just put the movies or photos in the public folder pc C: \ Users \ Public \ Videos \ Sample Videos make the folder accessible to the network, enter the SmartShare TV devices go, there we are well networked PC, open the folder and run on the tv the contents of the folder, even movies ih hd.not all video formats are played though.But a trick c 'is to see many extensions rejected. Just change the 'extension for example: title film.mkw in title film.avi and software stupid com' is read it. software read film.avi
As the limit of reading files the programmer has only tied to its extension, in fact ancestors reads it, because inside the software also has the decoding extensions excluded, the law.

otherwise make the whole folder pc public access to the network, and display on the TV all that you put into it. photo folder, folder, movies, etc., etc.

this can also be a way to watch movies that TV with the mess of browser that does not allow you to view, download them in that folder to then from there you can vederli.solo that you have to keep the PC on.
Unfortunately get a tv that should exclude the home PC for functions that tell you, but then t realize that absolutely does that for which you have bought, they sold just smoke and mirrors.
in hindsight it was better just a tv, hd receiver combo and separate PC connected on it.
we really had a complete multimedia station, we were screwed.
