Just saw this post whilst surfing the same problem, it is rather annoying that Samsung choose to ignore Mac users.
It won't stop me buying their TV's as I love me new 51inch 3D Smart TV.
I use Vuze on my imac and MBP and stream movies through this to my TV, but you have to use ethernet cable as streaming Blueray or 3D is well poor (wireless little slow).
It's also free which is great.
However I run Vuze

The answer to your problems are the following
1. Apple TV ($99.00) + OSX Mountain Lion Mirroring ($20 for upgrade)
2. Buy a Windows 7 license ($300+) and either install it in bootcamp or load it up in a virtual machine using your preferred virtualization tool (parallels, Fusion, Other = $79.00 retail) and download Allshare.
3. Complain to Samsung ($0.00 but lots of time wasted without any results)

Oh boy, this is your lucky day! I have a 55" Samsung 6000 series very similar to your 60". There is an awesome media server for Mac called Plex. You install Plex Media Server and the Plex client on your Mac (actually supports Windows and Linux). It is Free. A third party has just released a Plex App on the Samsung store and your TV is supported today. 2012 mode
TV's not yet supported.
Plex will also stream to iPhone, iPad, and Android. There is a Rovio client, etc. Plex also streams over DLNA but the native Plex is better.
At the moment the Plex App for Samsung only streams video (tv shows, movies) that you ripped with Handbrake, etc. it will be adding music and photo streaming (iTunes, etc.).

I have just installed serviio ( http://serviio.org ) - a free DLNA media streaming server on my iMac. I just linked it to the movies on the iMac, then went to the Allshare app on my Samsung TV. Serviio was waiting for me under the videos section of AllShare, no issues.
