    First question.
    I currently still struggle to play 4K UHD movies iso/folder. I don't care if it's HTPCs, UHD players, or android boxes. Just tell/show us how you currently play your 4K UHD movies iso/folder.
    Thanks and I appreciate it.

    Hi,

    I'm using a Zidoo X9S for play 4K movies. I
    I transform ISO formats into REMUX. But the Zidoo can read ISO formats.

    I copy the the entire UHD folder to an external hard drive, connect it to my Oppo UHD player via USB. I am able to play all the movies I got from here this way except kick-ass.

    it's a good multimedia platform too.
    The difference is especially at the level of the multimedia manager.
    Zappeti uses its own manager, while Zidoo uses ZDMC (slightly modified SPMC or KODI). It's nice for those who already know Kodi.
    After this is just a personal opinion, but the image quality of the Zidoo is beautiful.
    And there is a very good follow-up of Team Zidoo, concerning the firmwares .....

    After it is mostly a personal choice and certainly a question of use that we want to make ...

    Really? I thought Oppo player cannot play BD iso/folder so I presume it cannot handle UHD folder as well.
    Hmm, I will give it a try somehow.

    I'm also using the Oppo UDP-203 with a external HD connected to the back USB input. Plays UHD folders perfectly and it can handle Dolby Vision movies.

    Zappiti is good but their animation/transition not so good
    They had beautiful database and can read blu-ray menu with native player not something like Kodi, RKMC. SPMC etc

    Zidoo and Himedia is good too, they are offering Android OS, just in case u wanna stream Youtube
    Popcorn Hour A500 really good for media player because Dolby Atmos & DTS X audio passthrough and nice soundcard (Sabre) but I'm not sure with 4K capability

    my reference is reviewer at cnx software, roberto jorge, redskull
    u can googling it

    The cheap lg 4k blu ray player does this flawlessly also. Believe its the 870 model. It just came out for the holidays. It has to be the stream file. Will not work with remux's of 4k. Blu ray remux's yes, 4k remux no. The raw files play as if the disc was inserted. It can be bought for $99. Worth every penny.

    Playing UHD movies with HTPC made of Windows 10 with Kaby Lake Pentium G6420 with GTX 1050TI.
    Running with MPC-HC + MadVR all movies running like a charm

    I don't have 4k set up.. but I do play bluray files off external HD. The bluray player I use is oldskool (sony bdps580) which is cinavia free just so long as I don't update to latest firmware on it. I have it updated to the firmware w/o the cinavia that they tried to push out. I believe this is the last sony bluray player that doesn't come w/ cinavia built into it.

    I download the full BD onto external HD, and move the bdmv folder up to top level. I plug in the external HD to usb connection of the bluray player, and it see's it as a bluray.

    If the file I download is ISO, then I just use ISObuster software to copy the BDMV to external HD and do the same.

    One good thing about having it on external HD is you can just delete the movie if you think its crap =) This way I don't have spindles of disc lying around.

    OR you can just use hdmi from your computer to reciever to play the file if you are lazy. I use the latest CCCP codec and use MPC-HC to play. I use this to play mostly anime.
