Compact device to play Blu-ray ISO from NAS ?
I have my collection of physical Blu-ray discs backed up to a central NAS running Ubuntu with ZFS.
One of my rooms is small, and has the TV wall-mounted. This is an HD/3D TV, not 4K or HDR. There is no practical/logical space for a physical disc player near the TV, or a full-fledged HTPC.
I'm looking for small wall-mountable device, or perhaps some streaming stick, that can perform the task of playing ISO blu-rays from the NAS, preferably with menus. Ideally, the same device should also be able to play Netflix and Amazon Prime video also, as the Netflix app on the Sharp TV no longer works, and there was never a Prime video app. But if not, I could get a separate stick for those.
While I'm very much a techie (software engineer by day), I would still like to use the least painful option. What would be recommended, preferably under $100.
