    Is there anyway to stream media from the media server on my PC to the EVO? Samsung Epic is getting this capability out of the box, and why the hell do they get a movie store and we Dont?

    That's a server, lets photos go to a client.

    To play media from a server, I've found but need to try out -

    Android Dlna Player | Download Android Dlna Player software for free at SourceForge.net

    AndroMote - An Android UPnP Remote Control

    (DLNA uses UPnP as I recall (once upon a time, I actually _knew_).)

    Streaming content from Windows Media Center with an G1 Android phone - TDL Video - TDL - The Digital Lifestyle.com - digital lifestyle community

    Google is my friend. ;)

    There are some other DLNA servers for Android, I'm reading that people have twonky working - but - I'm no fan of that, personally. (It's ok and all, just a personal pref.)

    Tversity works well, I know there are plenty of other options (eg ps3 server), but I've managed to stream good quality video to my DroidX over wifi and 3g. The trick for me was to use NSWPlayer (streams instead of having to download entire file) from the market place. I heard that DVDCatalyst3 is a good video converter to use to also set your media up for streaming. Hope that helps...

    Edit: I also tested this on DROID, EVO, ALLY, and an iPhone...
