Video streaming from PC to Android?

I've largely been an iPhone/iPad person. I am looking at getting a Kindle Fire or Nook color. I really just want to be able to stream video from my already huge collection of movies that I have on hand. I have used the Boxee and Airplayit applications for PC/iPad/iPhone.... Anything like that for Android or will I be stuck encoding and transferring?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Also note that UPnP and DLNA are the technology standards that look after streaming media to devices on a home network, see this previous question Is there a DLNA enabled media player for Android? – GAThrawn Dec 13 '11 at 11:35

Personally I favour Subsonic for my media streaming, which has a native Android client (along with iPhone and more).

Subsonic looks awesome; except the video playback on Android is crap. It loads up an HTML page with a flash player in it? Pretty bad quality. – AaronJAnderson Dec 13 '11 at 15:05
I haven't had any problems with quality myself, but I stream video to my phone and not a tablet - screen size may make a diff there. – Logos Dec 15 '11 at 4:14
