You probably need to be a bit more specific in what you want/need to play


There's literally hundreds of media streamers out there.


If you need to play low-res mkvs with stereo sound pretty much anything from $50 units up will work great.


if you need to play bluray ISOs with full menus and 7.1 HD audio it's a much much shorter list (and you'll need a better solution than usual wifi for networking)


If you need to play specific internet content that eliminates some too.



What all do you need it to do? What video formats? what audio formats? what type of networking will you use? what (if any) online content must it support? video streamed over a network or from locally attached storage? etc...
