There's no way to do it over an SMB share (no SAMBA client on the phone afaik).
- you can mount a samba (cifs) share on your phone.
- you need a custom rom to enable it (specifically, one with a cifs module available and loaded in the kernel - cyanogen latest, for example).
This link is almost right:
I had to:
mount -t cifs //<ip>/<share> /data/portal -o username=<user>,password=<password>
from a root shell and then I was able to actually mount the share to a blank dir I made on my sdcard.
Now when I browse in a file manager, I can view photos, play videos, play mp3s over wifi. Bear in mind the playback capabilities of your device - you will still need a video with a small enough bandwidth to be:
- shown on this screen
- effectively streamed over your wifi
I had previously encoded some videos for my old n95 specifically for this purpose (I intended to move them onto the sd card) and these videos played perfectly in the stock video player, over the CIFS mount.
That was a good day.
P.S. you can use "lsmod" to see which modules are available in your kernel/rom.
