[ Thanks to Linux User & Developer magazine for this link. ]

"The entire range of video and audio containers and decoders supported on its latest device would probably bore you to tears, but the fact that it has managed to conquer the entire NMT market since just 2007 with its own-brand take on network media should be enough to satisfy your curiosity (those determined to see the full list need only point their browser here). Still, it's much more than a dumb player supporting a wide gamut of file types; it's the host of other features that really makes the C-200 such an intriguing proposition. Besides being a HDD player and a full gigabit ethernet network streaming NAS box, it's also a media server (including Samba, NFS, UpnP, Bonjour and myiHome) and plays host to the MSP Portal, not to mention other third-party media server apps. On top of this it comes with a remote managed BitTorrent client, support for web video, podcast and internet radio playback and it can even act as an RSS reader."
