    Is it possible to play mp4 movies from a network hard drive on my Sony google tv? I have a google tv in one room and an apple tv in another and I am sick of maintaining avi's for the google tv and mp4's for the apple tv.

    I alredy stream the avi's from my PC to the google tv, works great.

    Thank you,
    Ryan

    If you count a pogoplug as a network drive/device then yes I have been able to stream mp4 videos to my logitech revue successfully via the my.pogoplug.com website successfully. Should work the same for any gtv device. This was streamed, not downloaded.

    It's not exactly direct as it requires an Internet connection and the Web Page to access even if the pogoplug is local to your network. There is an android pogoplug client that runs but I took it off. I hear it's a bit of a memory hog plus you need a videoplayer that is streaming aware like vplayer or moboplayer. Been meaning to try gtvbox but haven't.

    You can play mp4 movies via the GTVBox app

    Thank you for the responses, i'll try them out when I get home.

    Will Plex work for streaming to a GTV form an external drive?
