Hm. I remounting root rw isn't ideal but that seems to be the only way right now.
File Manager doesn't crash for me, it just scans and shows nothing. I suppose I'll do some research on that...
I can't seem to find any existing app that can access a network share (via SMB or mounting FTP or something like that). The Network tab in the File Manager seemed the logical place but it appears empty with no ability to manually add a location... Or am missing something?
I'm attempting to install VLC via Libertine to see if that does the trick but I wanted to make sure I'm not making this more difficult.
