    Remotly watch movie Over Wifi

    Hello All,

    I'm looking for an app (or a way!) to watch the movies i'm downloading on my computer on my nexus one.
    As the SdCard is a pretty limited option (8gb!) I would like to watch my movies over the Wifi when I'm at home, So I don't have to copy the file on my phone each time...

    I have Windows 7 x64. I'm on froyo of course too:-)

    If any one know a way to do this, please let me know!
    Thanks

    No official app yet but I know they are developing one. There might be unofficial ones I'm not aware of but I would recommend waiting for the real deal.

    I already own dropbox... but this is not realy what I'm looking for... in fact, I simply want to have access to my share folder from my computer.
    For Example If I share the folder "movie" from my C Drive... So I can access it when I'm at home.
    Dropbox limit size is not that high compare to my HDD :-)

    There must be a app that allow access of shared folder from local network ?

    Oh yeah baby :-) That is what I need!
    3GP video file play perfectly through wi-fi (streaming). But Mp4 Video File, need to be downloaded completly so it can playback... not a big thing.
    Thanks!

    Try Orb. I used to use Orb all the time on my iPhone. Just haven't gotten around to purchasing it for android yet. It will play pretty much any media file off your PC.

    Orb sound intersting too. Do you know if orb will use my local network when I'm at home, or this will still use the Internet? My internet bandwith is kinda limited here...
    The good point is that it also work when I'm not at home.

    Ok Just tried Orb... video quality is not as great because of live encoding... and video is "in my case) never full screen. The good thing about ORB is that Orb support any file type. So I don't have to convert all my video to MP4.
    Tversity will probably work with android, now that we got flash...
    Other then that, I also found another app called iStream. it's a bit slow compare to orb (because of transcoding) but quality is a lot better.
