Ill try my best to explain my question,,,

I wish to host some static video footage on a public http address


I have placed the above url within my bouquets and my box finds and decodes the video footage :P

I have tried playing a variety of different formats, mkv, avi,mp4,flv etc

Can anyone recommend the optimized file format so that my links will work without glitching?
The default player when I click on one of these links handles different formats with good or bad effectiveness.

Is it Enigma2 that decodes the video or is it a plugin? Is the built in software with open atv capable of being changed to something else? VLC for example.

Thanks for any links, information you may be able to provide.
