It will probably work but not the solution I'm after. I want to be able to play from the DVD but I don't mind using another protocol other than NFS...

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The suggestion was just for experimental purposes - to see if the problem is NFS related, or something else.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    BTW, streaming video across the network like this usually means you need to buffer well at the receiving end. You might try jiggering some of your VLC options to do that.

    I'm grateful for your input, was just saying that I would rather stream over the network as I plug the Eee into different TVs around the house and would rather not have to transport the DVD drive too. Ripping a DVD every time I want to watch one would also be a pain

    That's a good point. I'll try to get back to the stage I was at when the screeching was occurring and see if I can find any buffering settings
