    Hi - I have been using vlc4iphone to stream video from PC to iPhone.

    First - you need vlc4iphone v0.99 (add http://www.iphone.org.hk/apt/ in cydia). I don't think I have tried the latest version of vlc4iphone, but a lot of the version after v0.99 do not stream videos properly for me.

    Second - you need iPhone in version 2.2.1 or below. vlc4iphone (at least v.99) does not seem to work properly on 3.0. This mean one of the things I do all the time with my iPhone has stopped working on 3.0. I am actually thinking seriously about moving back to 2.2.1.

    Third - you need Windows Media Encoder running on your PC.

    Once you have these 3 things, you are all set. Just run WMEncoder, do a video broadcast of your video (or in my case, TV live-broadcasting) and encode it in WMV v7 format, then use vlc4iphone and type in the URL indicated by your WMEncoder.
