    Hello all,

    I just discovered Orb and I'm really excited to start using it pretty much anywhere I can, so you can imagine how excited I was when I found out I can use it on my ipod touch. I have a regular ipod touch, non jailbroken, non new version, non patched and I go to the Orb web interface from Safari and I can login and see all of my videos but they won't play. It just says on top that the iphone (even though I'm using a touch) can only play like m4v's and some mp4s or 3pgs. Is it possible to get avi's to play?

    Thanks

    Sorry

    the iPod touch can only stream MPEG 4. The only sites that stream in this that I know of are Youtube, Apple, and pornographic sites (it was on the news).

    Yeah, but wasn't the point of Orb that it converted streams to whatever the particular device accepts? I looked at it briefly, I thought it would convert streams to MPEG 4 so that you could view it on the Touch and iPhone. I guess I'll have to go back and look at it.
