Playing RMVB by Converting RMVB to Samsung TV

Q: “I have some files in this format, RMVB, but I can't play those with the Plex App from the Samsung Appstore, it always says: Unsupported Video Codec, there's a way to fix this?, or how to download the right codecs for this TV?” 
Answer: Nope, the TV has a hardware player only, so updates would need to come from Samsung in a firmware update, but that won't happen. 

Your best chance is to use transcoding if your PMS server can handle it. 

Go to preferences > Player and enable "Force Local transcoding" in the app. 

Now try again. 

Note: Only do this for movies with unsupported codecs. 

The next version should recognise the bad codecs and handle this better with auto transcoding. 

If your PMS server can’t handle it or want to play RMVB files on Samsung Smart TV perfectly, you need one professional video converter to convert RMVB files to Samsung Smart TV supported formats.
