cincyreds:freitasm:I thought of creating ISO images and while this works ok with VLC for Windows or Mac OS I can't find references to any media player that would mount and play ISO images.
Other than having a HTPC or Mac mini in the lounge running Windows Media Center or VLC player, any other idea?
I was looking for the same thing and found/bought a TVIX-4000SA.
I have converted ALL my DVDs (about 400) to ISO image files (using DVD Fab Platinum). I have about 5-6 terrabytes of storage on my PC containing all the ISOs.
The TVIX is networked (hard wired) and the PC runs Netshare NFS. The box can stream via wireless, but for larger content like DVDs, it should be hard wired for best playback.
The TVIX plays back the DVD image file exactly like the disc - all menus and on-screen navigation are preserved - you'd think you were watching the original disc. Virtually perfect with almost zero playback problems.
The box does a TON more and TVIX makes higher end units, but for what I need, the 4000 is perfect. It has its own remote and the on-screen functions work quite well. Overall, it's a well designed product. And if you are simply streaming from a network you don't even need to buy a unit with a HD - you can buy one without (which is what I did).
TVIX has had many fantastic reviews for quality/bang for the buck and I can confidently recommend it.
