Default Another re-encode??

Usta - My point was that industry standard HD videos (e.g. Blu-ray, broadcast HDTV and video camera - all AVCHD files) are invariably much larger than 4GB. YMMV, but I'm assuming that yours have been in some way re-encoded at some point?

I don't intend to re-encode for every device I own. I want to keep my videos in the highest quality that I can and play on them over the network. If I decide I want to travel with a video, I will re-encode to make it smaller, but my main use is in my house, so re-encoding should not be necessary.

I'd just like a player that decodes the streams it can handle in hardware (i.e. h.264 video) and those that it can't in software (i.e. AC3 audio) rather than an all or nothing approach that I seem to see now.
