I used to have a software for my old Dell Axim that would mount a "disk"
(actually just a file on my PC) as storage on the PocketPC and it would
appear as local but over the network.  Have you considered looking into
software that would let you mount storage that way or even like a drive
mapping from a windows "server" which would let your video player (even Divx
mobile) play back because you're not "streaming" the file anymore?
