Question

What do you recommend for high video storage?

Hello,

My name is Katie Spuhler. I am looking for some kind of device where I can store a LARGE amount of videos and pictures on it and to hook up to a TV and play without internet. Currently we use Apple TV's but they are very difficult and not user friendly in my opinion. Do you have any better suggestions to use than these?

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Re: video

Some TV's can play from an external hard disk or USB-stick.
Some TV's can play from the hard disk of PC in your home network (using something called DLNA).
What options does your TV have?

Apple TV is considered pretty good.

Given what I've seen out there, all the others are worse.

However all of these systems require someone to put the content into some app or arrange the files just so on a server so that to most will be considered not user friendly.

User friendly today seems to be systems that just work like your Netflix. For you to have your personal Netflix then someone has to do the work of setting up the content, servers and more.

Does that sum it up for you?
