out of sync just as all videos seem to be on my desire. Though I'm guessing this will be addressed more by Froyo than by these companies.

You are OK and covered by your home licence to watch your mobile as long as you don't plug the phone in to the mains to charge it, at work for example.

But then they gotta catch you first...

What if you plug it into the laptop and the laptop is on mains? How specific have they been?

It wouldn't seem so. The private beta, and the regular iPhone version used to work fine over Vodafone 3G, so I'm really not sure what has changed since it went from private to public beta.

So if Vodafone are blocking streaming sites such as these, do any of the more technical minded forum users know how they block it and more importantly if it would be possible to bypass the block say via an app maybe ?

Streaming sites like TVCatchup are one of the things drawing me towards a smartphone, whilst I wouldn't use it all the time, it would come in handy for travelling etc so not being able to do it on Vodafone is a bit of a bum !

Only today on my tea break, a colleague connected to TVCatchup on his Iphone and we watched a bit of the football. Ive been going on to him for some time telling him how great my new desire will be when I get it, although its not a phone issue (its the network) im still gonna look a knob when he asks me to show him the streaming on my new phone

A bit cheesed off with Vodafone for this but im stuck with them coz I can't get a decent signal in my house with anyone else !

Just an update on my previous post but I have now successfully got tvcatchup, yamgo and Myplayer working on my Desire.

I had to go into the DMZ settings in my Router and type in the IP Address, there's a helpful thread and a helpful OP on the following forum and thread if anyone is still unable to use tvcatchup or other such streaming services via Wi-Fi: TVCatchup on Android almost with us... - TVCatchup Forums

The iPhone must use different streams to the Android ones. Not sure why one would be blocked and not the other though.

Default MyPlayer Ok, TV Catchup fails

MyPlayer works fine on my HTC Desire - quite impressive, actually, but definitely for use through WiFi only (as I was) - but when using TV Catchup and selecting (say) BBC1 I just get the message "The content is not supported" and further dialogs saying that no application can be found for the content, with an offer to download it instead.

Anyone else had the same problem?

Can you watch MyPlayer all the way through a program, like Beebplayer it stops after 5 minutes and I have to come out and resume again from that point, does it every 5 minutes which can be annoying.

Tried it with Dr. Who, but lost interest pretty quickly... (sigh; it's not as good as it used to be, etc. etc.)
But, I did survive at least five minutes with no problem.

If it's on the mains, it's a no-no it would seem. See link to article.

Today I used my sim in an iphone and TV catch up streamed perfect put it straight back into my desire and again I cant connect to server, all of this is via 3G. Why does my same sim work in an iphone but not my HTC Desire. It seems a Desire issue rather than network to me??? I'm on Vodafone by the way.

They are the same :-S the first link is the PC link which you can use on larger screens like PC/PS3/Laptops and the 2nd link is to the mobile site which is optimised for smaller screens so you don't have to zoom in all the time

I'm on O2 and haven't had any issues. It all depends on how good the signal is. I tried watching the footy last Friday when going round the M25 and in some places the picture was crystal clear, but in others I couldn't get a signal at all.

I assume vodafone are blocking the ports to encourage you to use their LIVE service and pay for the privilage.

I won't be staying with vodafone after this contract is up, if this is their game.

does anyone have any problems with yamgo / tvcatchup with any connection type? I've tried it on wifi and it still doesn't work. I've run a few packet captures and it looks like the phone is saying it doesn't like the version of RTSP the stream is using. Have tried a hard reset and it still won't connect. very frustrated...

Ok read a post from sil above - need to use http://www.m.tvcatchup.com/ not mobile on the pc.

I can't connect to either over wi-fi in my house - but mobile data works fine. Thought it was my ISP (virgin) but I went to my mates (also virgin) and it works fine?!

Figured it must be something to do with my router configuration but I don't know what! anyone got any ideas or info on ports that should be open?

I'm having exactly the same problem, it's been like this for Tv catchup, yamgo and also the beebplayer. all work fine over 3g, can't get a connection on wifi at home. Like you on Virgin so must be to do with the router but I have no idea what???

It wont happen, it would be a breach of their licence by broadcasting outside the uk.

Exactly. The same as the UK not getting content the US does on services such as Xbox Live for example.

I'm on virgin, no problems. My mate has a desire on virgin mobile, tv catchup doesn't work for him?!!

Working fine for me - Virgin Media broadband (50Mb) and HTC Desire on Virgin Mobile (over wifi).

HQ streams seem good, but slightly squashed for some reason, but decent quality!

TV Catchup is pants. Couldn't get online on my phone or laptop yesterday pm. Yes it was the England game but come on! A system that doesn't work when it gets busy is just poor and useless tech to me, especially if you rely on it.

Yamgo also didnt allow access.

I don't want to watch cooking programmes at 4am but it seems that any busy times it just struggles.

Is this reflective of the state of our internet infrastructure or the application providers??

Anyone else had the same problem?
I've tried several times and end up with the caution image. Press it and it also says "Shockwave Flash: This type of content is not supported".

Back to Yamgo for me, which works perfectly.
