Streaming Video Audio to iPhone 4

Apple iPhone 4 swept the board among mobie phone wars on the market which offers enhanced performance, a lovely new display, and an improved design comparing with the old editions. While the retina display of iPhone 4 offers picture quality so high which is great for enjoying video on it, iPhone 4 consumers have been faced a popular dilemma when acquiring more storage capacity for watching video and listening music on iPhone 4. In this case, shall we get any solution to stream video and audio from our PC or Mac to iPhone 4 to get rid of the 32GB capacity limitation?

The other disadvantage of having iPhone 4 is that we can't play all videos on iPhone 4, in other words, it happens sometimes that you come across a cool video while accessing internet such as AVI, WMV, MKV, FLV etc but you can't playback on your iPhone 4 because Apple iPhone 4 doesn't support these. Shall we expect one video converter alternative tool to do the video streaming job on the fly instead of converting all the video over and over again?
