    I'm mainly interested in the video side of the equation. It seems the industry standard is DLNA. As the PC can function as a DLNA server, does one require an DLNA player application from Market?

    Windows 7 has a new share function which allows the PC to act a media server. How does one go about viewing the videos on the Android device?

    Let's hear what you are using!

    I'm using Orb/Orblive right now. It's not perfect but it's the best all-around solution I've found so far.

    Homepipe can do audio and video but it's kind of slow. For audio only I really like Subsonic, sounds fantastic over 3g and it allows you to restrict the bitrate so you can minimize or eliminate buffering.
