Nope.... I was confused for a second...
WiFi Direct is 100% completely supported by the HTC One M8. You (& I) were thinking of Samsung, which uses WiFi driect in conjunction with their AllShare/Cast function for sharing media between devices.

WiFi Direct is JUST A DIRECT WIFI CONNECTION BETWEEN DEVICES. It is up to the user to then choose an application or media server that takes advantage of the feature in order to share files or media.

Now, if you ask me, it is ABSOLUTELY SILLY that at a minimum HTC doesn't incorporate the feature into Sense for sharing via Album, or their file explorer, but what are you gonna do?

I recommend you use this app to facilitate sharing files via WiFi Direct. Works great!
