How hard would it be to add a Recently Played List to Air Video?

It's nice that Air Video remembers the last played video, but how about keep a list of say 5 or 10 items?

And while you're at it, how about adding just a bunch of playlist options, configurable on the server side if not through the iPhone app, or at least have some default playlists such as:

Recently Played
Top 25 Played
Newest Videos Added

And an unrelated request, are you working on an Android version?

Thanks for adding VOB format support, but why have this limitation?

More advanced options are always good. They could be hidden in "advanced settings" or something so that it won't confuse casual users but at the same time be available for more experienced users.

PS. Same thing with the continuous playback (ie. that the next video starts playing automatically). I read that some users complained about that, but for me it was an awesome feature, especially when watching TV shows... So don't be afraid to add options that the user can choose to enable/disable =)


Imagine if Apple rejects Air Video for whatever reason and none of us get to use Air Video. Don't be like Apple, let the user decide and don't decide for them. Have continuos playback disabled for VOB files by default, but let the user turn it on if they wish.
Overall, Air Video is a great product. Hopefully it would be even better with these features:

-VOB file support, like someone already mentioned.
-TS (Transport Stream) file support. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG_transport_stream
-Sort options on the folder lists (Name, Date, File size, Type, etc)
-Music (MP3, AAC) streaming support, as others mentioned. Would be killer if well implemented with album art/cover flow, iTunes playlists, etc.
-Photo streaming, not important but would be nice.
