    Just managed to get it streaming and I have to say the quality is great (not perfect, but good!) It's comparable to the desktop browser version of TVC and certainly FAR superior to Yamgo or the old BeebPlayer live streams...

    The iphone one is great compared to yamgo. Hoping this to be as good.

    Looks basically the same as the iPhone app but browser based instead. Yamgo was a good substitution, but not a patch on TVC!

    Still can't load anything.

    Are you using the stock browser? if so would you mind giving me a quick round up of your settings please?

    At least that way, I can replicate them and when I finally do (or not) get on, I know its not my settings.

    Edit> Have you got a desire or a hero?

    did you try using 3G/HSPA ? I read on TVCatchup Mobile forum that it got problems working with wifi but it works fine on 3G/HSPA. I didn't try it but you might give it a go. Tell me if it works

    I get the same error on wifi and H. I just wanted to get Bunjiweb's settings from him to cause he has had it working. If I replicate teh settings, I should then have a set up that works.

    I think that the issues people may be experiencing (if connecting by wifi) are mostly server/ISP side. The SA vs Mexico game has finished now so there's likely to be people logging off.

    yeah, when i try connecting it comes with a message 'unable to connect to server'. Will try afterwards and see if it is because of overloading. If yes, will connect to TV 1h before kickoff next time :D

    Does Orange give you the full 7Mb/sec HSDPA mode? I didn't think so, but I could be wrong. If I'm right, your data rate over 3G might only be 384Kb/sec - which is rather slow for video streaming.

    Its working fine on my desire through WIFI and after watching the Mexico /Southafrica game on yamgo, im astonished by the picture quality.

    However its hit and miss whether I can get it to work on H. Which is what ill need it to do:(
