I have Win7 HTPC with lots of TV recordings in WTV format. How can I watch them on Epic over 3g/wifi network?

I know there are options such as

1. orb player
2. slingplayer

They are not optimal and I would like to know any other options. Any ideas?

I just learned about allshare. Will allshare stream WTV in HTPC to the phone over wifi?

I think it should but I don't have Epic to prove it.

Just got my Epic today.

Bad news: Epic can't play WTV files using allshare. It can play avi files.
Good news: Allshare can stream videos from phone to DMA2200. I videoed my kid and played it to the big screen TV wirelessly.

WTV is only playable on Media Center PC with Windows Media Center installed.

luckily, one of my friends offered me a Step by Step Guide on How to Convert WTV to Play WTV on Mac, Windows XP/Vista and Portable Devices like iPad, iPhone, PS3, Andriod, etc. at How to Play WTV File on Mac, Windows XP/Vista, iPad, iPhone, PS3

hope it also helps for you
