Where did you get your movies from that you can't access on your smart tv? You should be able to stream them from wherever/whatever app you got them from...unless you got them illegally

But nevertheless, AllCast mentioned above is an option, but I think the better option is to get a TV video adapter for your phone? Why not get an HDMI/MHL cable? Duh! They're cheap, like 10 bucks off ebay. Make sure you have the 10/11-pin adapter, not the 5-pin, in regards of the Note 3.

If screen mirroring isn't your savvy and you want the full HD experience of accessing your videos directly thru usb, there is a way to mount your phone as a usb mass storage rather than MTP, but Samsung (and others) don't allow that capability in their OS's (probably to try to get you to use their stupid Kies software). To work around this you'll need root and a terminal emulator. In terminal enter su and type "setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage". THIS MIGHT REALLY MESS UP YOUR USB & ADB CONFIGURATION. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! Really it's not a big deal tho, to revert back use "setprop persist.sys.usb.config mtp,adb" and reboot like 3 times until it finally fixes itself.

Hope this helps!

What's the best format of a video to be played on a TV? I haven't tried this yet. My videos are currently on MP4 format. Thanks!

You guys can go complain to Samsung then. Your best bet is Allcast.
