    ABC News Podcasts Work OTA on Pearl!

    Advertisement



    Check it out Pearl users:

    http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/Podcasting/

    Go there with your WAP browser.

    Try a podcast (only audio!)..It works...Sizes vary from 300kb-1400kb. Obviously the larger the file, the longer the download...I downloaded one podcast that was about 20 minutes long and took about 3 minutes to download...One that was 6 minutes long took about 45 seconds to download..This is awesome!

    I tried to follow the links and when I clicked on the video podcast that I wanted to view I got an error message stating that I am not authorized to view the content on that page. Any others getting that message? Any fixes or suggestions?

    Well, first off make sure you aren't trying to get a video podcast (which are red on the site).

    You should just be able to click where it says "Listen to the "ABC News Blah blah blah (MP3). Try the ABC News Shuffle "listen to the ABC news shuffle podcast (mp3) and let me know what it says/does.

    Also, which one were you trying to click on?

    Don't know what it will consider too large of a file...I am doing one now that is 2068kb, so I would assume that it can play files that are quite large?

    Can't do video...The videos on the site aren't made for mobile viewing...But you can do the MP3 audio streams...The video you are going to have to get from the CBS mobile alerts...They are in 3GP format so they can be played on a mobile device.

    did you notice you can save the podcast? I've been playing with this at work and didn't really want to play it in front of everyone so I hit menu>save and it dumped it to the music folder on the sd card. not bad!

    Okay, I'm a newbie too - but I also get the error message that "this file is too large". I do not have a micro-SD card (yet). Is that the issue? I am only clicking on MP3 podcasts.

    just might be that the file is too big to play. try another file and see if it will work. if it doesn't...then maybe you need the SD card for it to work.
