I use MXplayer (with DTS codec plugin) and it works real great but from only one of my NAS boxes (an old DLINK).
I use Total Commander with the lan plugin. I can see all my files on all my lan connected NAS boxes no problem. I can select a file and download the file (temp style) and play it from any box. However I can only stream direct from the older dlink one. I can select play and it works for all files.
Now why would one NAS box act differently in this regard. They all are accessible all allow one to retrieve a file and then it plays successfully.
Note to actually download files from the NAS (as opposed to this faux temp download for video viewing). I use Astro (and scan local network).
To restate the question, none of the NAS have passwords. What may be different between the one box and the other 3??--
