Kinoma Play is a new video and audio application that offers media browsing, search, and playback. The goal of its developers is to turn any Windows Mobile smartphone into a digital media powerhouse.
This application goes beyond organizing and playing a user’s video, audio, and picture files, by bringing in media from around the Internet through the built-in Kinoma Guide, a catalog of mobile media available online.
Kinoma Play offers:
- Media files – Play the music, video, pictures, panoramas, and audio books on the phone
- Media services – Share Audible.com, Flickr, iDisk, Live365, and YouTube accounts between the mobile device and PC
- Internet – Explore streaming podcasts, music, radio stations, web-cams and audio books from thousands of providers
- Home PC – Access the music, video, and pictures on a home PC from the smartphone – both on-demand streaming and download
“Kinoma Play offers the first streaming mobile access to your Audible.com account, so whether you want to listen to books you already purchased or are buying new ones, you get instant gratification – they are available immediately on your phone without connecting to your PC,” said Will Lopes, VP, Business Development, Audible.com.
“Kinoma Play is fast, intuitive, and shows how a kick-ass player can deliver a great media experience on smartphones,” said Joe Costello, CEO of Orb Networks. “Orb adds a whole new dimension. Now my media experience isn’t limited to what I can download and carry with me. With Orb you get anytime access to all your media — movies, music, and photos — from your home PC.”
