I had a great program called Air Video, it was so great, i almost chose not to upgrade to android cause it wasnt on the Andriod platform.
You installed a client on the phone, and a transcode server software on your pc, and then the magic began, you could stream any kind of video format straight from your PC to your phone in realtime. It supported mkv, divx and a whole lot of other formats. I could even stream video from my satelite tuner straight to my phone with this software. It was totaly mindblowing, and it worked both on 3g and over wifi, you just adjusted the quality of the stream in the client program on the phone. I could lay in bed, and watch my whole video archive straight from my pc on my phone, i could watch it from work and anywhere with 3g coverage.
The great thing about this program, was that everything was on the fly, and went automaticly, you didnt have to convert EVERY video file to mp4 (or simular) before you started streaming.
Now im wondering, is there a good alternative(program or guide), that will work the same way on android phones?
PS Ive tried Orb, and it couldnt realy compete, at all
