just looked in my video library, largest file I see is for a multi-language
1080p MP4/x.264 version of Parasite, 2h 11m long, 10GB.

thats 1.3 MB/sec, or about 10 Mbit/sec.   *easily* done on 100baseT.

is there any wireless between your server and the TV client ?

next largest file in 'recent' is The Irishman, also MP4 x.265 1080p, no
subtitles, english-only 5.1 AAC audio, 4.1GB for 3:29 long, thats only
335kByte/sec, or about 3Mbit/sec,  heck you could play that on 10baseT
