Default [Q] Kindle Fire USB Port work with External Hard Drive?

Can anyone with a kindle fire confirm whether or not a USB External HDD containing various data could be directly connected for Video / Music / Picture / Documents? (with adapter of course)

The kindle seems great, but aside from the usual "connect it to your computer for mass storage" I haven't yet found an answer to this question.

If not, how successful have people been with streaming video from a HDD connected to a wireless router to the kindle fire?

I dont believe this has "USB Host" ability. And with the current stock rom I would highly doubt it is even possible if it were there.
