OK for local media only.9/15/2010
This player supports almost all media formats I tried. It plays Blu-Rays(main movie only) and DVDs and from a directory or iso image. It allows playback at 1.5x and 2x with audio, a nice feature for watching slow paced instructional videos. NTFS, FAT32, HFS, EXT2 and EXT3 file systems are supported so you can share your external drive with the O!PLAY and windows, mac or linux system. You can save usernames/passwords and paths to your network shares so don’t have to re-type them at a later time. Even though the firmware is buggy and the User Interface is very basic the player works OK for playing media from external drives or LAN, however if you want online content you should look elsewhere. The online content is divided into seven categories, Radio, TV, Picasa, Flicr, Weather, Stock and RSS feeds. There is a built in list of TV and radio streaming sites provided by muzee. End user cannot add to this list, only pick from it by searching or browsing different categories. Some of the links will not play; others will crash and reboot the player. If you’re lucky you might find something of interest that actually works…maybe. There is no youtube, hulu, netflix, pandora, shoutcast, etc. The weather for the US includes only 24 cities and even that does not work correctly in the latest firmware. Interface to the online content is practically useless. Some of the “minor” annoyances include large remote control latency, lack of extra buttons to navigate DVD menus, ability to use the device as network attached storage (samba server). There is custom(hacked) firmware available with tweaks that enable youtube playback, samba server. At this time network transfers to the O!PLAY are very slow and unreliable so it is a lot faster to connect the drive to your pc and copy your media files to it. P.S. You will need to connect your storage device directly to the player if you watch blu-rays, using network adapter causes picture to slow down and skip (even wired one).
