SlingPlayer for Windows Phone 7 shown on video

As originally announced a few months ago; SlingPlayer for Windows Phone 7is about to be launched. SlingPlayer was showcased today in a short video posted by the company to demonstrate how this new version looks like on Microsoft’s newly launched mobile platform. The video quality is now apparently set to VGA (compared to the vastly video quality on previous WM6.X version of the same software). No word the price or availability thought.

SlingPlayer Mobile for Android Preview

The boys at Engadget have wrapped up a quick preview of SlingPlayer Mobile for Android today. So far the biggest news here is that this Android version seems to be the fastest ever created by Sling Media. The Software is still in early beta stage and lacks a few features. Here’s what Chris had to say:

Though we didn’t have another SlingPlayer-equipped device to compare, past experience suggests to us that Sling wasn’t lying — load times are, in fact, lower here than we’re used to. That’s especially true over WiFi, where it took as little as 1.5 seconds (give or take a tenth) from launch to live video (assuming you’d already entered your login information, of course). We found this version’s remote interface to be totally usable — it’s got its own unique feel, just like every other SlingPlayer flavor out there — but we were disappointed to find no obvious way to create favorite channels. In fact, beyond using the remote and changing aspect ratio and Slingbox input, there’s no other functionality whatsoever.

I was also noted that the software suffered from some instability on Android 2.2 but this will probably be fixed in the shipping version. Check out the video after the break:

The company is claiming that this version is the fastest (thanks to the EVO 4G’s WIMAX I guess). Not much else is know and not date of availability has been announced yet. Check out the video after the break:

SlingPlayer Mobile coming to Windows Phone 7 and the iPad

According to Zatsnotfunny Sling is currently working on an iPad and Windows Phone 7 Series version of their SlingPlayer for Mobile streaming  application (and Android version is also scheduled for a summer launch). The Windows Phone 7 version will supposedly use Silverlight (for the the video & UI? or just the UI?) while the iPad version will stream H.264 content. The company is also taking the mobile client video resolution up beyond 320×240.

When it makes a noticeable difference in quality, we will definitely provide higher resolution streaming. The iPad is a good example of a device where we are hard at work on this, but unfortunately it won’t be there at the April launch.

SlingPlayer 2.0 for Windows Mobile features a new wide-screen UI

The latest version of SlingPlayer for Windows Mobile was just released and now features a new Icon based Wide-Screen UI. The Windows Mobileversion has always been the most feature rich but was until today still lacking a decent finger friendly UI. To grab this new 2.0 version just head over to with you handset’s browser. You’ll obviously need a SlingBox to use it and will have to purchase the mobile player ($29.99) when the 30 days trial expires.
