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.

    • Question: Annoying pop-up messages on my lg 49sj800v smart tv

      I have owned this tv for a year and pleased with it ... until about a month ago. I now have constant repetitive messages in top right hand corner of screen saying 'Unknown device disconnected' or 'wired network is connected' or wired lan cable is connected' and it's driving me crazy. I have tried the lg live chat technical support and they were not aware of the issue but I've seen the same problem discussed on US forums and here too. Nobody seems to be able to have a solution. I have unplugged all external stuff - Virgin V6 box, Wii, wired internet, etc and it still happens. Help!!

    • Question: IPlayer / Freeview Play

      I have a strange problem with freeview play and Iplayer on my 55 E6 I need help first is this the correct place to post 
      The problem started about 2 months ago 
      If i select a BBC program from the past by scrolling through the freeview guide Iplayer starts as usual But when it starts playing there is no picture or sound if subtitles are on you can see the the subtitles going by but no sound of picture.

      if i start iplayer using the app UI to watch the same program it works fine 
      all other catch up works through the freeview guide 
      If i am watching a bbc program and press green to restart the program it works ok also
      I have contacted Freeview they told me to contact BBC 
      I have contacted bbc iplayer help they told me to contact LG 

      I contacted John Lewis they sent an engineer he said he would report the issue to LG 
      I am told LG said they did not see it as a problem and would do nothing 
      I spoke to John Lewis again and was told LG tvs do not support Iplayer any more 

      I also have a 55uh850v that I use in my cinema as a 3d monitor this tv is olso webos3 this tv has exactly the same problem 
      I also have a 49UH610v this works perfectly 
      I also have a OLED55B7V this has the freeview guide disappearing problem that is well documented in "LG TV Freeview Play" forum but when its working the Iplayer works ok
      I have 70mg fibre broad band and the tvs are on wired ethernet 

      I do not know what to do next
