Is there a way to encode a DivX file into an iPhone-compatible video file while the DivX is downloading/streaming?

Further, is it possible to re-stream the resulting iPhone-compatible video to the iPhone with a minimal (say, 2 minute or so) delay?

I've seen other questions about encoding iPhone-compatible videos but they don't quite address the streaming video source and potential of streaming output that I'm interested in.

Jonathan, your original question read like converting on the fly is a "nice-to-have", not required, feature, and the while-downloading requirement was hard to spot. i've edited the post so both of these points are more obvious. hopefully the edit doesn't misrepresent your intentions. – quack quixote Apr 17 '10 at 21:31

Buzz player app works in this scenario exactly. (however at the time of asking it was not around) The folder the video is in must be shared on the network
