Anyone know if you can use samba to share a folder to stream music and video files to a wireless enabled dvd player? I have a machine running Ubuntu server and have all my music stored and shared using nfs with my network computers. I just got a Samsung BD-P3600 blu-ray player that has wireless for blockbuster, netflix, pandora, and you tube. You can also setup a shared folder on a Windows system to allow play back on the blu-ray player. I was just wondering if anybody has tried it with ubuntu and samba.

So it does work I setup samba as outlined here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=202605). I had to manually configure the computer information in the dvd player because the automatic picked it up but did not ask for username or password so the share was not available.
