Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need a solution to watch my movies from my desktop to my tv.

Is there a way i can do this with a hdd or something? 

I don't want to plug and unplug from my tv every time i want something new loaded onto that drive.
Explain like I'm five.

Sure! You can grab the Plex Media Server software. You can run Plex Media Server on any Windows/Mac/Linux computer. From there you can use nearly any gaming console or streaming stick connected to your TV to stream from that computer's library.

No TV, that I've seen, really offers that kind of support or playback. Your PC (or having a small HTPC, or Android box) would be your only real way of hooking up to your TV to be able to watch stuff from a hard drive.

My tv supports most files trough usb 3.0

Then load them onto an external HDD and do it that way or go with an option mentioned here. Only other thing I can think of is maybe a Western Digital MyCloud but I have little idea on if that would work or not. Do some research on that one.
