    Default Box that plays xvid divx, avi, mkv etc?

    Can anyone give me any info on those boxes you can buy that play xvid divx, avi, mkv, mp4 etc? I dont anything about them but came across them when looking for a USB dvd player to play these files them but failed miserably! I bought a dvd player from Sainsburys but it only plays avi and divx!

    Thanks

    theres a few posts recently about android based XBMC boxes, although I can't find the most recent one at a quick glance.

    I've got an LG BD550. It plays everything I have thrown at it. It also supports DNLA using plex or you can just stick a USB stick into it. And it's a bluray player too.

    I have this, it's great. Plug and play, no transcoding so no lags. Doesn't ;list XVID specifically, but I'll try one tonight if you want to double check?

    Nice and small and plays everything I have tried on it.

    I think they have a new android version of this as well but not tried it.

    I'm also looking a new media player as my wdtv won't play HEVC x.265. Even the media player in the tv won't decode it which is pretty stupid has anyone came across one.

    You'll be hard pushed to find anything to play HEVC x265 natively yet. It's been developed to replace x264, but is that new, it's not caught on with manufacturers yet.

    It is way more superior and produces far better quality video with a lot smaller file size. I've only seen Kodi and Plex introduce support for it so far.

    -edit
    And of course VLC.

    I've got a release with it. I'll hunt it down...

    edit -
    I got this and tested it out.

    As you can tell by the seeders/leechers, it's not caught on as much as it should yet. Plex really benefits from smaller filesizes when transcoding on the fly! Especially when the client supports x265.

    The factor that usually makes releases large is the Audio chosen by the releaser. 5.1 DTS Audio in an MKV would usually take up over ¾'s of the filesize.

    As we know, Stereo MP3 or AC3 can be at a fraction of the size.

    There are actually a few releases out there after searching.
    Alpha.House.S01E04.WEBRip.1080p.x265.INTERNAL.DD5.1-Absinth
    Some.Girls.S03E06.INTERNAL.WEBRip.x265-DEADPOOL

    and a few others. There's release of Desolation of Smaug too but no idea if any of these are even real!

    Chromecast dongle + Plex + Chromecast Smart App.

    Sorted.

    This can also be used for BT Sports and things like Netflix and also you can push your phone/tablet screen up to the TV.

If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
