I used my Transformer to watch via UPnP for a bit. VPlayer was the only video
player I found to play MPEG-TS, I don't think it liked the NuppelVideo
container at all. I wrote a user job to encode to a pure mpeg4 video and
RockPlayer and UPnPlay managed, just about.
I haven't worked out what codecs the default UPNP program that comes with the
Transformer can play, but it can browse the lists available from the backend.
