yo - it's ian, the veep of product marketing here at orb
yeah, we're working through some issues specific to the way Win Mobile 5 is handling streams that have been reported to us by folks who have early access to these devices
will keep you posted on when we get everything humming there too - as you can imagine, it's a really high priority for us
how are you mostly using orb these days?
Thanks for the update!
I'm using Orb on Pocket PC.
Watching CNN is wonderful when I'm bored at the Dentist or Dr office.
I also love having remote access to my archived divx/xvid videos!!! (so cool)
I also have added custom radio from http://www.di.fm
(trance, chill, and mostly classical)
The other big thing about Orb is it adds a HUGE "wow factor" when I give a demo of Pocket PC for various business meetings. People are blown away when they see live TV streaming to a PHONE over GPRS/EDGE! (I have the HP iPAQ hw6515)
It's even more amazing seeing live tv streaming to an ultra small SmartPhone such as the SMT 5600 Audiovox (Typhoon)
People are then very excited when they learn orb is free.
I've been spreading the Orb gospel on various forms.
I tried another program called avvenu that was simiar to orb but they dont even do transcoding!
Demo's are ALL about Windows Mobile 5.0 this month, so I hope it orb will play nice with media player 10.1 soon!
Thanks for all the fun, and keep up the good work at orb!
