|Streaming Video to Mobile|

Is there a way to stream Windows Media video on your phone? Or use the phone's own player to view video? Can someone point me to the right direction?

Most mobile phones that support streaming or downloaded video use the 3GP format:
Windows Media would limit you to SmartPhones that use the Windows Mobile platform, which is a small percentage of all mobile phones.

I am looking into that now. Do I embed it this way to view on mobile?
<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="themovie.3gp">
<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="false">
<param NAME="type" VALUE="video/quicktime">
<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="true">
<EMBED SRC="themovie.3gp" WIDTH="176" HEIGHT="170"
AUTOPLAY="false" CONTROLLER="true" type="video/quicktime"PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">

I wouldn't use embedding with mobile sites it's not yet enough supported in mobile browsers.
Instead use plain links
<a href="video.3gp">Watch movie</a>
Also make sure that your server sends correct mime-types
If you have apache then add following lines to .htaccess
AddType video/3gpp 3gp 3gpp
AddType video/mp4 mp4
To make links more attractive you can also use image links to show a screenshot just remember to specify alt-attribute.

I am using an NT server. How would I set up the server to send correct mime-types for this?
