    Does anybody know if there is an application that lets you look at SMB shares on the iPhone? I have tried the obvious by typing the smb URL into safari, that doesn't work.

    What I'm trying to achieve is to access movies and TV shows in iTunes compatible format on my NAS drive via my iPhone and then use Airplay to send it on to my Apple TV 2. :)

    I'm kind of looking for the same thing. I know for the iPad there is an app called filebrowser that lets me view files i have on my windows server, but there is not an equivalent for the iphone. I wish they would make one!

    I found an app called iexplorer, i can see the contents of my airport extreme disk, and play media on my iPhone through it via SMB. Works quite well...

    I then tried to use airvideoenabler to send the video on to my apple tv, but get an error message on the apple tv. Anyways, getting closer to a solution... Maybe it'll work once airplay is natively enabled in third party apps in 4.3!
