From Google: "Kodi is a free media player that is designed to look great on your big screen TV but is just as home on a small screen." I imagine that it's essentially the same as VLC, but maybe has clients for more platforms?
It's odd that the S3700 didn't like transport streams.... Before you take it back, how about running one of your tp/ts files through VideoReDo (or HDTVtoMPEG) to wrap it in a simple program (i.e., mpg) format and see if the player likes it better. Also, if your files are using .tp extension, try simply renaming one to a .ts extension and see if that changes the result.
P.S.: If the change in file extension works (as it does for the I-O Data player that Chris and I have experienced--see next post for his comment) I'm betting that you can alter either of those server apps to treat .tp identically with .ts as I had to do with the old I-O Data box.
