I tried curlftpfs and can copy files etc., but opening media files in totem or vlc fails with read errors. Any suggestions?

I'd try to use gvfs-mount instead, but don't know how to pass an option similar to custom_list="LIST" which tells curlftpfs to use LIST instead of LIST -a.

Do you need the -a option? Gvfs should handle it itself. – grawity Feb 17 '11 at 6:07

Most likely this is because your bandwidth to the FTP you mounted is to slow. I use SSHFS alot and even that with machines on the same local network has problems

it's the ftp server of my local router, should be fast enough – Thomas Nov 29 '10 at 16:56
