Firmware change?

Is there a mod for my Samsung BluRay player that will let me steam everything, not just the Pandora/Blockbuster/Netflix/YouTube that it streams? It's connected wirelessly to the web, can it be changed to point to another URL?

do you have the actual model number? that would be helpful. I doubt you could do much more than add DNLA streaming of local media...

It uses various apps to do Netflix, YouTube, etc. Think like iOS apps, except that they're Samsung apps.

You would have to find firmware that included a web browser or configurable media player or something, which would be a fairly substantial project (not impossible, but I'm doubtful anyone has spent the time required to implement a web browser on top of Samsung's box).

Seeing as how even one of Samsung's own firmware updates managed to render my Samsung blu-ray into a brick, be aware that fooling with the firmware is risky business.
