Ideas for ISO movie player?

Recommended Posts

I have all of my DVD and BD movies stored as ISO files on a Windows 2012 server. I'm  using a Dune HD media player to stream the movies on my system, but the Dune is giving me problems on a regular basis. Can anyone provide a suggestion on what and how to setup something more reliable (Kodi box, Nvidia shield, etc) that I could replace the Dune media player with? My system is on v2.9.1. Thanks.

A new Dune.

 

No I'm not being a pain. It would be the easiest thing to do. Just make sure you get the right type - not one of the 'android' ones.

 

Shield might be a good way to go, indeed I'm looking at it as a potential option myself (oh if I could freeze time Rick & Morty style for a few months...) but it would be an involved process as far as I can tell at this point.

Note that Dune normally is VERY reliable - so you're likely looking at a faulty unit, or a faulty setup.

Which may be part of it 😉

Thanks for the advice! So far the Infuse Pro app is the easiest and best thing I've ever done with my Control4 system. It's too bad C4 wasn't able to make their own media player work better years ago...

Indeed, it works like a charm... control4 should link up with someone like Firecor (who created Infuse) for this and create perfect integration...

Take a look at Plex.

For me, I went from Kaleidescape (awesome, but expensive) to Plex, and haven't looked back.  We use AppleTVs and haven't been happier.

You can easily add the Plex server on your Windows Server.
