You won't be able to. The videos are optimized for LCD and color levels 16-235 not 0-255. I couldn't see the problem on my LCD laptop either. It's a combination of things:

- SAMOLED technology and its ability to display deep blacks
- videos being encoded with optimized color levels for LCD (see above)
- Samsung's gamma is off

All of those combine to contribute to this problem...
