Mostly interested in streaming AVI Files off my computer over the internet to another location where i can watch them. Maybe live someday but as of yet i do not have a Video Capture Card.

AFAIK, AVI is not a format suitable for streaming.

You can use Windows Media Encoder to stream WMV (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...r/default.aspx). WME will encode to WMV and stream all in one go. If you are wanting to stream files that are already in the MPEG-1/-2/-4/DivX format, try using VideoLan to stream these files (http://www.videolan.org). These are the cheapest (i.e. free) solutions that I know.

Note: WME will support up to 5 users. If you need more than that, you will have to use Windows Media Services, which is only available as part of the Windows 2003 Server family of OSes. (BTW, the link X posted is actually referring to an older version of WMS that is similarly available only on Win2k Server).
