    I have a 345mb 42min Lost episode in my movie folder on iDisk. When I try viewing it on the iDisk app on my iPhone, it loads the movie, loads the 42min at the top, but shows a screen that looks like this (((Q))). I've done some research and I found that files have a cap of 30mb for viewing on the iPhone. I talked to a "genius" and they told me the same thing. However, I found an article about the new iDisk app and the author was able to stream a 198mb mpeg4 movie on his iPhone. So, I have a couple questions, one is anyone else having the same issues that I am having and two do I have to convert the .mov file to mpeg4 file in order to view it through the iDisk app? Please anyone with any suggestions would be very helpful.

    Make sure your mov file is within the video spec limits of your iPhone. There's a chance that Apple has only enabled streaming of files that are .m4v files.
