Orb Upgrades “Place-Shifting” Software
MyCasting 2.0 allows you to share digital content with any Web-enabled device.
December 12, 2006 by Rachel Cericola

Orb Networks is looking to put a little YouTube in your pocket. The company just announced MyCasting 2.0, which allows users to tap into content on their PCs and share it via any Internet-enabled device.

Just log into your MyCast account, and stream any content—even live and recorded TV programs (a tuner card is required). You can even make your own channels.

Orb’s software does need to run on an always-on XP PC. Otherwise, you don’t have to buy a whole bunch of extra equipment—it’s free and works with any Web-enabled device with a streaming media player.

  • Free service
  • Streaming media player required
  • Users can create their own channels
  • Multiple view options
  • Expanded TV and video features
  • Windows XP required
