    Default Using SAMMY AllShare - am I missing something

    Hello All,

    Coming from an Epic and boy was it rooted and rommed - had missed the Sammy Program manager and All Share. When running stock could sit on couch and tap into my home computer shared files like my videos and watch whatever I had in there with a couple of clicks on the phone.

    Now running S3 stock and the all share play , every click drives me to Samsung Media or Dropbox and wants me to register devices. I don't know what I did to see the computer, but when it does show - and I drill to my video directory can only see some files, not the hundreds I have on tap. For a recheck took Epic on wifi and tried it again (back on stock for daughter) and poof everything is just as easy and can see everything.

    So the question is, does anyone run Old AllShare on their S3 - not the new and improved or am I missing something in the device/setup to see my PC files ?

    Have not thought about rooting the S3 because the camera seemed very snappy and the battery is so much better that the Epic - but am still navigating around a number of programs I don't use and can't run Titanium - but haven't really missed it.

    I use a samba app for files (I have a samba server in my home) and Mediahouse for my dlna server (streamed) media (I also have TeamSpeak3 app and a TS3 server running). I have never, ever, been able to get Allshare to work. Plus, it just clogs up my PC.

    I messed around with Allshare but it's skippy with music and video, (you have to download and install All Share to your PC as well as the phone to get it to work btw). I also tried Kies Air and Airdroid (works the best of the 3). But for syncing my files I have Goodsync on my PC and Downloaded the Goodsync app for my phone (didn't need the app for my Epic, but with the internal and external sd cards, you need to log in from your phone on the Goodsync app before the Goodsync on your computer will recognize it. I then run Analyze and it will search for any changes, then run Sync and it updates all changes to my PC's external USB drive. I do this for each the internal and external sd cards.
