I'm new to iPhone programming, and obj-C in general,
so I kind of need help. How do I make an app where
you select from a drop-down menu a url, then press
a button that will download the movie from the url
and play it. I am new so I will get confused easily.
Thanks!

You may want to read Apple's iPhone OS Programming Guide. There's a lot involved in what you just mentioned, and you need to start with the basics first.

Oddly enought, the iPhone does not support the quicktime APIs. The only video that the iPhone can display is H.264 and "MPEG-4 Part 2 video (simple profile)"--whatever that means. Instead of having any QT classes in the API, there are a number of MP (Movie Player) classes. A good place to start in the iPhone SDK documentation is MPMoviePlayerController.
