    With ORB Live i'm currently able to stream mp3, photo and live TV. However when I tried to stream my video files, I get an error telling me it can't open the video. anybody have any ideas why? my video files are regular divx avi files. i was under the impression that i do not need to re-encode them or anything.

    can you normally play these video files on the computer with the orb server installed?

    Video works fine for me too... It didnt work at the beginning because they were still being indexed, but that was over quickly.

    I don't have LiveTV cause i'm too lazy to
    a) Run a cable from my TV to my PC
    b) Install a new cable line to my PC
    c) Cheap to get one of those wireless things to connect one to the other.

    The internet TV works fine too.

    how long does it take to index? anything special i need to do after i add a directory in the media box?

    also, i have a directory of movies, under it are individual directories for each movie. when i go to browse folder in ORB, it doesn't show anything. does anybody have this problem?

    Depends on the folder... I had one about 4-5 directories deep, and it took a few minutes.
