Default Large Files, Samba, Win98 & Mythtv

I have a linux machine (RH9, with Samba) that captures TV signals and saves the files as MPEG. Files are *LARGE* typically >= 2 to 10GIG.
Specifically, my linux box runs, and I have a Hauppauge 250 card in the linux box, it outputs MPEG video streams.
Playback is on a Win98 SE machine via your program. TWO Issues:
(1) your program seems to have a problem when files are >= 2GIG, you cannot use the slider bar, and the video stops at some position in the video file. Seems to be a 'modulus' position based on size of the file mod 2GIG.
This makes your program worthless for any show >= 30 minutes.
(2) If I stream the file via an "http:" link, your program seems to hang for ever and never display the video. (10 to 20 minutes later... it seems to be done doing what ever it is it was doing)
It sure would be nice if your package would support Myth's streaming video format so I could also watch LIVE TV and stuff like that.
