Wow. Time to start saving up for a Pi then!
Thank you, that sounds like exactly what I was after.
Can a hard disk be plugged into the Pi to store the videos on?
That sounds good... it would be nice to have a little box that I could plug into the TV and watch stuff from.
Is it difficult to install Kodi on a Raspberry Pi?
Does anyone know if there's an open source app that lets you easily browse video files on your computer sorted by genres, date of publication etc, with screenshots and a graphic interface?
(So, sort of like Netflix but offline and entirely on your own PC.)
Been away for a bit but am back now.
I've added a few more films to https://kino.social:

Added "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" (1946), you can watch it here:
Noir drama starring Barbara Stanwyck as a wealthy woman's niece, together with Kirk Douglas in his first film role.

Gosh, you're right! Just checked and they show the men outside *after* they showed her stabbed.
Question is whether Hitchcock did this by mistake or on purpose?
I think someone asked him who sent the biplane in "North By Northwest" and he said he had no idea? Maybe he was in the habit of throwing in exciting but don't-think-too-much scenes 😮
Added "High School Big Shot" (1959), you can watch it here:
Drama about an intelligent teenager who sees his future slipping away due to his alcoholic father.
Featured on so-bad-its-good series #MST3K in 1994, but since then the film has won some sincere fans online who argue it is actually a good movie.
Lead actor Tom Pittman was much in demand, but died suddenly in a car accident and this became his final film.
Can't remember the actor's name.
Many thanks to the reader who pointed out there's also a Public Domain film list on PeerTube:
and there's lots of PD stuff being uploaded by the list maintainer:
