    MyOrb.com & How To Watch YouTube Videos On Your Q!

    Go to Orb.com

    Sign up and download and install the software on your PC.
    Configure whatever files you want to share with your Q.
    Go to myorb.com on your Q. works best in internet explorer
    Login and then click videos.
    Scroll all the way to the bottom and click "Online Videos"
    You can now search through google, aol, dailymotion and YouTube!

    As long as your PC is running with the Orb program running you can stream onto your Q perfectly. No need for flash at all because it is played through windows media player.

    It's the best program ever for Mobile devices and requires no installation on your handset! Just on your pc!

    Thank me later. I noticed all the youtube threads so I posted this quick tutorial.

    To do the Tv part you need a TV Tuner for your pc/laptop.

    I stream movies, music and online videos on mine. Basically anything on your comp you can stream on your phone. It works for any device that an log onto myorb.com

    Has anybody tried this on a 1xRTT connection? I am guessing that it doesn't work well or work at all. Unfortunately, there is no EVDO where I live.

    It still works, but orb will downgrade the quality of the stream, ie: smaller screen, grainier audio

    I did Orb with No TV Guide (I don't have a tuner on my PC) and it worked great on 1X! I searched for Larry the Cable Guy on YouTube, found a bunch of varied length clips and there was hardly any delay or pixelating. I'm pretty pleased.

    I use ORB to watch TV on my Q, it works great.
    My speed from the desktop is about 130kbs up/1400kbs down.
    I use an EVDO usb modem, no digital cable or dsl here.

    When watching my orb streams on the phone my D/L speeds are usually
    between 600kbs and 900kbs according to the orb speed test but it's limited
    to my upload capability at the desktop because what I see in the media player
    is stated at usually between 120kbs- 140kbs.
    I can watch in a good reception area (2 bars or +) with no buffering pauses
    and the picture quality is very good.

    Can you help me then?

    Can you help me then? I downloaded Orb as well. I kept my PC on with Orb running. Should I have UTube running on my PC when I want to access it from my Q? Any other input regarding this is greatly appreciated from you as well as the Q forum!

    Thank you.

    Kindest Regards,
    abb:smile:

    Just click on Orb in the bottom tray (lower right) to have it running - that seems to be it. I mainly want to use it for looking at online video like YouTube.
