agreed - MediaStreamer is far better -- but without playlist support /
control it's kind of pain to return where you left off each time.
There's also no way to just play a folder of files - manually loading
each one is also a bit lame.  That said, if you have the right
formats, it's quite cool to be streaming your content to your palm
from the network.
