This app is no longer being developed and unfortunately the developers are no longer available.  However, there are still users that have it installed and report that it is working okay.  The LiveTV portion is very basic.  If you have any issues though we will try to help as much as possible.  

 

Supported Devices
Samsung TV's, Blu-ray Disk Players and Home Theatre Systems with older "Orsay" SmartHub operating system.

Specifically: D-Series (2011), E-Series (2012), F-Series (2013), H-Series (2014) plus some entry level J and K series models which still have Orsay.

If you don't know what series TV you have, please see the below link:

Screenshots can be found here.

If you would rather download the zip and host it on your own web server you can do the following:

 

METHOD 1:

 

1. Download the appropriate zip for your model TV *

 

2.  Copy the zip file to the subfolder Widget under the root of the default download folder on your web server

 

I'm using IIS and the zip file is in:

 

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Widget\Emby_1.0.8_Europe_20190308.zip         (example filename) 

 

You can try renaming the file whatever you want, but some systems have been known to have problems installing unless the filename is in format "Emby_<version>_<region>_<yyyymmdd>.zip"

 

3. Create a file called widgetlist.xml in the root folder

 

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\widgetlist.xml

 

Place this information in the xml file changing the IP to your web server's IP and the filename if needed.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rsp stat="ok">
<list>
<widget id="Emby">
<title>emby</title>
<compression type="zip" size="919000"/>
<description/>
<download>http://192.168.x.x/W...pe_20190308.zip</download>
</widget>
</list>
</rsp>

4. Install the app using your own web server's IP and the appropriate instructions for your model year TV in the posts above

 

* The latest third party app zip files can be found at the below link.  Just change the branch to the version that supports your year model TV and click Download ZIP

 

https://github.com/M.../SamsungSmartTV

 

**The official Orsay app is NOT available for download at this time.

 

METHOD 2:

 

As an alternate there is a third party app developed by user Spooky on the SamyGo forum which can install a downloaded zip file to your tv without having to set up a web server.  This method will work on D/E/F/H and entry level J-series Orsay TVs.  For more information on this app please visit the link below:

 

https://forum.samygo...?t=6560)#p47507

 

 

METHOD 3:

 
If you do not have a Windows system but have MacOS (or Linux), then you can setup a temporary server on MacOS desktop/notebook systems.
 
Follow these steps:
  1. Get systems IP address (e.g. using ifconfig Terminal command)
  2. Download Emby-App zip file that's appropriate for your Samsung TV (here https://github.com/M.../SamsungSmartTV)
  3. Create folder under your Home folder called emby (e.g. /User/YourName/emby)
  4. Create another folder under emby called Widget (e.g. /User/YourName/emb/Widget)
  5. Copy that zip file to the Widget folder (e.g. /User/YourName/emby/Widget/Emby_1.0.8_Europe_20190308.zip)
  6. Edit a file called widgetlist.xml in the emby folder (e.g. /User/YourName/emby/widgetlist.xml)
  7. Copy the following code into that file & change the IP address & the zip file name (step 8):
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <rsp stat="ok">
    <list>
    <widget id="Emby">
    <title>emby</title>
    <compression type="zip" size="919000"/>
    <description/>
    <download>http://192.168.x.x/W...pe_20190308.zip</download>
    </widget>
    </list>
    </rsp>
  8. Change the IP address to the one you obtained from Step 1. and zip filename from step 2. and save the file widgetlist.xml
  9. Start the Terminal App and goto the emby folder (e.g. cd /User/YourName/emby)
  10. Start a temporary web server using PYTHON using the following command:python -SimpleHTTPServer 80
  11. Go to your TV and install the Emby App using your MacOS's IP address (detailed instructions here)
  12. When complete, stop the temporary web server on your Mac by entering Control-C on the terminal.
     
Note:
If your MacOS is already hosting a webserver on port 80, then this method will not work unless you stop that server first.
For those with Linux desktop/notebooks, these instructions apply as most Linux variants have Python 2.x installed.
