In fact, there are more ways to play HEVC on TV. You can connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable and play the HEVC file on the TV through the computer. But a more popular choice is to set up a Plex server to stream HEVC files to the TV. Yet, I don’t find this method good enough to stream high-definition movies and the videos often turn choppy due to various errors. In all, I prefer the traditional way to play video on TV from USB.
