OrbLive is the streaming media application developed by Orb Networks for iPhone and iPod Touch. With this app, you can stream all your media, no need to sync. This app plays live TV, Internet TV, and webcams on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

“TV on the iPhone is now real,” said Joe Costello, CEO of Orb Networks. “Steve Jobs may think that buying shows from iTunes is the same as watching TV, but iPhone users know better. When the NBA playoffs are on, you want to see the game, live, wherever you are. Free.”

Orb pulls files off your Mac and streams them to any device with an app or web browser capable of accessing the Orb interface. From there you can stream music, video files, and if you have a TV tuner card, live TV. According to Orb Networks, all media streaming is optimized so it works great over WiFi, AT&T, O2, and Vodafone.

You must have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch to get OrbLive. If you are not sure how to jailbreak into your iPhone safely, follow this link to learn how you can do it risk free in 3 minutes or less.

    I think iPod video will really take off when Apple comes out with a portable video headset that gives u a bigger image. If it needs an external battery pack for it to run, they can make one that doubles as a connection station for the iPod itself.

    The biggest problem with current viewing is the view screen is too small. But put on a pair of iPod glasses and bang... 60 inch viewing screen equivalent.

    Now that's something worth travelling with.
