    I need a software to play movies over dlna from my iMac to my Samsung TV..

    It has to play .mkv files with subs included.

    So far I've tested these ones:

    Plex (Could not play .MKV's - with subtitles -)
    Eyeconnect (Could not play MKV files)
    Serviio (Could not play MKV's with subs, Does not always find my TV)
    TVMobili (Could not play MKV with subs)

    Any more ideas ?

    I could be mistaken but I could swear that this works for me. Streaming from a Mac mini running 10.7 and a like 2 - 3 revision old version of Plex media server to a new Samsung Plasma with the Plex widget installed. I may give it a try later and report back.

    Are you sure the MKVs do indeed have subs embedded, like do they show properly when watching on your Mac?

    That is a Russian Format why not keep it simple Use One of the many free apps available, convert to MP4 and put on a thumb drive, plug into the Samsung AND ITS DONE.
    ANYTHING WIRELESS IS PROBLEMATIC its just not worth the hassle

    This maybe a silly comment but couldn't you AirPlay it over with an Apple TV regardless of file type?
