Objective: To stream audio and video from my home server (linux) to my iPhone.

Problem: mp3 audio nor mp4 video won't stream either from wifi or edge to iPhone. The quicktime app loads and attempts to run then comes the "error playing movie". The smallest file size tried is 65k (ringtone). Same files play when 'sync'd through iTunes. Same files play over home network/wifi from quicktime on windows.

Working Examples: Apple trailers stream to iPhone, seeqpod streams music to iPhone.

Questions: Does seeqpod encode mp3s on the fly to stream? If so, what specs are supported for streaming audio and video?

TIA

Probably not, seeqpod is not the only game in town, tversity does video and audio and WE are about to launch a new app.

Ours streams from many different brand media servers and does both video and audio. Whether it will work exclusively on a local network or much wider, we haven't decided. there's nothing that prevents that technically though.

You have to wait for the video to download, and you see significant cacheing, our offering will be real streaming. nothing gets cached, I only have a 4gb phone but i can easily stream 2 hour converted dvd movies from the media servers we have tested with. limited number but growing.

Twonkyvision works great
eyconnect from elgato works great
dlink media server works great
tversity should work ok


nero fails miserably, and we are making it a priority to figure out why, because we think it might be the best backdoor to live tv streaming. not sure yet

Probably didn't answer your question did I?

telekinesis is a great mac remote, but I think its weak on streaming video.
