So, got a question...

How hard would it be/would it be possible to cross-compile a media player for the cc (something that can be run from CLI like vlc), put it on an external storage device (if cc recognizes a connected USB device while the rom is running - maybe eureka rom, bhiga?), mount a samba share, and play a wider variety of movie formats.

So the solution would look something like this...
1. Put vlc binary on flash drive connected to cc via powered OTG cable
2. Ssh in to cc
3. Mount network samba share containing videos
4. Play whatever videos from vlc operated by cli over samba, replacing dial

Not really a programmer, and have absolutely no idea how a cc works... But it seems to me that a solution like this, while unwieldy, would allow one to bypass the limitations of cc's implementation of dial.

What do y'all think?
