Also Infuse will play them off NAS easily, without the need for a server.
wowee. thanks for the heads up, jeevestobs. I [surprisingly] got an ATV4 the other day, a lot sooner than I thought I would, so that's good to know.
I dunno if I'll be really quick to pay $6-7 for MrMC just yet because Plex and Infuse are doing so well with every other format, and I haven't figured out VLC, yet. So MrMC would only be used for DVD images if I want to start organizing those. And also, from what I see, that MrMC app is so bleeding ugly (and I don't want to have the hobby of customizing it to whatever extent it's able), so I don't want to replace Plex with it.
But that's so great to know the capability actually is there.
Thanks! I'll have to (or want to) get a USB-C cable at some soon point so I'll have to wait until then. Kodi might be a much more worthwhile option than buying a paired down option, so I'll look more into it.You could also side-load Kodi (what used to be XBMC, and what MrMC came from) onto the ATV4. Just got done doing it myself, in order to play .iso files from a HD hanging off my AirPort Extreme. So far the only downside is using the ATV remote for playback. Since it doesn't have DVD playback controls, you have to bring up Kodi's on-screen controls and select them.
Other than that, it's all gravy.

When I was looking for ATV4s, I saw on eBay that people are selling "jailbroken" 4s with Kodi on them at higher costs. (I wasn't interested in buying, but I noticed them.) But Kodi can just be side-loaded on to the current TV OS? That's sort of funny…
