Google "telekinesis". I think its now called iPhone remote, but those google results should bring you to the right place.Can anyone tell me if it's possible to stream video/music from iTunes (or another program) over WiFi to the iPhone - particularly movies (.mp4's etc.)? If so, how?
Is there a setting I am missing in system preferences? You are able to stream to your iPhone using regular mp4 or just to another computer?I havent had any problems streaming with just picking (h.264 ipod/appletv) in handbrake. With a newish basic MacPro dvds are about 20-30 mins until converted and ready to stream.
I thought this might be easiest to explain. Attached is a screenshot of the Handbrake settings I'm using. I did make a change from the iPod preset it looks like, oops.Is there a setting I am missing in system preferences?

I am sort of Jealous of PC users because of ORB. I guess some iPhone/PC users are able to log into their sirius radio. Very cool. That's the missing app I'd like to get.I just tried orb on my iphone for the first time and I must say, the audio streaming works great. I didn't try any of my DRM music though. According to orb, the video works, but it has to e in QuickTime format. Can anyone test it?
I don't remember if it is mp4 or m4v, but one of them will denote chapters. Movies from iTunes let you use them on the phone. I haven't run into a program that let's you put them in your own files, but I haven't tried too hard to look.This is all very interesting and bringing me one step closer to buying and iPhone. Especially since it circumvents the HD size factor.
Do .m4v files simply denote chapters, therefore allowing the phone to download chunks at a time?
Also, I assume there isn't away around the server file if you're running a NAS setup? You'd still have to have the program running on an active computer?
Uh, I can stream movies with MP4 extension just fine, so long as they are encoded for iPod or iPhone. You can't go over certain bit-rate or resolution for iPhone; it's not file extension that keeps it from streaming, it's how you encoded, either for your computer or for an Apple TV. 1.5kbps max bit-rate, but iPod touch supports 2.5kbps max bit-rate so expect firmware to bring this to iPhone.Once telekinesis is up and running, you open up your iTunes Library, Open the Movies Folder, click on your movie in M4V format, and you will be streaming.
