I have a bunch of ISO HD movies, x264, x265 and more on external hard drives.

Looking for an easy way to stream them to my TV using my Xbox one or a Playstation 4
if memory serves if you have usb hdd cases you can plug the drives into the console will detect them and kodi should be able to access the contents,
OK cool. Just want to be sure before I purchase anything.

I read last year I had to use Plex but I am trying to ONLY use external hard drives plugged right into the gaming console


I wonder if Xbox is better than PS4 at this?
I would check to see if your router has a USB port that will allow you to share data over the network.

 No router, I have a WiFi hot spot


Looking to ONLY use USB and hard drive, not network
