    I remember I use to have a app that allowed me to play music from computer on my droid. I must of uninstalled this app awhile ago an I don't remember what is was called. Anyone know what I'm talking about or suggest anything similar?

    nope... gmote lets you manage the music in your computer like a remote control. but to listen to the music in the computer through your phone is completely different.

    I heard from someone else as well that Gmote does this, never figured out how to do it on my own phone though.

    Gmote does this you can either control music and output via your PC or choose to have the music output via the droid.

    Yeah gmote was the one. As far as orb goes, that's nice software but I don't like it because it has to be done through the browser. If there was a app then it would be A LOT better.

    Just tried gmote again and you have to be on wifi to stream music to the phone. Not exactly what I wanted.

    you can set up your router to forward the required port (8889 i think) so you can stream to anywhere you have 3g. i stream my itunes music folder and all my pictures using gmote wherever i am. the built in media players can be greatly improved but for what its capable of, and for free at that, theres no complaints here from me.

    Im assuming you know how to log into your router and access/edit its settings. if not, look up port forwarding on your specific router model. Its usually a site you go to and log into for router settings. also go to gmote.org/faq to learn more about how to connect to your pc with 3g instead of wifi.

    I am going to have to try setting up the router. But being greedy, have you had any luck with video coming across as well? I have music coming through using WiFi, it says it can handle video in mp4 format, but then when I try tells me that there is not player to play that format. It is ok if video doesn't come through, but thought I would ask if anyone has been successful doing this.

    i havent been able to stream any video to the droid. even "known working" formats dont play for me. BUT, the playback ability in gmote is in beta anyway so its acceptable for now.

    I can't get Gmote to work with my Windows 7 Pro (64bit) computer. :(
    Was hoping for accessing through 3G but at the moment I can't even get it to work through my wifi network!

    I have port 8889 open through my router, I have the correct local ip of my computer, but I just can not get it to work! Windows Firewall is set to allow gmote server, my PeerBlock is currently disabled; any ideas?

    I believe you need the correct external IP address not local.

    I agree, I am happy this works with music. Pretty cool! Be interesting to see if video ever works and if there would be lag on it.

    I tried that also. Reading the FAQ on gmote's website, I can't figure out what else to try. Thought it may have something to do with Win7. I had it working with my old XP computer...that was at least a few months ago with an older version of gmote also.

    My issue with Gmote and playing music is that it has to buffer each song about 25% before playing. If you want to hear one song, no problem. But otherwise you are waiting between songs for it to buffer.

    Any better options out there?

    Buffering issue with Gmote over 3G

    I'm having a similar issue. It's weird, it shows all my albums (folders) just fine, including the very first one which I have named "! - Singles". When I go to play any song in the "! - Singles" folder it loads and starts playing right away. Though, when I attempt to play a song from any other folder, it does not start, begins to buffer, and then hangs anywhere from 25-40% buffering depending on the random file selected.

    Any thoughts/pointers/help???

    I just setup and tried GMote with my itunes folder and it works through 3G if you go through the router port steps and IP address steps from GMotes FAQ. Really cool! I've been looking for something like this!
