Isn't simply a matter of suppporting upnp|dlna and the right codecs &

While myth can be quite good about supporting new acceleration methods
(viz, vdpau adoption) it sometimes isn't (viz crystal, which seems to
be taking longer).

OTOH the device probably comes with a native player, and in
combination with ushare to mount the upnp server you could have a
workable system out of the box. (I assume here that ushare will work
on arm).
