I would like to be able to stream videos from a nas to an xp/windows 7 machine.
Is there a possibility to do this with built in (mediaplayer?) tools or is new software needed?

    what kind of NAS box is it? some of them have DNLA built in or available as an add on
    you can use Nero MediaHome but that would mean installing on your Win7/XP machine which might defeat the object.
    If you have another machine you could link that upto the NAS box and then install nero or something similar on there and then you can stream out to what ever you want
