upnp?
Well for immediate personal file sharing ...
(NOT getting all the streaming video services available...
which is just not going to happen...best as I said in that case is...someone transcodes a whack of film into nxx0 compat formats and creates a kodi repo ...then all that film could be streamed ..but only that film.]
upnp?
well different ball of wax.

Soooo...the same issue still would probably apply...
I'm sure you'd still need to transcode your film into nxx0 manageable formats..
easy-peasy ...
just download mediacoder
add and use the n8x0 preset [works for n900 too]

pretty much one-click-running from there.
go to town making individual copies or batches..
makes modestly low file sized transcoded copies of your fav film

then just upnp
should work then with kodi..
theoretically ...
I have personally not tried this...but it should work.
upnp setup from latest kodi build to the older xbmc build done on the n900 [specifically speaking of what build was accomplished by that member of ours who posted the youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAH8GqYmeGs a few posts back in 2010-2011 in this thread...] should be doable .

Hm.
Actually ..
cutting the middle out of the process may be possible.
If that old n900 xbmc build can cope with PleXBMC...
that is...
at least for the new kodi on pc to recog. the old n900 build ...
then utilizing PleXBMC on the Kodi pc build...
tweaking the settings would mean allowing for immediate on-the-fly transcoding of original film to nxx0 compatible format and stream it via upnp to the n900 in question...
Everything up to actually "seeing" proper results on the n900 should work.
The applicable transcoding parameters of PleXBMC may not be enough to do it properly for what the n900 needs.
Transcoding and upnp-ing on the fly will put a wee bit of stress on your pc...it will run a bit quicker trying to do all that work and throw it at your n900...but the transcoding nxx0 for mediacoder I have isn't something hideously intensive in requirements...so it shouldn't be so bad for PleXBMC...

My suggestion is...
download and install mediacoder (free-free...there is a donation/purchase pop up...doesn't mean that you get "more" of anything other than that the pop-up stops bugging you after every so many transcodings if you donate/buy it...but hey not so bad)
add the n8x0 mediacoder preset
and at least "LOOK" at what exact presets are needed to have full screen video and audio running on the nxx0 and try to apply the same parameters to PleXBMC ...If you can't ...my guess is...it won't work...or work properly..

This solution may or may not work.
This is completely untested
It may contain peanuts, drive you mad, make you wish you'd never been born, rape your gerbil, etc...

There appears to be quite a bit of movement in transcoding in Kodi this past year ...
