Have video on hd on another pc on network. Anything I can use to play them on droid?
Phonemypc might do what you need.
More looking forsomething like w xbox. It knows the network drive and allows to stream over the lan.
MyCast your digital media with Orb 2.0 remote pc access software
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.
Nope, the app still sucks. I only use the website.
Meh i dont really want to run a third party software to do this. But alas, i guess I have no choice. Thanks guys. Will give orb a go.
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
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.
