    Hello. I'm new here! On internet there are many streams like mms:// To see and hear this video i need a plugin or a browser that can play Windows Media Player format... on my HTC HERO android mobile.

    Do you know about a browser or a plugin, application i can use for this? :)

    I was trying to listen to the Chiefs home opener on 101 the Fox Suday. I too had MMS links. Could not get them to work at all on my MyTouch. I had to use a Windows Mobile (Dash) to listen to the game. When I typed in the MMS to the browser, it automatically opened Windows Media on the Dash and worked beautifully. Does anyone know of an app that will play Windows Media files????

    Count me in this club. I have emailed Droidlive, Wunderradio and some of the other streaming media app people but no joy yet. From the replies, I do think it will be soon. I would suggest emailing them as well. They are sure to note the surge in requests.

    Yes, a good Dev really needs to sort this out. I would use my Droid more than I already do if I could listen to Fox Sports Radio (I can DL the podcasts, but it's just not the same)...I wonder if it's some sort of licensing issue with M$. I don't think so though, because I believe VLC Media Player will stream MMS on PC...

    I would like a Windows Media Player app also and have e-mailed droidlive.

    E-mailed Wunderradio too.

    I totally agree that this is a top app that should be made available. I just bought a HTC Droid Eris from Verizon. I spent days trying to find a app that can listen to my favorite radio station oversea and there is no such apps at this moment. I used to do that on my Ipod Touch through Wunderradio. Can someone please...

    Wunderradio would absolutely be the best solution. Radiotime seems to be a conduit to just about everything.

    After another nigth of trying, I have finally found a way to listen the mms:// stream radio on my HTC Driod Eris phone. :D
    It is not a straight shot but it works. Go to and download the Orb application into your PC, follow the intruction and add your custom radio stations' url. It takes a while but I was smiling when the voice of my familiar radio talk show coming out of my cell.
    Like I said, it is not a straight shot. You may also have problems finding your station's stream url from the website. For this, you can use URL Snooper to find the URL. This is another multiple steps process. :(
    The downside of Orb is that you need to keep your PC on while streaming the radio to your android phone.

    I don't have a solution for a native app. Wish there was one. Orb works but its a pain to either keep your computer on or set up Wake on LAN on your router.
    The easier solution is Moodio FM. Moodio FM does not provide any content. All they do is simply convert internet radio streams to formats that are suitable for mobile phones.
    On your desktop computer, go to Welcome to Moodio! | Moodio Set up a free account. Search for the station you want to listen to. Most popular stations are already on there. If you find your station, save it as a favorite. If you don't find your station, and you know the station's stream url, Find "add a new station" from the main Moodio page to enter the stream url. The instructions on how to find a stream url are also on that page.
    So, once you have all your favorite stations saved to My Stations, you go to the Moodio FM mobile site on your phone.
    Log in with the info from the moodio fm account you just created and you'll see your My Stations list. Note, you cannot add favorites to My Stations from the mobile site, so make sure to do it on your desktop.
    Click the link for one of your stations and you should be playing the station in a few moments. For me the stream comes over the native Android Video player, which is odd, but hey it works. If it's not working for you, you might need to download the free version of either StreamFurious or DroidLive from Android Market to make it work, but it will work.
    Good Luck

    Does not seem to work for me. It downloads a file then say's its invalid.

    Hmm... Moodio was one of the dozen radio apps or porting sites that I have tried. They all works ok on my ipod touch but not my HTC Droid eris. I guess it is because the HTC Droid eris runs on android 1.5, a older version OS. It does not support the streaming service provided by the websites like Moodio.

    Sorry for the delay in trying. But I just did. I was able to stream KPIG utilizing Moodio.

    Have you had any luck? I am using this all the time and am very happy with it.

    Yes thank you for checking that. Clicking on the station name instead of the URL works.

    What are using as a player? Right now, it just launches whatever the default media player is.
  24. bobburney

    It plays in a video player. Either the one that comes with the Droid or Meridian. Either way it can't do anything else at the same time. It would be nice if it played like music in the background.
    The url for the KPIG stream is rtsp://
