Media server that can stream video over internet


Hi Everyone,

I've been running Debian on my servers for years (and RedHat before that). Among the many tasks my home server has is that it runs Mediatomb to my PS3 - excellent and I'm very happy with it.

I now have a Virgin 50mb (with 5mb upstream) internet connection at home and I'm looking for an internet-capable streamer so I can watch my films at my girlfriends house. As I have 5mb upload, I am hoping for some good qaulity results, but I can't find anything suitable.

Anyone have any experience / recommendations? I run 64-bit Debian on a an AMD9650 quadcore with 4GB RAM
