I have tried chromecast and amazon firetv. but they are pain in the ass to play content from my pc.

I need something like old asus media player. absolutely not interested in online content just want a media player to play PC videos on my big tv.

Even Windows itself contains basic functionality (first with WMP 12 unless I am mistaken)... When your TV is connected to the network, just rclick a file and pick "Play to -> (your TV)". I've got verified it works well with Philips TVs (3 different models, each in different model line, one pretty lowend). It does the work, but for more advanced things, I concur with Jester Maroc.

Just as i posted this. i used older version of plex which worked lot better then newer version.

all i wanted easy start and play videos with remote control. so far plex with firetv stick is working.
