I would like to ask you guys, does anyone using Pi1 as client as video streaming client?
I have a few years back Rpi1, and as far as I remember, I think that it was capable to play 720p x264 content from USB disc quite without problem - after buying VC-1 license.
My idea is connect Rpi and via LAN get HD 720p x264 content from server. Does have Rpi1 enough performance to play those videos via LAN? I already using Rpi2 (without VC1) in my home and there is no problem obviously. But thinking about cheaper possibility, as my parents will move to the old house, and there will be more rooms (TVs) to connect in new infrastructure.
