I got the new PSU from odroid and installed a Kodi distribution and the official Plex client. Works great so I can now stream Atmos from my server.

They're $140US from Amazon at the moment, if you don't mind the whole overseas / no CGA thing, and they'll ship direct.

I was using a WDTV Live to play videos on a USB HDD to a TV, connected via HDMI at a remote holiday location.

 

No internet or local network.

 

But now I discover it cant play x265 coded videos.

 

And there are some audio codecs it doesnt like either.

 

I've read this thread but I'm not sure if any of teh devices mentioned here can be used as stand-alone media players.

 

If not, does anyone have any recommendations for a more capable device?

 

Thank you.





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

You could chuck a big usb drive on the Shield and run both Plex server and client on the same box.

raspberry pi or odroid c2 running kodi.

 

I run the second option at work, it supports hardware h265 decoding along with 4k output. we only use it with HDD's or memory sticks. has a IR port so you can setup a remote direct into it, or you can plug in a USB IR receiver.
