Well, good things can't last forever. With the release of the 3.0
software, .mp4 formats won't stream directly any more. Very
unfortunate as I just purchased the new iphone 3GS. My ipod touch
has the new 3.0 software and my wife's has the old version. She
can still stream.
I haven't had time to research, but if I find a solution I'll reply.
