Has anyone got this to work? I'm trying to play .mkv files from a local server. I can see the movies/server. Sometimes I can play a video, most times I can't. Could be because I don't wait for enough time to pass.... Reflashed the SD card, flashed a SATA HDD. Gotta say after that, the system seems way faster. Have done sudo apt-get update. Removed the old version(2.x.x?) of Movie Player, installed the latest version(3.0.1). I'm trying to play them over the Ethernet. I have a fast switch(it knows both machines have 1 GB speeds). I'm trying with just a low quality(audio) IPS HD monitor. Then try to migrate it to be a play server for my bigger TV with surround sound system.... I'd use wireless keyboard/mouse to command the system. Oh, the movies are all BluRay quality.
