Playstation / Xbox consoles and movie playing UHD 4K


Novice Member
Does anyone have experience with playing 4K UHD a movies on a console Playstation 5 or Xbox via NAS?

4K Movie 80 – 90GB and BDMV structure.

What tools will enable such playback?

If you want to play BDs with full menu from NAS look at Zidoo Z10, see owners thread.

On those consoles your best option is to use MakeMKV on the BDMV folders and extract the main movie to a .mkv container then install Plex media server on the NAS and Plex clients on consoles.

The consoles are not designed to play BDMV outside of disc player.

Kodi is present on Xbox which can read BDMV folders but its 4K media playback is broken and no menu support.
