I have never done this, but I use mpv in Linux and figured that it can be done there, and it can! but I only found instructions and such for Linux, and I dont know how could it be done in Windows, but while searching this I found a software that does what you want, never used it so I dont know how good it is, but it seems worthwhile to give it a try, the ...
After looking around I have downloaded and am using the Leawo Bluray player application with Windows 10 and an LG Bluray device and a Viewsonic 1920x1080 display through DVI cable.
It has been working fine with standard Bluray disks. I have not tried it with 3D Bluray nor with a 2K or 4K display though the download page ...
Application allowing you to watch videos from torrent is WebTorrent Desktop.

The TV part is easy - just connect it to a device that has HDMI output and can connect to and read from the NAS and the switch the TV input to HDMI. Personally I would suggest a Raspberry PiZero W - HDMI output & WiFi + Bluetooth: https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-zero-w/

Then you are just ...
I suggest you buy an Apple TV. It outputs HDMI, and you can get a refurbished one as low as $50. Macs, iPads and iPhones can stream to an Apple TV, audio and video.
There are software applications to stream to Macs, but no reliable ones that cost less than an Apple TV. Also, this gets you past any DRM issues and Apple TV is pretty useful by itself.
Beside KMP I've also used Media Player Classic with ffdshow filter, which are both included in the K-lite codec pack. No other filters are needed
ffdshow can be configured to display subtitles, to enable or disable various built-in codecs, to grab screenshots, to enable keyboard control, and to enhance movies with increased resolution, sharpness, and many ...
According to this list, multiple subtitles are supported by the following players:
PotPlayer is from the same developer that’s responsible for creating KMPlayer who decided to leave that project and start another. Unsurprisingly PotPlayer also has a range of subtitle options like KMPlayer, including a subtitles browser and plenty of ...
There are three major video players on Linux:
VLC, which you've indicated you don't want,
MPlayer and forks (MPlayer2, MPV)
Xine and assorted frontends (GXine, etc.)
All three of them meet the "plays many formats" criteria. All three will stall, jump, or otherwise act poorly if the CPU is overloaded or for some types of video corruption. This ...
In Linux: Beside VLC and Kaffeine (as I said in the linked question above), I have received an answer thereunder mentioning Totem player. I have also tested Dragon player, and it works, but is less useful, as it lacks a playlist display itself (therefore it can play separate TV stations saved as 1-item playlists but cannot display them as a list and help ...
If I'm not mistaken this is a bit of a factual limit. Since most videos are usually like 25-30 fps (frames per second), slowing them to one frame per second is something like the lowest point.
I did, however, found this online service Video speed changer that you can set to 0.05 and it will generate you a file that much stretched. Although I didn't check ...
