Smart TV Samsung & My Cloud

Many thanks cat0w.

At the connection MyCloud- Smart tv, can you use subtitles (*.srt) if they have the same name and they are in same folder that the film?

Thank you very much.

I have tried PLEX between my PC and Smart TV , the problen are the subtitles. I do not see them at TV.
(The films and subtitles are at the PC.)

OK. I will study your comments. Thank you very much.

You asked, “At the connection MyCloud- Smart tv, can you use subtitles (*.srt) if they have the same name and they are in same folder that the film?”

You need to look at the User Manual for your generation of My Cloud. See CH. 11.

I will add this as I don’t know much about .srt subtitles.

I do :confused: … there is NO NEED to re-encode a video file to ‘embedd’ a srt file !

To embedd ie ‘mux’ a srt file into a video container … it is very quick, no re-encoding, no quality loss. External subtitles need to be embedded into the video file for DLNA servers to display them.

100% Freeware Tools: (that support a lot of tasks … embedding subtitles is one of them)

MKV > use MKVMerge (intsalled with MKVToolNix)

MP4 > use MyMP4Box GUI

good help. thank you very much.

Yes this is a solution for subtitles. Thank you very much

This is how I use to connect with my last mycloud, Id see the device as a component on my smart TV input list. I just purchased a new mycloud home and I cant see it any longer and I don’t see a method to share my video folder I created.
I only see a option to share a link with someone. How do I see my mycloud on my TV again?

Sadly, the MyCloud Home is a completely different product, and bears little resemblance to the MyCloud.

Does that mean it is no longer possible

It seems with the My Cloud Home to enable DLNA Media Streaming you have to configure Plex for My Cloud Home.

Which sounds like they dropped support for Twonky Media Server on the My Cloud Home (which the older My Cloud’s do support)

The following WD Knowledgebase article may also be relevant.

Thanks, I had this loaded and can see the PLEX server as a device on the input screen of my TV but it has no content in the files and I have them all in plex. Who do i share it?

Hi, the problem that you can’t watch video on your smart TV probably is the format incompatibility. This is easy to handle with a free video converter like HandBrake to convert video for streaming video on TV.


Hello. I have the An samsung Q7F smart tv. And an WD my cloud Nas thats is connected to my wi-fi. The picture works fine when i watch Movie from it. But i have no sound on any movie. All novors are mkv format.
Can you help me?

@Beastinside Have you read your TV’s User Manual? Are you playing sound through speakers on your TV, a sound bar or do you have a surround sound system? Be sure to check your settings on your TV. Are your external speakers connected by Bluetooth, wifi, or are they wired?

I use my soundbar connected to the tv with bluetooth. Is there any special feature in the settings that i should turn on?

@Beastinside Not with your TV, mine is a Sony, wired to my Surround sound by a digital cable to the receiver.

All I can suggest is check your Manual for connecting a Bluetooth device.
