Argh, I’ve been watching all my videos over my network for years, now what do I do?
Seems like a backwards move, as even my new TV can now play video off my dlna server.

So what I am trying to to do is stream videos from my phone to my DVD player. Both the phone and DVD player are connected to the router via WiFi. I am using the built in DLNA feature in Android Jellybean to set up DLNA. The DVD player has no trouble seeing my phone. The problem that I run into is when I try to play the videos from the DVD player.
I have a machine that does everything, it's my router, WirelessAP(s), NAS, etc. and I've set up a DLNA server on it, but it's not being seen by any DLNA compliant devices (DLNA apps on Android Tablet or a WDTV Live).
I have an older Samsung TV that isn't compatible with DLNA.
Is there an adapter or app that I could purchase that would allow my TV to become DLNA compatible.
Ideally, I'd like to push video to the TV via iMediaShare (from my S4)
Was running 13.10 and recently did fresh install of 14.04. Previously on 13.10 I could watch recorded shows or videos stored on masterbacked using Panasonic IPTV box. However since moving to 14.10 this no longer works. I can see the recordings and list of videos available but when attempting to play them the Panasonic box hangs up forcing me to power cycle it.
