Dune base 3d, popcorn hour 410, mede8er 800x3d or plex?
Is the mede8er the best player out of the bunch? i know popcorn hour was having some issues with its firmware, not sure if its still on going?
Is plex just as good as the media streamers besides no iso/3d support?
is the mede8er 800x3d and mede8er 1000x3d the same besides casing?
just looking for the best solution to play the most file types., and lag free. i had a xtreamer but had to constantly run the emergency firmware fix to fix glitches it had.
ill be using the device wirelessly if that matters, incase ones better at streaming.
most of my files are 4gb-20gb mkv's. 800-1.5gb avis, 30-50gb iso's
the way im thinking is,
dune base 3d - best looking casing for home theater setup
popcorn hour 410 - most powerful chip / 1gb ram
mede8er - best 3d support?
plex - free
2. plex is not a media streamer, it's just a DLNA media server that needs a player at the other end (but this can can be many things from any media player to a smart TV)
3. yes, except form factor the x3D range shares the same specs and same firmware across all models.
4. same as gusgus : forget wireless for high bitrate.
I actually have a i3, 8gb htpc i built using mediabrowser in my room currently, before that i had xtreamer sidewinder/xtreamer pro and diamond wonder something?
just im moving into an appartment with a roommate so i need something for both rooms. i have a nas with 12tb's worth of content, so im thinking im going to keep the htpc in my room because it might be a bit too complicated for guests/roommate to use, besides i dont want them messing with it.
i was thinking about just using plex since my samsung supports it but i wouldnt beable to watch 3d bluray iso's.
so i guess im stuck between popcorn 410 and mede8er 600x3d/800x3d. i understand the mede8er is currently more stable but wouldnt you assume that the 410 will be just as stable after some firmware updates?
what is samba, is it a app i can download on my smart tv or something i have to download on a a410?
I would suggest for you to google SMB (samba). It isn't an app. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smb://
I also run a Plex server, but not for playback at home. Plex is absolutely the best option for remote streaming. It's almost as available as Netflix
