    This is what I use. It's not actually an app for your phone, but a small app that runs a server on your computer. You just type your computer's IP address into your iPhone's address bar in Safari (I've bookmarked it on my homescreen) It does exactly what you're asking for, but the movies obviously have to be in an iPhone friendly format, so the AVIs wont play. You can also set it up to be used outside your network, but you're gonna have to forward some ports in your router in order for it to work. Once setup, you can watch all your iPhone formatted videos on your iPhone FROM your computer.

    As long as the wireless hard drive is connected/mounted on your computer, you can access it.

    Air Video does this and will play almost any format you have

    +1 AirVideo is great. I bought the full version because I use it at least once a day. I also managed to get the remote access player to work for awhile but I shut it off due to viruses (on my windows pc)
