Network or NAS Media Player

I understand that Roku will not implement VLC media player, but given the shortcomings of their own fairly **bleep** player does anyone know if there are any developments in the pipeline Vis a Vis their own or any of other third party offerings?

Re: Network or NAS Media Player

All apps use the same built-in media player; there's no way around it.  Roku has clearly abandoned their own app and shows little to no interest in anything that can't provide them with an on-going revenue stream.  Streaming one's own content is way, way, way down on the Roku priority list if it's on there at all.
