Can I get AVI working with Plex to watch on my Samsung TV?
I finally sorted out all my media on the weekend and I'm running Plex to be able to watch my stuff on my Samsung TV using smart hub. I really have no idea in terms of the tech side of running media servers, and can only assume I have something wrong in the settings. MP4 and MKV files work perfectly, but avi will not play. I have no idea if it's at the media server end or at the TV where the issue is occuring however. I can play the file within Plex on my PC without trouble, but when you look at those files on the TV they are showing as 0MB and will not play. I installed PS3 media server and all works fine from there on the TV with all formats working, but I don't like the UI for it, so would prefer to get it working with Plex.
