iPhone playback, taking forever to start

Trying to play an XviD rip of a DVD on my iPhone. I can see on the tversity status page that it is transcoding the video. Is it trying to transcode the entire thing before it will start to play? I thought that it would do this on the fly, or am I mistaken? I have a quad-core machine that should be able to handle on the fly transcoding.

I have the same problem,but what happens is that safari times out before transcoding is done. Same problem also for the iPad:(

I’m interested in the problem.I want to get an answer.

it waits until the entire transcode is complete. If you want to stream with out waiting regardless of video format or codec, use AirVideo.
