    I hooked up my Droid Charge to a TV using and HDMI cable, and now I would like to use it to watch videos that are stored on my PC. What is the best way for me to do that? I am open to the idea of runnning a streaming server on my PC, but would rather not do that. I'd prefer to just create a simple file share, and have the phone open the video directly.

    arcMedia Player can stream some video formates over WiFi from shares of my home network.
    Other formates the player has temporary to store at the SD card.

    I just messed with it, and it had to download the entire file in some cases. That's not really an option for a 2 hour movie.
