My 4K TV
Amazon Fire TV is a very good player too and has Ethernet and optical audio
Game controller for Nexus Player
Pros and Cons (more coming soon)
Very nice user interface
Excellent voice search
Smart phone app
Navigation is very easy and looks good
Gaming is easy. Just connect controller and go or use the remote
You can install apps
Most apps work and look very good
Voice search works in Plex too
Kodi (XBMC) can be installed for Nexus Player
Turns out he USB port is fully functional. You can connect storage to it (more in the next video)
No optical audio out
8GB of flash I’d be glad to pay more for 16 or 32GBs.
Voice search doesn’t work in all apps
Navigation works from a distance but voice search doesn’t work as well far away. Luckily the phone app does.
Figured out how to install Kodi (XBMC) on Nexus player. It works well. I’ll add a video soon. Over all I really like the Nexus player and Its just going to get better from here. When the Chromecast first came out it was not very useful. One year later its a must have device for every TV. I think this player will have thousands of apps by next year. Its off to a great start for only being available for a few weeks. I love the direction this player is going with the sweet UI and excellent voice search. I would be glad to pay up to $199 for something with much greater specs and possible 4k output.
Kodi works. Here is the version I used
Like me on Facebook and I’ll show some screen shots of Kodi (XBMC0 installed. The install technique takes a little bit of time so I’ll make a video soon
