|The latest AVM routers do have MediaServer included.|
So you can connect a USB hard drive to the router and configure the Fritzbox, to act as a MediaServer.
The MediaServer uses DLNA, which is also supported by the Samsung TV.
You also can buy a NAS drive from QNAP or Synology or whatever.
For me, Synology NAS works great.
No need to run PC, when playing videos, music or photos.
Depending on the BD player you have, you might be able to connect it to your network and configure the DLNA server, you're using, so that the BD player will play music, videos and photos, stored on your NAS.
