    Are there any programs that will stream WMV files??? I have a few sites that stream WMV only and would really love to be able to watch those on my phone.

    Did you ever find a proggy that works with streaming WMV?

    Nothing worked. So I have now moved on to using Subsonic to do on the fly conversions of my video and allow me to watch them VIA Froyo and Flash. It's a shame really cause I have a decent program on my Windows Home server that streams everything with on the fly conversion. But it only streams on WMV format and there is no changing it and with no Android WMV stream player out there it is a loss for now. But Subsonic is kinda working for me for the time being.

    That's because Android can't playback WMV's period.

    Not true. I don't believe the OS has WMV support built in, but several players including yxflash will play WMV videos.

    But streaming WMV seems to be a lost cause. I've been trying to find clear instructions on how to stream from VLC to Android. It seems to be possible but so far I haven't quite found the right recipe.
