Your TV only supports 720p. So while great for playing DVDs, it isn't that great as a monitor for the computer which would be limited to less than 1024 x 768 in a progressive mode. That said, you want a mini-DVI to HDMI adapter such as this one:
or this one:
Either one you can add a simple HDMI to HDMI cable to that will offer you as long a cable as you need between Mac & TV. Mind you, you aren't "Streaming" to the TV. Streaming implies the video playback is being transmitted in packets over time over a network at a regular interval. While it is happening from the internet to your computer, the computer is just representing live what it sees to the TV.An Apple user since 1981, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

You need audio input on your TV to be plugged into the headphone port of the computer. Your computer does not support audio over HDMI. I'll have to search for the best audio cable solution out there.An Apple user since 1981, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

You can, but the streaming is likely to stutter.
