            i have made a few test with Flash Lite 3.0 and Flash Media Server 3  and I have to say that it is pretty easy to stream FLV Video files and  Live Video from local web camera to mobile phone. Here are a quick  instructions how to do it in Windows (I will publish Linux version  later).

            Play FLV-video from Flash Media Server 3:

            • Install Flash Media Server 3 (download developer version)
            • There are a few sample FLV files in applications/vod/media folder, so you can use one of them for testing
            • Create a new Flash Lite 3.0 file in Flash
            • Add a new Video symbol to library
            • Drag this Video symbol to Stage and give instance name to it: video
            • Type following programming to timeline:
            // make a new video-object
            var video:Video;
            // make a new NetConnection-object
            var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();

            // check connection status from server
            nc.onStatus = function(info:Object):Void {
              status_txt.text=info.code;
              if (info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.Success") {
                startStreaming();
              }
            }

            // start streaming video to phone
            function startStreaming() {
              ns = new NetStream(nc);
              ns.setBufferTime(5);
              video.attachVideo(ns);
              // play sample.flv from server
              ns.play("sample",0);
            }

            // show info to user
            status_txt.text = "Connecting server...";

            // connect FMS 3 video on demand service (default port 1935)
            nc.connect("rtmp://your.server.ip.here:1935/vod");
            • Go to Publish Settings...
            • Set Local playback security: Access network only
            • Publish your SWF-file
            • Send your SWF-file to your phone
            • Test and you should see FLV-video playing in your phone

            Play live video from Flash Media Server 3:

            • Install Flash Media Server 3 (download developer version)
            • Install Flash Media Encoder 2 (Windows only)
            • Start Flash Media Encoder 2
            • You should see your live camera in Input screen
            • Press Start-button to start sending live video to Flash Media Server 3
            • Create a new Flash Lite 3.0 file in Flash
            • Add Video symbol and programming as you did earlier
            • Modify your programming:
            // in startStreaming()-function
            // Flash Media Encoder 2 publish stream name is "livestream"
            ns.play("livestream",-1,-1,true);

            // start connection to Flash Media Server 3
            // Flash Media Encoder 2 publishes Flash Media Server's default
            // live publishing point, so connect it
            nc.connect("rtmp://your.server.ip.here:1935/live");
            • Publish, test and enjoy
