    I have used Handbrake to convert almost all our DVD's to MP4 (web enabled) on a 2 Terabyte network drive.

    I'm looking for some "streaming application" that will allow me to watch any of these movies on my phone over the internet.

    Is there such a thing? I know I have to have a dedicated computer (gateway) to access the movies, but after searching Google for the past hour, I've given up.

    The only thing I can find is Orb, but the reviews aren't the greatest.

    Has anyone done this sucessfully, and willing to share how they did it?

    I appreciate any help!! :)

    This requires Flash and is something that allows you to watch premium TV programs etc.

    What I'm talking about is I want to setup a HOME streaming media server that will allow me to play all the videos I have stored on my computer. Streaming them to my Droid so I can watch them from wherever I have internet access.

    Thanks though

    Have you looked into MythTV? Or maybe simply VLC?
    I might try some stuff at home, but that would require on the fly transcoding (VLC does that).

    Orb works for me. There is a thread on this site that will tell you what settings you need. So far the only way I have found to play all my avi files. Since it is a stream ff&rewind are not really useable. Good luck.
