Default How to stream my movies to Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way I could stream my movies that are on my Macbook to my Blackberry 8330 wherever I am?

I have an unlimited data plan, so I have internet access.

Im looking for an application like Orb Live (for the iPhone). Yeah I know this programs main feature is watching live tv on the phone, but it also allows you to stream movies from your computer to the iPhone.

To be clear I'm not interested in watching TV on the on my BB (I already have SprintTV), I wanted to know if there is an application or service that allows to stream my desktop movies to blackberry?

Thanks in advance.

So... the movie is located and saved to your macbook? and you want to stream it from there to your BB?

No.

You want to optimize the movie for your BB, and move it to your Media Card and watch it direct from your BB.

Unless I am missing something here.

Yes. The movies are on my Macbook hard drive. Im not sure if its the correct terminology to say I want to "stream" these movies so I can watch them on my BB wherever I am. I do NOT want to optimize them and move them to a SD card.

Are you saying no there are no applications or services to accomplish this?

You haven't defined what "this" is yet. If you don't want to move them to your SD card... what are you thinking... streaming your movies UP to a website somewhere and then streaming them down to your BB via the BlackBerry Data package? Not a great scenario. You'd be better off with Orb.

I can't get a grasp on what you want to do, since you've placed the limitations of NOT watching the movies from your SD card.
