Plex would be the easiest. You can scroll thru the movie to an extent. I say to an extent because its up to the client on how much is buffered. So some times your waiting at least in my experience for the client to buffer a bit more of the video. 

Hello guys, my family wants to watch movie but i dont want to take my time 2 3 hours uplaoding it to a usb stick for a movie, is there a way to stream it via internet cable bcs i dont want to loss of quality of a bluray. pc and tv are connected to is modem via cable, i have a desktop custom pc and tv is lg oled 55inch. thanks

Plex or Jellyfin or Emby come to mind for streaming and transcoding.

You could setup a Plex server on your computer. There's also ways to do stuff like this through VLC if you want to stream directly off the disk.

can't you just move the PC to the TV and connect it via HDMI? Sounds like the fastest way to me.

I use and will always recommend Plex. I have the Server component running on my PC in the background and I stream to any TV, phone or tablet easily with the Plex app.

If your TV is a smart TV that you can install apps on, check to see if there's a media player app available. Then point the media player to the network share on the computer with the video files.

 

VLC is easy to install on any FireTV-based system. It should be similar for Roku, but it's been a long time since I've used Roku for this purpose.

Another vote here for Plex if you possibly can.  It basically turns your video collection into your own personal Netflix.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak) + Ubiquiti nanoHD (OpenWRT)
ISPs: Zen VDSL (~74Mbit) + Lebara 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~700Mbit during quiet hours, ~500Mbit peak hours)

Plex would be the easiest. You can scroll thru the movie to an extent. I say to an extent because its up to the client on how much is buffered. So some times your waiting at least in my experience for the client to buffer a bit more of the video. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

You will need to figure that out. I use an Amazon fire stick, my parents use Roku sticks. You essentially install the server app on a machine and setup libraries. One thing I want to mention, hardware transcoding and Live TV are only done with Plex pass. Also if you install this on your gaming rig, you want to make sure your not transcoding a stream while you’re gaming.
