What is the internal video player others have referred to? Does that pass through DTSMA and TrueHD? Will it access network connected SMB shares?

I love Amazon but this is another reason I bought this TV from Sam's Club. I can drop that thing on the counter and walk away with a new one within 90 days of purchase.
