                             1.1.0stedy7lucidubuntu1                         ppa-minidlna by stedy

    Wow! …downlading and running the v1.0.25 from sourceforge made a trick!  Thanks a million!

    Ps. Any clue what was wrong with the version I had originally?

  • caribouk

    sorry… I am not familiar with Stedy's builds. He may have a different patch set applied..

    you could always try asking

    Glad you got it working !

    Ps. Make before applying samsung-series-d.patch works fine

  • caribouk

    okay.. lets take this a step at a time..

    Try installing libffmpegthumbnailer-dev .. I think this will resolve the compile error.  See if this works and enables playback of your content through the TV..

    as for the 2nd patch error,  I would forget that patch for the time being.. I may have mixed it up with another one which I use to fix bookmarks on my TV…

  • kocur

    You made my day, it is compiling now!

    FYI for others - the last posts were just about the patch as the TV could play media even without it
