    Safari can play online video stream.
    Try this Chinese video site: http://iphone.6.cn
    This site has been optimized for iPhone and iPT.

    but why when you go to youtube.com, you cannot play the movies? i would like to watch any video i come across on the net, not only those in quicktime files. i have jailbroken my ipod touch, is there any app to enable this?

    most of those video sites use flash to play their media. The touch does not support flash and there is no way to add it yet.

    okay, did a lot of reading, and found that out. but does this mean there is no hope for .wmv files? and i also do not like that you cannot download pics or vids off the internet. any chance of this changing in the future?

    thanks for your help

    As for .wmv, hopefully somone will add a plugin for Safari, but no guarantees... We're hoping for Flash too...
