REMOTE: Listen your Skype Voicemails from anywhere with Orb

Yesterday I have written about Orb's APIs for developers and today Orb made another cool plug-in available for public download: Orb-powered V4S which is the first way to get your Skype voicemails from anywhere for free! As you know, Orb gives you access to all your home media from any Web-connected device including live TV-streaming, photos, tunes, videos and more! However, now you can also listen your Skype Voicemails via Orb, thanks to V4S.

This plug-in is even more interesting because it provides you also Voicemail access from devices which doesn't support Skype Voicemail yet, like Pocket PCs (which can use Skype but the client isn't supporting Voicemail today) or Smartphone (where no commercial Skype client is released today).

To use V4S you need both Skype and Orb installed on a 24/7 running PC with broadband access which you need to access remotely from any web browser.
All you need is either a Windows Media Player, a RealOne player or a mobile phone which can stream 3GPP files (basically every UMTS/3G device).

Because I don't use Skype Voicemail (my mobile phone mailbox is already busy enough), I can not test it but maybe anyone can share the experiences you made?

Cheers ~ Arne
