    Didn't know where to post this. Just wanted to let everyone know that Orb works on the Storm. I could access all of my audio, video, and text documents that are on my home pc, from my Storm. I can even listen to a radio station's stream, or access my webcam (to see if anyone at home is using my pc) I also have an internet radio station (edgefm.net) and I can access the stream from my phone to listen to all of my shows, or my friends shows. If you have a tv card, you can access that and WATCH TV FROM YOUR STORM. (This is seriously not a plug for my site) I just wanted to let everyone know how useful Orb could be.

    orb.com to download


    After you download it onto your pc, visit myorb.com from your Storm's browser to access your home pc files.

    i just dl it today and was trying to play with it. do the video file on you comp need to be converted to a certain file format? i was trying to watch a video of mine and it give me an error. It could be user error on my part with something I am doing. Also when I go to mycast.orb.com on my storm the webpage doesnt seem to fully load, all it shows in the "home" and the "open application" icons on the top but they do not drop down. for the most part the rest of the page is blue except for a few links on the upper right that dont bring me anywhere. Any ideas, please help, this looks like a cool App

    were you trying to watch from another computer, or your phone? Try from another computer to make sure you can do that first.

    i was trying to watch it on my phone. I used Bolt Browser and I could see the whole page but when I tryed to stream a video it was trying to open BB and then gave me an error and when I tryed BB it wouldnt fully load the page. I dont have another comp unfortunitly but if I go to mycast.orb.com on my comp and stream like I am on another comp and it does works, i can tell it is streaming.

    ^ Use the BB browser not Bolt.

    I tried watching Gran Torino and it played, no video, only audio and I couldnt close out, pause, anything. Had to pull the battery, running .103

    i have and it is not working. I have been all over this forum and on Orbs forum. I guess its not ment to be. thanks for the help. I tryed everything and I also did their orb test and the video was running fine. it has to be a setting in my storm that is making the myorb.com not come up right. It is almost like it is a desktop view on a pc. it is too large for the screen and I can only see a 1/4 of what is on the webpage when looking at it on the pc. I bet it is a setting issue in my storm but who knows what it could be.

    Anyone having problems I had posted a link to have the browser set default to mobile view and then shortly after I figured out how to get the mobile view of the Orb site. Here is the link to my post

    I have never been able to stream anything to my 8830 or Storm... But it worked fine on my Q. I'd love if it would work though!

    For those having problems streaming, this might work. Through your storm, bring up orb. Go into your settings, then stream. Then you have to select 3gp Format for the storm to be able to stream files from your computer. Click save and you should be good to go.
