    Orb webcam streaming with BOLD?

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    Has anybody gotten ORB to work with their PC webcam ?
    I am trying to stream it and view from my bold but no luck making it work from within ORB itself. I've followed instructions but says that it cannot play the stream "try another player "

    Any ideas?

    Thx
    Happy holidays !

    I have ORB. and I can stream fine on my bold. if your streaming option is set to WAP then that could be your problem. when your in your browser....go into options....goto general properties.......and at the bottom you should see a box checked that says "switching to WAP for streaming medai" make sure that box is NOT checked. thats what worked for me

    Orb will Stream your webcam to the Bold

    This is the best article I've found for setting up Orb with the Blackberry Bold. It tells you how to set it up for live television or videos on your computer, but if you get that working, streaming your webcam will work as well.

    Also, to clear up some of the earlier discussion, Qik is the opposite of Orb. Orb lets you stream your webcam from your computer, Qik lets you stream your phone to your computer. (ish)

    Thx for that note !

    I am trying out mobiscope ( mobiscope.com ) and it works like a charm with my webcam and my bold along with a super easy setup...
    Athough not free ( 20$ ) I think I will get a better camera and purchase it
