This covers the vast majority of video sites, far too numerous to list by name,

the range of codecs and files it'll play are too numerous to mention and up to 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the Neuros LINK runs some of the most robust mature video playback software around, including mplayer 1.0rc2-4.3.2, vlc 0.9.4 and xine 0.99.5
- Firewire Streaming: (Many cable/satelite set top boxes and DVR's are equipped with firewire, allowing a device such as the LINK, to control the tuner of the STB and recieve the broadcast for viewing and changing channels all via the firewire)
