    I'm trying to stream some videos from the internet, but I don't think I can with the factory video player.

    Is there a program anyone can recommend to stream videos?

    Some Flash videos won't stream obviously since we don't have Flash. If there is a downloadable stream, I've used the default player for them and haven't had an issue so far. You could try Meridian. I'm not too familiar with other third party video apps.

    Yeah, I just found out about Ustream, it's pretty good.

    But I wanted to watch some bloomberg videos that use wmv. Or like a stream of a soccer match. I don't think it is possible yet... :[

    As far as I know, we don't yet have a way to watch WMV files. I assume that root access allows codecs and such to be developed or ported, we just haven't seen it yet.

    orb.com will stream videos to your phone from your computer. I just used it today.
