use serviio without mediabrowser/dlna

Hello
(first, sorry for my bad english...)

I will install rpi 3 on familly. TV is not on network (=> no dlna...) and i will plug rpi on tv only by hdmi.

It's possible to use serviio and watch movie on mode "plex/kodi" ?

I will use only BT remote control for play/next movie. (with mediabrowser, i need use keyboard)

It's possible with feature on serviio? plugin?

thank a lot,
Eric.

Re: use serviio without mediabrowser/dlna

The only user player that Serviio provides is MediaBrowser. Since you plan to connect the Raspberry directly to the TV via HDMI, you need something with a user interface designed for use at the TV screen level. Kodi is certainly one such option, as is Plex (although I'm unsure if Plex can be installed on a Raspberry).

As you noted, MediaBrowser pretty much needs a keyboard/mouse to be able to select what you want to view. From my limited experience with Kodi, I believe that might be your best bet. I did just look at the Plex web site, and they do have a Plex Media Player that works on a Pi2, so it should work on the 3 as well. Of course, I don't know exactly what OS you will be running, so I'm just making some educated guesses.
