Okay, first, I'm sure there's other threads with this question asked and answered, but I couldn't find any new ones, so I figured I'd ask again.
Basically, here's my situation:
Currently, I have a PS3 in my bedroom, with my laptop 3 feet to the left, on my desk. I am constantly streaming video from my laptop (specifically the external HDD I have) to my HDTV (right above my PS3) and/or watching netflix directly off of my PS3. Next month, GTA 5 comes out, and I plan on getting it for PS3. Problem is, I am going to be moving my PS3 to my basement, where it is more readily available for my brother to play as well. Of course, I could get it for my 360, which is already down there, but I'd much rather get it for PS3, for several reasons. Since GTA 5 would be the only game I use for PS3, there would be no point in spending $200 on a new PS3, when all I'm doing is streaming media; a blu ray player can do that just fine, for over $100 cheaper than a new PS3, most likely. So, I have decided I will move my PS3 downstairs next month, and buy a new blu ray player to replace it in my bedroom, so I can continue streaming media. Now, the question is, what is my best option for a cinavia free blu ray player. I read that all players after 2012 have cinavia, is that right? Also, what is the best one that can play .mkv files?
I'd rather not have to deal with any programs to convert files or anything like that.

Thread: Best non-cinavia Blu Ray Player
Simple, get a wdtv media player or similar unit that has no bluray entanglements. No cinivia to worry about.Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
How does it work? Only thing is, it doesn't have a BD drive.
Any blu ray player certified after February 2012 will have Cinavia. So you won't find many for sale in new condition that were introduced before that.
If you want to play from optical discs, you might look for a used Oppo BDP-93. Very expensive, but you did ask for the best. Here is the page of supported files: http://wiki.oppodigital.com/index.php?title=BDP-93_Media_Files_FAQ The Oppo BDP-95 is even more outrageously priced, so I didn't think you'd want to consider it.
