[mythtv-users] OT: Watching Videos on a PocketPC

I have an old Dell Axim X30 which I don't use for much, and figured it would be great
if I could watch videos on it.  It has a nice LCD display, and a WiFi connection.  Ideally
I'd like to be able to set it up to watch streams on it, so I wouldn't have to be always be 
copying files to it.

I've been playing with VLC on Windows, using the Wizard to set up network streams, 
but I have not been able to get it to work.  The best PocketPC media player, TCPMP, 
apparently does not support URLs, only local files.  I've been trying to get Windows Media
Player for PocketPC to open  the network streams, but so far with no success.

If anyone has had some success getting a PocketPC to work with VLC or MythTV,
I'd appreciate hearing about it.
