Re: orb type programs...

How has orb never worked for you? Have you tried Kinoma Free Play?

Kinoma is about as good as it gets.

Re: orb type programs...

How is the free version? Any radio or neat options? Or just a straight player?

It's pretty darn impressive. The Orb client is one of the most powerful things, it only lacks live TV via Orb. Tons and tons of radio and other streaming audio, however to play certain media types (wma), you need the paid version.

Re: orb type programs...

Kinoma is a pretty cool program. It comes bundled with a list of tons of internet radio stations, web cam feeds and even has a GUI for Orb.

Only thing I didnt like was the automatic file association on my device. I correct this by using Resco explorer to restore the proper/prefered association.

Its definitely worth a try...espescially since there is a free version available.

Re: orb type programs...

If you have Windows Media Center on your PC, look up Webguide. Its awesome.

Even if you don't have Windows Media Center, I think it can still do Videos, Music, and Pics. If you do have media center, it can do live and recorded TV as well.

Winamp remote IS Orb, I believe. I seem to remember when installing it one time that it just came up with an Orb installer.
