Can Samsung Smart TV play the FLV videos? When you try to do it, your TV may refuse to play some of these FLV videos files with an unhelpful audio codec error message displaying right on your screen. If so, you’ll need to convert the FLV videos files to a fully compatible format with Samsung Smart TV.
You have probably tried this at some time. But strangely, some FLV videos files work and some just don’t seem to be playable on the Samsung Smart TV. Your guesses are right! It’s refusing to play an FLV videos file because of the unsupported audio codec in the video file. For your information, an FLV videos is only a container. Different FLV videos files tends to contain different video and audio codecs. The FLV videos files with unsupported audio codec (i.e. FLV videos DTS files) certainly can’t be played on the Samsung Smart TV. The solution for you is to find a third-party tool to make everything easy.
Luckily, Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate (Mac)is one of the options. It’s good because you can use it as a video converter to first convert your FLV videos files and then play them on Samsung Smart TV and also you can use it to stream FLV videos files with any audio codecs to your Samsung Smart TV as long as it has DLNA support.
