Stream Your iTunes Library To The Internet With Free Mac Orb AppNov 6th, 2009 | By James Lewin | Category: Podcast Distribution, Streaming Video, Video
Orb Networks today announced the availability of Orb for Macintosh, a free application that lets you stream your iTunes library over the Internet.
Orb lets anything from iTunes be accessed on any internet-connected device, without downloading titles beforehand or uploading anything to the cloud.
The free Orb application and service enable the streaming of any media type from computers running Windows or the Mac OS to any other internet-connected device including laptops, mobile phones, and even TVs connected to a game console. Users can enjoy all their music, photos, video and webcams anywhere, anytime, without first having to download content before they leave the house, or upload anything to the cloud. All media stays on the computer and is streamed directly to the remote device.
“Orb users are a wildly passionate bunch. They let us know – how do I say this gently – ‘frequently’ about their desire for what they described as the best media application running on the best media computer,” said Joe Costello, CEO of Orb Networks.
Orb for Mac runs on any Mac with OS X 10.5 or later. It can stream music, photos, videos, home movies, and webcam feeds stored in iTunes, on the computer, or any connected device (support for live TV, via a connected tuner card, will be included in subsequent versions).
On-the-go access to this media requires only a browser, streaming media player, and an internet connection, so every laptop or netbook, virtually any recent generation mobile phone, and many other devices like media players, game consoles, and tablet-type computers can play content from the Mac. No other hardware, software or subscription fees are necessary.
