    NBC experimented with streaming Quicktime expressly for the iPhone, but I don't know who's still doing that. There's a lot of audio you can stream (many podcast MP3 download links, for example, will open up in the Quicktime plugin and start to stream), but video is a decidedly more mixed bag.

    Even on Apple.com, some videos will offer iPhone streaming, others not. I think the movie trailer section generally has streaming available.

    Video is just a much more fractured, complicated, and -- often DRM'd -- market, after all.

    Check out Truveo, it's kinda like YouTube, but geared more toward clips from actual TV shows. The video quality is excellent compared to YouTube also. Lots of daily news from various sources, sortable categories, most popular, most recent, etc.
