Samsung Players Now Support Youtube and MKV

Posted Tue Sep 8, 2009 at 01:00 PM PDT by Mike Attebery

Thanks to a recent firmware update, Samsung’s current line of Blu-ray players have added support for a pair of popular online viewing options.

The ever popular Youtube is now viewable on Samsung Blu-ray players, joining the already competitive range of services like Netflix and Pandora, already available on 2009 models. Expectedly but disappointingly, Youtube’s HD content is unable to be streamed.

The ever increasingly popular MKV format is now supported by the players. A favorite of those acquiring digital HD content by less than reputable means, MKV is the format most commonly found when downloading HD videos.

This pair of post purchase upgrades adds significant value to Samsung’s BD-P1600, BD-P3600 and BD-P4600 players.
