    I havent tried mine yet, but my 3gs would only stream youtube from the app, and itunes videos.

    I have a AV dock in my car connected to 2 tv's and will probably try out the 4 this weekend on it.

    I have my composite cables attached to my HDTV, but you can only stream videos that run on the real player plug in. Any other thing like pictures or actually navigating the iOS in the TV will not work (sucks) unlike the Galaxy S that it acts like a monitor extension, the iPhone 4 does not. I usually watch videos from YouTube or www.veetle.com and they play sweet, but w/o jailbreak you'll have to turn on wi-fi to watch the HD version of the movie clips.

    I got my composite cables from eBay like for $3.55 and free shipping.

    I stream my music and Pandora on my TV with apple TV and wifi, no cable required. Works with my iPad too.

    OP, I just tried it with mediamp4.com (once I found a video that would load) and it works fine. I've got the official Apple composite cables ($50) hooked up to the TV in my bedroom (I use it for Netflix). Any video that plays on the iPhone in the native player (not VLC) can be sent through the cables to the TV. That includes anything that will play on it from the web.

    FWIW, I'm on a jailbroken phone and could have bought the cheap knock off cables but I've heard they can be quite flaky. I've yet to have any issues with the official cables.

    To tell you the truth the quality was a little flaky and at times I was getting freezes (choppy) at rates of like mili-seconds, even over wi-fi, but it must be the site b/c when I stream YouTube or veetle that doesn't happen. Hope you get your composite cables soon :)
