There is no such thing as a BluRay player that plays all codecs.
Buy a computer.
Otherwise try the international award-winning OPPO UDP-205, which has Dual ESS ES9038PRO Sabre Pro DACs. https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-udp-205/. For starters, that is. Some say there are better ones at somewhat higher cost.
SONY sucks, and their contempt for their customers knows no bounds.
You did ask for "the best", right? Or am I misreading?

What form are your files in? If they're all on optical discs, as LMotlow stated,, you'll need a PC or laptop. If they're on a hard drive, flash drive or SD card, get a media player like an Android box.
I won't go as far as to say "SONY sucks", but for Blu-Ray players that do more than play Blu-Rays, they're among the least capable.
i just buy 65 UHD tv, so my old blu ray player was not working on this tv
now i need a new blu ray
will take a look at OPPO UDP-205
and will check for a small pc that have blu ray player and 4k hdmi out thank
Sony UBP-X800 was not able to play my movie!
but my new tv samsung was able to play the same film but on a usb key!
or will tranfert all my film on hd?
Sony can be good for playing consumer media formats (i.e. BD discs) - especially this is important for Sony who owns studios and rights to art - they will not promote "pirates".
Blu-ray players are designed to play err umm Blu-Ray disks. If they do not then you have the simple right to return the player.
They should also play any source that conforms to the Blu-ray spec. They are not obliged to do this neither are they obliged to play any media that does not conform.
To ask for a player that plays any random, and as pandy eloquently puts it, pirated, media you are pushing the envelope somewhat.
And if you ripped your own disks then you also have the responsibility to ensure, from the supported specs (look at manual) that the player can play them or alter your encode to conform.
after watching this video i am falling for
GIEC BDP-G4390 4K 3d Blu-ray player or kaiboer K9 PLUS Blu-ray player
cool part you can add a Hard DISK wich one to buy
the Sony UBP-X800 was $300 and i return it those are 400 - 500$
wich one to bet on?

The kaiboer K9 PLUS doesn't play optical media but will play some 4K media files from a hard disk.
I'd recommend a NVIDIA Shield TV running the KODI app or a PC instead of the kaiboer K9 PLUS if you are going to play random media files that you downloaded from the Internet. If you are ever going to play retail UHD Blu-ray discs, a UHD Blu-ray player, like the SONY that you returned, is the least troublesome way to do that.

for GIEC BDP-G4390 i m sure it cannot do 4k with hdmi out 1.4
the kaiboer K9 do not have a blu-ray tray!
and NVIDIA Shield TV do not have a blu-ray tray !
the OPPO UDP-205 look good but,for the same price of new computer!!!
would be nice a android 4k player with blu-ray tray!
Then I guess you didn't mean it when you said you wanted the best. That leaves you with BestBuy and Walmart.
I don't think you're trying to play "BluRay". You haven't defined your media. Just because a piece of video has 1920x1080 frames doesn't mean it's BluRay.

Android OS doesn't support Blu-Ray or DVD drives, so that leaves you with a PC as a choice.
I have an older BD set top player, a Samsung BD F5100 BD Player. Cheap, but it plays my preferred format,
MKV with H.264 and AC-3 audio on disc or from a HDD, or from my video servers. It plays them with no problems.
Not sure about the newer Samsung BD players. You won't likely find a BD set top player that will play everything.
Really, if you want a device that will play 'most' everything you really need some form of a PC device, be it android or MS or Linux or similar.
They can usually be easily updated with new codecs and formats. Few set top players can do that.

FYI, as was reported in about thread, OPPO is discontinuing it's Blu-Ray and UHD player lines so don't wait too long if you're planning to get one. They've stated that they will continue to offer firmware updates with newer players like the UDP-203 a priority. Also they'll continue repairs until parts are are no longer available.
IIRC, Blu-Ray players aren't allowed to add full support for multiple codecs (essentially that would make them a HTPC) and non-dedicated Blu-Ray devices like media players aren't allowed to have the software to playback an actual Blu-Ray disc.
UHD (4K) requirements are even stricter which is why there are very few UHD players/writers for PCs. And those that are available have very strict requirements from the processer to the videocard.
If you do manage to find a standalone player that will play most of the current formats and codecs (e.g. whatever comes after H265) it's very unlikely you'd be able to update the firmware to play it. Leading you back to a PC to everything you want.
