I frequently need to access video on a remote machine. I ssh to that machine with X11 forwarding enabled, and then run mplayer to play the video on the remote machine (and over the network). Of course, this method does not forward the audio.

I have mplayer compiled with USE=nas (which of course means that I have nas installed), but I have no idea of the best way to set this up so that I can receive and play the audio over the network as well.

Has anyone done anything like this (and if so, how)?

I will consider other ways to accomplish what I want to do (although running any type of general media server on the remote machine is out, as is anything related to pulseaudio, which is not installed, and will not be installed).

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

if you have an ssh-account on the remote machine and the video-files are stored there and mplayer is installed locally you could just use sshfs to access the files. probably less traffic, latency et al. than using x11-forwarding.

or you could install vlc on the remote machine and use it to stream the files. it has a very powerful commandline-interface that (i think) almost nobody is aware of.
GOOD LUCK!
