    video via network (multiplatform solution)


    I have some videos in different formats on my NAS (freebsd) and I want to stream the videos to my computers (windows,linux) and I need to have the ability to:
    1) switch audio/subtitles
    2) switch playbackspeed
    3) switch screen ratio
    4) handle different formats and containers (mpeg,h264,mkv,avi,...)
    5) fast forward (not only change playback speed but also set the desired position)

    Methods I tried so far:
    a) VLC-Plugin for Firefox: 1,2,3 do not work
    b) Open HTTP-Link in VLC: 5 does not work
    c) mount FTP as folder: I cannot open the files in programs in windows, only copy them
    d) stream the video via ffmpeg: 1,2,3 do not work

    Does anyone know a solution which covers all my needs in the list?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    As far as I know, all these should work with ffmpeg streaming, but you will likely have to experiment and read the docs carefully in order to get it all working. Once you figure it all out, scripting it should not be difficult, if tedious.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
