Well, with two you can hide one as a back up and use one attached to your machine. Or to your network, if you have one (we have a wifi network attached to the cable network to get internet to the various computers, tablets and phones in our house).
To follow up on the blu ray, we end up watching a lot of computer files on our big TV (mostly movies and British/PBS mystery shows). This
is very similar to the player we have. It plays .AVI, .MP4, .MKV and other common video file formats. It also plays from a USB port, so it's very simple to copy a file from the computer to a thumb drive and play it on the machine.
We also have a Chromecast, and us it to play things in Chrome and stream them to the TV (the Chrome browser will play several types of video files).
I was not familiar with Flick
. May have to give it a try.
