No, you can't add your own videos to your Google Movies library.

You can stream them from your NAS using Plex (http://plex.tv) but you'll probably need a phone, tablet, or computer to do that.

Hello thanks for the response is there a chromecast app for Plex? I feel like streaming from Nas to phone then phone to Chromecast would create some frame drop and audio problems at a 4k resolution

Hey there Nathan,

 

I'm sorry to say but there isn't a Chromecast app. Byteguy has the right idea where you can stream from your NAS using Plex, but adding in a Chromecast in the middle wouldn't be viable. 

 

Best regards,
