Windows Home Server 2011 and Windows Phone 7 app RC Video Edition

So here is the name that Microsoft give the release candidate of the Windows Home Server add in and Windows Phone 7 app… “Windows Home Server 2011 Windows Phone 7 Connector”.  Man that is a mouth full, wish it was a little simpler.  Well at least the app as it appears in the phone is a little simpler “My Home Server”.  Below is a link to a video of the add-in installation process, connecting the Phone 7 app to Windows Home Server 2011, and navigating the various screens in the app.  I haven’t have a chance to really kick the tires yet, but here is a first look.

      Apparently not since DVR-MS and WTV are not in the list of supported Codecs. I suppose if you wanted to transcode it to an WMV that would work… don't forget that the video file has to be in one of your Media Share Folders on the server to be picked up by the app.
