Update Priorities

The following is the list of features that are highest priority of the flavor of nitoTV. There is no particular time frame, some of these things may not even be possible to replicate from older versions. Inclusion on this list isn't a promise or a guarantee that these things can be done, but we'll do our best.

1. Codec Support (Native MPlayer or VLC implementation) 
2. AFP/SMB/NFS Support
3. DVD folder/ISO Playback

Additional Notes

There will be more information added to this page pending my time to think of it, or do it.
