    Isn't Apple ever going to make a deal with Adobe and get Flash in Safari? That would be great if they would.

    yes there is a way to watch avi/wmv files on ipod. the sites that ur visiting, are they streaming live? or just playing a video that can be paused/rewinded etc. You'll need orbLive on both ur ipod and pc to play these files. if the website is streaming live, just get the link (using internet explorer>view>source and find it. it should be somewhere where there is insert object code for windows media player). then put that link in orb live on ur pc and watch it on your ipod

    . if it isn't streaming, download the file using download accelerators, then store that file on your PC and use orb to stream it onto your ipod. that is the only way. Downloading files will be much easier if you use mozilla firefox along with addon called 'Download Helper'. google orblive for more info.
