Media Player with 2TB storage + Girlfriend friendly


Standard Member
Hi - I'm looking for a media player with its own internal storage to use for playing MKV's.

Main two things i'm after -
1) Able to browse Films/Programs by Thumbnails or Movie Wall/Jukebox
2) Needs to be easy enough for my girlfriend to use whilst i'm working away.

I've ordered a PlayOn HD and seperate 2TB drive as it supports YAMJ but have since read it's a lot of button pressing to get to the YAMJ display - So thinking of sending the PlayOn back but will keep the drive to fit to another player .

I was looking at players like Mede8er, WDTV, Asus OPlay HD2 or players around that price point.

Can somebody point me in the direction of what best suits my needs?

Your input is greatly appreciated.

Mede8er has a movie wall feature on the main home screen just give each movie its own folder and fill it with JPG's generated by something like Thumbgen, it also has YAMJ too.

Or the Boxee Box which does it automatically by scanning the media source & file names however you would need an external USB hard drive. You go into Files->Movies in the current GUI they changed it from the PC version doesn't look as nice as older PC version but it does work and gives large coverart for each movie.

Cheers for the reply, I've checked on youtube and it seems straight forward enough to access the movie wall on the Mede8er from its home screen.

So it looks like that will do, I'll just send the PlayOn back and order Mede8er.
