    Local -- can't go wrong with VLC- free/open source. Been around forever. Lots of keyboard shortcuts to use.

  • Kodi Home Theater Software

    Kodi is an award-winning free and open source home theater/media center software and entertainment hub for digital media. With its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine, it's available for Android, BSD, Linux, macOS, iOS and Windows.

    Network -- Either PLEX or KODI are really good media server apps. The app runs on a computer 24/7, and then you "send" the video feed to the TV of your choice either via Smart Stick or a tiny media computer connected to the TV via HDMI. Think of them as your own personal Netflix.

  • Scout APM
