    Default Thoughts on MotoCast

    I found that setting up MotoCast was really simple. I barely had to do anything and all the music and pictures from my computer were on my phone. I like what Motorola did with it. What's everyone's thoughts on it so far?

    I haven't checked it out yet. Does it stream iTunes movies and music?

    It's streaming all of the music I have in iTunes.

    So do you have to pick the folders where your music is? Also, what happens if your computer is off?

    It just picked up files during the MotoCast setup on the computer. It found the files by itself. I'm not sure what happens when the computer is off, haven't tried that yet.

    If the computer is off then it doesn't work because the phone connects to your computer to stream. My issue is I only have a crap laptop that I barely use because its old and slow so I may need to purchase a ddesktop to leave on just BC of motocast!

    Has anyone noticed that during music playback that the song's lyrics scroll along at the bottom of the screen?

    That is way way cool!!!

    Yeah, the lyrics across the bottom of the screen is a nice touch.

    During the Razr event the dude took a picture and it appeared on his PC instantly. Is that using Motocast?

    Great catch, this built in music player is way better than the one on my Thunderbolt. I'm using it over PlayerPro at the moment.

    I liked the thunderbolt one because you make your own ringtone from start to finish and if theres a video for that song it had a youtube button that took you straight to the songs video wish the motorola player had this.

    Does anyone know if it will pickup info/files from a NAS? I have 90% of that stuff (pics and video) on my ReadyNAS Pro Pioneer, and point my PC at that for viewing. I'll try playing with it today, but I figured someone here might already know.

    Cool! I assume it still requires the PC to be powered on?

    Does it matter if my music has DRM protection? When moving music to my phone's SD card the songs where there but they wouldn't play.

    Yes motocast streams itunes movies that do not have the drm protection. If the movie files that you want to watch have drm protection, you cant watch it.... Im still trying to find a cloud based service that I can upload all my movies to, kind of like google music.

    It would be even better if the phone streamed photos to the computer. But I can just plug it in to the desktop and upload the shots, so no big deal. MotoCast is still way more impressive than I thought it would be.

    Anyone try streaming videos? Specifically MP4 videos?

    This would be extremely cool, but I'm guessing if it can, it sucks a ton of the PC's CPU to reformat the video on the fly when sending it to your phone.
