    Total noob here. Hope this is the correct place to ask this....

    So I am attempting to stream audio (vid would be nice... but audio first) from my mac 10.6.4 to my HTC EVO. I have tried gmote and homepipe. The problem I am running into is that I can not find/locate my external hard drive when both programs ask me where to find the audio. I understand I am not making this clear. Help please. Spent the last two nights trying to figure this out. So I have come to you droidform. Please help.

    No worries my fellow friend, I have too spent many and many and many nights tinkering with streaming media from my PC to phone trying all different routes possible. As far as mac solution thats readily available, I would have to say Orb for Mac and the OrbLive app for EVO will work great for audio but not so much for video.

    The problem with video at the moment is that Android uses H264 or Mp4 as its primary video format but most the Android handsets doesnt really support on the fly transcoding of video thats not compatible with Android. If you convert a video to H264 before hand, you can stream it to your Android phone but I really dont know of any programs for mac that stream Video files besides the ones for iPhones.

    i did the 2.2 update yesterday. Before that, I could receive videos from my friends who have iPhones. The videos would play. Now, after the update, I cannot play those videos. It just says that the video cannot be played. WHY? It used to play!
