I'm running the newest version of tomatousb on a Neatgear WNR3500L router. I can connect directly to the an external drive on the router, and play video files, but they don't play reliably.
For most files, DLNA and VLC on a laptop works flawlessly, but xvid files won't play at all. A few google searches show that some dlna setups can support xvid files. Anyone know how/when this could work? I can play these files over SMB with VLC, but they tend to skip.
