I currently use a LG 830 I think it is, but it cannot play HVEC/x265, only the older 264 codec. Are there any players that can stream the newer codec from my NAS? My LG can see the, just cannot play them.
TIA

I'm a bit confused. The LG you are referring to ...is it your tv or your blu ray player? I don't think there are any blu ray players that can decode HEVC. Most PCs and laptops these days can if that option is available to you (hdmi out?). In my experience Potplayer (free) is the best software to use for HEVC.

Sorry for the late reply. THGs notifications don't seem to work any more. But the LG is a blue ray player. The only thing I've found so far that streams it I own is my laptop (or desktop of course) but I think some of the media players can such as nVidia's shield. I've tried to find out if an AP for my amazon firestick could do it but I dont think it has enough hardware to do it, but again, not sure. Perhaps the 4K firesticks can.
