This should work with the PlexMediaServer (or the Plex app on the TV)

For an explanation of the application (to translate 😁)

Apps for video and sound

VLC: Use this app to display movies and music that are also on your NAS or PC on your TV via DLNA or SMB. If you are using a USB device, it must be formatted to FAT16 or FAT32. NTFS only works with the UHD-Box, exFAT does not.

Swisscom offering first UHD films throughout Switzerland

To coincide with the launch of the new box, Swisscom is also offering a selection of UHD programmes (films and documentaries) for rent. This content will be expanded on an ongoing basis. The first live TV channels in UHD are scheduled to become available from the end of May. Customers will also soon be able to stream YouTube content in UHD using their new box. They can already use the newly integrated VLC media player to watch their own media, e.g. videos shot on their smartphone, in the highest possible resolution.
