Hi all.
I have three samsung tv's in the house and I have been using samsung allshare to stream from my server. It all works fine but I have small children and they use it as well so I can't share my movies in allshare else my children will have access as well.
Does anyone know how I might be able to block some folders to some tv's?

Cheers

If your server is Windows-based you can use media sharing (media streaming in Windows 7/8) to selectively share your media library to only certain devices, including Samsung TVs, and keep the kid-friendly stuff on Allshare. Windows does have a "Parental Rating" concept for media files which you can also use to control sharing, but it only works on WMV files (not AVI or MKV).

Thanks numfarr, I tried your solution and got it to work after a fair bit of mucking around as most files are mkv and wmp doesn't support mkv. But ultimatly switched to Serviio as it works brilliantly and even lets me ff video and block connected devices.
Cheers
