NAS - LG OLED C8

Question

Hello,

 

any experience with NAS for streaming 4K HDR movies with video bit rate over 50 Mbps?

do I need some special expensove NAS or shluld be the cheapest one ok? E.g. Synology 218?

I would use Plex as a server and Xplay in my LG and direct play everything. So my question is if The NAS has to meet some preferences.

If you only plan on streaming to one TV then you could purchase a NAS with a direct HDMI out on it, and if you want to have 4K output you will need something with an Intel CPU not an ARM.

Something like this:

Or, you could even try the new Raspberry Pi 4, which has a more powerful CPU and would happily out put via HDMI straight to your TV.

Hi,

this is not definitely feasible solution. My TV is on the wall, so there is no space for NAS. Otherwise I would stream movies directly from my MacBook. I need NAS to be mounted as a network drive a use it as a server - ideally through PLEX.

 

Secondly, Raspberry 4B should support 4K movies now, but there are first reviews on the internet saying that softwares are not compatible and prepared for such streaming yet.

      I have the following setup:
       
      LG 55EF950V television which is running webOS 2.2.0-1317 (this should be the latest version of the OS).
       
      I have a number of video files on my Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS which I connect to with the TV over DLNA (on the TV this is Smart Share -> Devices -> (NAS))
       
      I can see all the video files and play them etc., however when viewing the list of files I dont see any thumb images even though I have a JPEG image for each file.  For example: "My Video.mkv" has a thumb call "My Video.jpg".  For collections I put a "cover.jpg" image in the directory (this doesnt work either on the LG TV).
       
      Has anyone else out there managed to get a webOS 2 TV to show video thumb nail images for videos over DLNA?
       
       
      BTW: this all works when I use a Samsung TV so I dont think it has anything to do with the way the Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS is setup.

      This is a brand new set, first 2 days was fine. Today after an update, I would play a youtube video and audio drops out totally after around 5 mins in. Video still plays, just no audio. Also happens when watching amazon prime. Also sometimes on amazon prime it just crashes and brings me to HDMI 4 screen (I got a nintendo switch plugged in there, but not turned on). It's frustrating to say the least, could someone please help me with this?

      Hi
      I am trying to stream and display my favorite song collections on a smart TV, all failed. I had previously used samsung s3 to connect via bluetooth, but when i used iphone x to connect, the system reported an incompatible error. Can someone tell me why the connection was not successful? Here are the songs I want to play on my TV:
