A really good video server sounds very nice. Is it possible to put own videos (not bought from Apple shop; I record TV either as DVB-mpeg or wmv sometimes) into Fireflys video sharing? wmv probably not, right? Hmmm… this rekindles my interest to look back at the above box or an old Nokia or Sagem DBox to see how they did play streamed video 🙂
If I can get the metadata jiggered right to stream rather than copy+play, then video transcoding sounds like the next obvious step. Got plenty of “other format” video around that it would be nice to convert. Probably need a fairly stout box though. Wont’ be doing video transcoding on a slug.
