DLNA is a big mess.   works OK for audio, stinks for video.   The better 
set top boxes can play video files off SMB/CIFS and that works much 
better., assuming your video files are encoded in a format that the box 
supports (and most such boxes support a wide range of common video 
formats including MKV, M4V/MP4, etc)
