    Anybody know a WORKING solution to streaming this live (via wifi)? Yourmuze doesn't work for this station (even with Cherry installed). Beebplayer is broken/discontinued (for this station at least).

    UKradio doesn't work either.

    Anybody?

    Thanks!

    :)

    I believe the BBC recently launched an Android friendly web based radio player.

    If memory serves me correctly you can find it at bbc.co.uk/mobile/radio

    Yeah, that's one of the many options that I can't actually get to work!

    Hi my phone is a HTC Desire
    I just stumbled across your post and did a little investigating.
    What I discovered was the www.bbc.co.uk/mobile/radio website will not stream through the default android browser, it says failed to connect to server.

    I use the Dolphin HD Browser from the Android Market and find that it plays the radio stations with no issues at all, why don't you try that!

    It just downloads the...whatever it is, then opens the video player and says it can't play it...

    Odd.

    Having some joy with Radiotime although it does cut out rather often which is annoying.

    I couldn't that BBC link to work in either the stock browser or Dolphin HD (getting the same 'failed to connect to server' error in both browsers) - does anyone have any alternatives?
