APPLE TV Best solution: plex media server + intuse Pro 6android TV best solution: plex media server + Kodi + plex official Kodi plug-in uses plex media server to manage media information and subtitles uniformly. Intuse Pro 6 / Kodi can ensure that the playback is always decoded locally to avoid starting the transcoding playback mode of plex... Generally, the CPU of NAS can't bear to run real-time transcoding. After transcoding, there are also problems of quality loss and HDR information loss. In terms of combination degree: in addition to some differences between UI logic and native plex, the official cooperation between infuse and plex is basically perfect in combination with plex system. It is also the best fit for tvos.
The best solution for Android TV: the official Kodi plug-in of Kodi + plex, which is officially launched by the native plex, has completely built the user interface of Kodi into the operation logic of plex. I think it's much better than the native user interface of Kodi... It also uses Kodi's local decoding kernel. The system and hardware of Sony's TV after 2017 can smoothly play 4K HDR movies.
