Two big bummers. Let's hope Sun and Apple can work something out!
I am sure client side Java isn't the only way of solving those problems. The first one could be replaced by an application in C/C++/Objective-C (is Quicktime implemented on the phone?) and the last one could probably be replaced by a server side application with a web based front-end.
Don't get me wrong, since I would love to have Java on the phone, but sometimes there are different ways to approach an issue.

Yes they just did exactly this, just recently.
The AT&T Remote Monitor application now works on the iPhone, with streaming video.
No java or native application or jailbreaking necessary.
