My System Specs

Default

When you stream from a device such as a tablet or a smartphone with XBMC, I believe it streams the files in its original format? (IE, uncompressed)

I usually rip my blu-rays to uncompressed MKV files. It works fine trough my gigabyte network, but Wifi N does not have enough throughput to handle those files.

While I'd prefer to browse my files on XBMC from a remote device, isn't something like Airplay It better suited for streaming to phones and tablets? A server can compress the file, making it suitable for a Wifi connection. It works quite nicely on the iphone, and I look forward to try it on a tablet..
