    I would really like to be able to play a VIDEO_TS folder from a network share. Maybe with the update?

    The Video_TS folder from a DVD is quite literally the container for the Video Transport Streams. You're not actually "playing the folder". Inside the folder you'll see .VOB (video object) files, .IFO (information) files and .BUP (backup) files. The file(s) you actually want to be able to play are the associated .VOB files since that's where the movies exists. Since those .VOB files are just MPEG-2 files, you can rename them to either .MPG or .MPEG for them to play as long as you have a compatible MPEG 2 codec. For the Google TV, you'll have to wait for Android 3.1 to be released which should contain the MPEG-2 codec support as indicated here: Supported Media Formats - Google TV Android Developer's Guide - Google Code

    I din't think of that. I will assemble an app that launches playback of such a VOB with the VideoView class to see if it works on 3.1
