I’ve noticed this mentioned once or twice, but I didn’t turn up an official feature request thread when I tried the search. I’d really love to be able to stream video via HTTP / FTP / SFTP via Media Player instead of having to install XBMC as well. I like to keep my ATV2 as simple as possible and have been very satisfied with using Media Player over the last several versions.
FTP streaming is planned for a future version.
May you live a thousand years.
Best news I’ve heard since purchasing! Keep up the good work!
