outcome:
as a test run i’m currently watching “assassin’s” through the network (1.4GB avi DVDRiP 480p over a G wireless
network). streaming is fine. Going to test a matroska later on.

matroska update: the streaming of a 720p mkv is a bit more slugish, but still watchable as far as i see. some speed
testing are needed i guess.
