    I've actually had great luck with OrbLive. I think people expect extremely good quality video... but I'm just happy that I can read the scrolling marquee at the bottom of sportscenter!

    This is a really cool app, I'm tempted to buy the full version.

    I've found that the web app works considerably better than OrbLive. My expectations weren't unreasonable, I just expected at least as high a quality video from OrbLive as I get from the web page and it's just not there. Streaming from the web site gives full screen video with reasonable quality. From OrbLive, it's horrible quality and looks to be about HVGA resolution.

    How did you even get it to play anything at all??? When I first installed it I was able to get it to play an mp3 at really horrible quality once...then nothing. Can't play any media. Sad thing is, I had Ord on a WinMo phone 5-6 years ago that worked brilliantly!!
