Smart TV only seeing three folders on Synology

I recently purchased a older Samsung Smart TV and want to use it stream movies and media from my Synology running DSM 4.3. I installed Media Server and the TV sees the Diskstation but for some reason only displays 3 folders on from it (video, Music, and Photos). I store all my media in different folders than those three 'default' ones. If I copy a movie into the video folder, the TV can see and play it. How can I get other folders on the Synology to show up on the TV? For example, volume1\movies?

Thank you!

Brian

On the Synology, go to Control Panel, then Media Indexing Service.
Go to the Indexed folder tab.
Add whichever other folders you want the SmartTV to see.
It will take a little time, depending on the number of movies and other media you have in these folders, for them to get indexed and show up.
