    Safari doesn't have flash, so it cannot play embedded videos on webpages. Adobe must release a plugin first. There are ways to stream videos, but I am not entirely sure how to.

    I think you can watch quicktime videos. I just watched the Ipot video @ apple on mine.

    Posted with my iPod touch.

    I think it works if it either Quicktime... or a download for a MP4 video.

    safari opens mp4 videos using wifi. put videos in a pc witch a web server (IIS or apache), open the server in safari (example, open a web folder: http://192.168.1.6/movies/movie.mp4). if you like these mp4 movies can be played on a TV screen using apple,s composite video cable, ipod touch or iphone and wifi.

    How do you open a web folder? Every time I try to play an mp4 movie, it says safari can't open the page because it's too large. Can you help? (if you can, I'll give you one on one tutoring for gpSPhone or whatever else you need)
