How can I stream videos from my computer to my Android phone?

I am using VPlayer, but my problem is the following:

I have a collection of TV shows recorded as MPG files over the last five years. When I am away from the computer I use Winamp Remote Beta to stream them, in case I need them. At least on my PC it results in a stream.asx file.

If I copy the WMV file link from there and open it in VPlayer, everything is ok and streaming works, but I cannot get it to open automatically. VPlayer is one of the players that can handle the file (I guess not all players register themselves as such), but it fails to open the embedded wmv link nevertheless.

    You could look into Plex for Android. It's 5 bucks, but it has positive user reviews on the Android Marketplace. Might be worth checking out to see if solves your problem.
