What server software have you tried?   I'm using serviio on a mac but
would expect the linux version to be equivalent, with an assortment of
players (ps3, sony blu-ray player, vlc on an ipad, etc.). The trick
with video is to be sure it is encoded in a format the player can
handle directly so the server isn't transcoding on the fly.   And
avoid wifi if possible.
