Orb Launches 2.0 API and a new Developer Network Site

If you are one of those that use Orb to stream your TV and other Media over the internet, you might be interested in Orb's latest announcement. Orb Networks has released Orb 2.0 API to the public. From Orb's blog,

"The Orb API is a set of Web Services that let developers create or enrich desktop and web applications with Orb functionality including TV streaming and recording, media playing and sharing, file browsing, contacts, etc. This means that anyone can write or customize a program to search, present, play and manage content from an Orb-enabled computer, using any programming language they like."

I can't wait to see what developers come up with as I use Orb occasionally to watch videos and tv over the internet streamed from my home HTPC Setup.

The developer site is at http://developer.orb.com/
