Why would you need the internet except to scrape. I used to use xbmc/kodi on my n54l.
Kodi
Use kodi and a hard drive then.

The same way it's been done for the last ten years, it's a basic function of kodi, Google it.

You just scrape the directory for either music/music video/Film or TV series from what I remember. Plex is just a paid version of this so it's more automated.

you need to have it connected to Internet. Plex/Kodi...whichever route you choose will need intenret access for the scraper to go off and fetch the thumbnails etc....

And the files need proper naming conventions for scrapers to work. I use therenamer for TV shows which is excellent.
