    Just found this last night.

    On my iPhone, i used to use catchuptv to view streaming live freeview channels on the phone.

    They dont support Android devices.

    But www.yamgo.com offer some of the channels on their free service that works fine on my Desire, although I havent tried it on 3G only wifi so far.

    Just sign up and watch, the stream is about 30 seconds behind live TV.

    Does that mean we'll be able to watch world cup matches on our mobiles?

    Did you get it to login on your Desire? I tried 10 mins ago and it wouldn't work - the screen just sits there doing nothing?

    Tried it again - just doesn't work. Screen does nothing. Tried pressing submit button, tried pressing return. Nothing works!

    Yeah, i made a post on there saying about this, but didn't say the website, thought it might be rude. But hopefully if people ask will pm them. Thanks again tho, usually i'm on a train for 4 hours a day, and this will make the journey a lot better :p

    Restart the browser or even phone, something might have gone out of sync. I'm using Dolphin browser by the way.

    Also do you mean register on the phone on login? If register try registering on a pc

    hmm, worked fine on wifi, but wont work with the 'H' symbol showing.

    on a side note, I very rarely get a 3G symbol showing. (I'm on O2 and had decent 3G coverage on my iPhone 3G.)

    Yamgo still works fine on WIFI

    H is faster than 3g do you know that? So if you rarely get 3G, but instead get H thats a good thing :p

    Generally, H(SDPA) > 3G > E(DGE) > G(PRS)

    Handy guide here for the differences.

    H(HSDPA) is the fastest,
    G(GPRS) pretty slow compared to 3g and hsdpa

    I am having some difficulty with this, as it is only letting me download an m3u8 file, which my phone doesn't know what to do with(in my profile it doesn't recognise that I am using an Android device) are you guys using any specific media player for this to work?

    EDIT: realised it was because I had "Mobile View" turned off in the browser settings,. All working now, seems pretty good for a free service, very similar to tvcatchup.com

    All I get is this content is not supported, do you want to download anyway?

    Logged in fine, what am I doing wrong?

    cheers guys.

    found i cant watch yamgo unless i'm on wireless. (perhaps O2 have blocked it?)
    but still, worth bookmarking.

    like above, maybe you need to be in the mobile version of the site

    yamgo.mobi i think...?

    is your browser set to not use mobile versions of sites?
  22. gibbs1984

    gibbs1984 Android Expert

    Yeah, tried that, on wireless and on H, on mobile view and not mobile view.

    Looking at my profile on their site it says that it can't recognise my phone make?

    Been using Yamgo for a couple of weeks. Works perfectly on T-Mobile on virtually all connections. Even had it working on a train just fine. Does everything TV Catchup does but is a lot less well known. Picture quality very good (eg you can read the streaming banner on BBC News24). Much better than Beeb Player live TV. Watched a bit of the Cup Final in a field in Brecon so will be fine for the World Cup.
    Just sign in, get it to remember your password and then bookmark it. Not everything needs to be an app!

    Excellent find! World Cup games on ITV here we come!

    Ok folks, sussed why login wasn't, t working on Desire. The text prediction / dictionary remembers some words. It remembered my username. Unfortunately if you select the word, it then adds a space. Login fails with this space. Delete the space and bingo!

    So now I'm in, I find that I can 't read the scrolling banners on BBC News. Picture quality pretty awful. Don 't think you could watch footy on this, the ball would be invisible. Anyone else found this?
