    Hi Guys

    I need a reliable app for streaming BBC radio on my Hero, UKRadio keeps Force Closing, Beebplayer just doesn't stream.

    Anyone using anything else?

    Well it sort of works. It wont work at all with Wifi. It starts buffering then just says stopped. It does however work with 3G.

    It's been a long day, and I'm tired ... so maybe it's me .... but how do I set up a free yourmuze account?

    thanks

    [edit] nevermind ... I had a moment of clarity and went to http://www.yourmuze.fm/welcome

    ... I think I need sleep :|

    I'm probably missing something very obvious.

    BUT I joined yourmuze.fm but when I try to open a station stream I get the following message box.

    The content is not supported.

    The content is not supported on the phone. No application can be found to open this file. Do you still want to download it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just tried yourmuze.fm but I always get:

    Code (Text):
    1. Cannot play video
    2.  
    3. Unable to connect to server.
    What are you guys using to play it? Also tried 24 bit stereo/mono/parawhatsit to see if it makes a difference but nope.

    Hmm, tried clearing defaults on 'Streaming Media Player', didn't help. I've got AOR and Cherry installed just can't get the browser to use them.

    When I got home it worked using the Streaming Media Player over WiFi so I guess my carrier blocks the port it uses.

    Got Yuormuze working, but the issue is that the web interface means that I can't do something else with the phone whilst the browser is streaming. Am I missing something? It would be great if it had an app like last.fm.

    yeah, that is a major downside of it- when its streaming you cant do anything else with the phone.
