I can watch german DVB-T stream live on my Neo :-)

But not yet recorded videos, because I havent found a plugin for vdr  
to transcode recordings AND stream them.
An option would be a client that browses a samba share of recorded  
videos, but then the transcodings must be processed
anyhow beforehand.

I have created a video about that showing it working in parallel to my  
Mac showing news. But the video is currently about 2Gig :-(
Not compressed VGA size. There is also other report about the neo and  
it's usability - but german - I haven't yet translated the video
to english.

This + shrinking the size costs another day of work I think.

What could I use to get it ready for youtube (Linux or mac)?

I have created the video with my Nicon S500 camera and done the cut  
with HyperEngine-AV on my Mac.
Not good, but you see it working :-)

Some issues with navit I reported are not correct at all for now. so I  
think I will cut them out and create only a short one for vdr + neo
