    Orb, but don't bother with the orb application, just use the website. Unless they've recently updated the apps, the video quality from the website is an order of magnitude better.

    If you're running a uPNP server, then there's an app to do that, works pretty well too. Do a market search for uPNP

    Hi everyone,

    I recently wrote up a tutorial here that you can read that uses DVDcatalyst or Handbrake to encode the movie and Tversity to stream the file to your Droid or any other Android phone.

    Streaming Hi-Quality Video To Android With Tversity and nswPlayer

    Also I discovered that using Microsorb with Orb 2.0 instead of 2.5 works 10x better than using 2.5 with a browser. Just make sure when you install 2.0, open the Tray Manager and select Configurations, then Advance and then Codecs. Under there, make sure FFDShow is selected because that currently is the best for transcoding movies on Orb.

    Other than that, you wont get anything better quality on Orb than that due to framerate limit in Orb's software which they are refusing to fix or change.
