    I used this guy's script (https://github.com/ItsDeidara/DNSwitch) with an Apache server running on Ubuntu.
    It does the exact same thing in TV mode. I haven't tried lower res. video's yet though.

    If you haven't tried lower resolutions then most likely the partially implemented browser for router authentication doesn't have video playing capabilities (from a dev's perspective, why would it?)

    at the very least this should be re-titled "The Switch Wifi settings browser crashes when loading a video"

    at best, it shouldn't really be reported altogether

    I wouldn't take this as concrete evidence that the Switch flat out can't do it. Even the Wii U could playback 1080p from the browser. Wait for the real browser to come.

    The switch is known to panic and crash when loading MP4's. I noticed it myself when developing DNSwitch with visual studio :P

    It uses the Tegra X1, right (or some custom form of it)? The base of those can handle 4K HEVC/h265 videos from what I recall.
