Streaming to Samsung TVs FAQ
Our app can work on any Samsung Smart TV manufactured in 2011 and later. If you don’t know in which year your TV was made, please look for the letter after the screen size number in the device’s model number (D, E, F, H, J, K, Q & M stand for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 respectively).
Example: If the device’s model number is UE55(F)8000AFXZ, the letter for manufacture years is F, and means the TV was made in the year of 2013.

With this method of transferring the file, some functions may not be available, in particular the Pause function.
Tip: Keep the “Use native playback when supported” option checked.
This error means that the DLNA function on your TV is currently blocked by some other application. Turn off the TV and unplug the power cord from the socket. Wait a few seconds, plug the power cord back into the socket, then turn on the TV and start streaming the file.
