Forget about this player if you have a home network,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus O!Play Mini Plus HD Media Player (Personal Computers)
The Asus O!Play Mini Plus will play all of my video files from an attached USB drive, the problem I had was that, although it could see all files on my LAN, it streams almost nothing.
It will not play DVD and BD ISO files, but will stream VOB files, but then only one by one, not as a DVD folder (which makes watching films a tedious affair)
I bought the Asus because it has Gigabit Ethernet which my ageing Xtreamer doesn't , the Xtreamer plays everything , but stutters with BD ISOs.
I will now buy the latest Xtreamer (Sidewinder 3), which does have Gigabit LAN, and hope this solves the stuttering problem (some reports suggest that Gigabit Media Players don't necessarily work at Gigabit speeds)
To conclude, The Asus works fine with locally stored material, but is hopeless attached to a Home Network.

The manual is very incomplete (why Asus?) but this is an awesome player.
He gets all from any shared lan folder - just have to configure it.
It reads DVD folders, ISO's ... you name it!
The menus should be more intuitive...
