Can I watch movies on DNS 321 using Roku XDS while travel?

Postby njchen24 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 11:12 am

Greetings:

My movies are store in a Dlink NAS DNS321. I am currently use Patriot Box Office to watch these movies in my home network. However, I am unable to watch these movies while I am traveling. Will the Roku XDS be able to do this? In other word, will I be able to access and watch my movies collection using the Roku XDS with the DNS 321 while I am traveling and where I have hi-speed internet connection?

Your comment and help is greatly appreciated.

Roku boxes are not your best bet for local streaming. They only support very specific video formats, so you would most likely have to re-encode everything. That being said, at least one person has used that NAS as a server for the MyMedia channel. You can see what he went through here.
