I've tried this before. With this steps I am able to download a file, ok, but, how do I have to do to stream a video directly without downloading? Is that wat you mean with 'streaming', isn't it?

Any advine will be welcome.

Thanks!

You need to update to the newest version in the app store, then there will be a play button near the download button when you click the file.

Awesome, playing video from smb works quite nicely!

One annoyance though, it seems not to check for subtitle files (e.g. srt) in shared folders, forcing you to download both files first... Would it be possible to have subtitle support for streaming?
