Looking for a personal cloud NAS server that has the following capabilities:
1. Remote-access from anywhere in the world that has internet-access.
2. Cross-OS functionality (Windows 7, Vista, XP, OS X 10.6+, Linux)
3. Stream video files (mkv, mpg, avi, mp4, mov, wmv) to my laptops/desktops directly from the NAS over the Internet.
4. Stream music (mp3) to my laptops/desktops directly from the NAS over the internet.
Issues I have heard about:
1. Inability to play mkv files.
2. Audio/video become out-of-sync when fast-forwarding/clicking ahead in a movie.
3. Clunky, cumbersome software add-ons needed for access.
I have researched the following to a greater or lesser degree, but it's been hard sifting through the occasionally cryptic descriptions of their respective marketing departments.
