If I buy an external HDD with a USB 3 connector and plug it into the Pi, is that fast enough to play movies on?

Or is there some special way of connecting an HDD to a Pi?

@GoatsLive

Wow. Time to start saving up for a Pi then!

Thank you, that sounds like exactly what I was after.

@GoatsLive

Can a hard disk be plugged into the Pi to store the videos on?

@GoatsLive

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.)

Atlantic Adventure is a comedy about a reporter.

Behind Green Lights, File on Thelma Jordon and Inner Sanctum are film noirs.

Fighting Lady is a WW2 documentary about an aircraft carrier.

St Louis Bank Robbery is a heist film starring Steve McQueen before he was famous.

Really looking forward to the next Blender Open Movie!
This one is called 'Spring' and will release in just two days online!
Was a blast to follow its development through the weekly production logs and updates on the Blender Cloud.

Video credit goes to Francesco Siddi.

Added "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" (1946), you can watch it here:

Added "High School Big Shot" (1959), you can watch it here:

kino.social/high-school-big-sh

Drama about an intelligent teenager who sees his future slipping away due to his alcoholic father.

Featured on so-bad-its-good series 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.
